3 wide receivers the Bears should target (and 1 they shouldn't) in 2024

Chicago could build this offense into a machine next offseason.

Avoid: Tee Higgins, 2024 Free Agent

Don't hear what I'm not saying. I like Tee Higgins the player.

Tons of Bears fans have made their case for why the team should sign him, and quite frankly, I wouldn't be upset if they did. However, Higgins is going to want to be paid as a top-10 wide receiver, and the Bears shouldn't make that move for three reasons.

One, and most obviously, is the fact that they're already paying D.J. Moore a good chunk of change.

Secondly, if they did pay Higgins, that would send a mixed message to Moore, who has absolutely earned every dime this season. Higgins will be coming off a down year, plus an injury midseason. Moore is the clear-cut, no. 1 on this team.

Third, and once again I'll scream it from the mountains: the Bears wouldn't need Higgins if they drafted Marvin Harrison Jr.

Higgins is a great player and very well could be a no. 1 wideout on many teams. But, just not the Bears. With the amount of draft capital the Bears have, I don't think signing Higgins will even be a thought that crosses the mind of Ryan Poles -- at least, it shouldn't be.
