Target: Marquise Brown, 2024 Free Agent

This idea highly depends on what Marquise Brown's camp is demanding, contract-wise. No longer should he be looked at as a legitimate WR1 option. Instead, I believe he is a top-tier WR2 option. Although, on the Bears, he might end up as the no. 3 option.

Would that be ideal for him? Probably not. But, you know who it would be ideal for? Justin Fields.

Imagine "Hollywood" as the deep threat, with Harrison and D.J. Moore also capable of doing just about anything and lining up anywhere within that offense.

The further we get into this season, the more it seems like Darnell Mooney is destined to sign with another team, so the Bears are going to need a third wide receiver if they plan to take Harrison. Rookie Tyler Scott has struggled, and might not be the ideal Mooney replacement just as we all thought he might be, initially.

This season is the final year of Brown's rookie contract, paying him over $13 million. He likely isn't worth that much, annually, going forward. He's only posted a single 1,000-yard season in five years and isn't on pace for that number in 2023.
