2. Will the Chicago Bears have an interest in Laviska Shenault?

The Chicago Bears are going to need to rebuild their receiver room. While this name will not fix everything, one free agent that could be signed is Laviska Shenault. At the very least, Shenault does a lot of the things that the Bears wish they could get from Velus Jones. 

Last year, Shenault had ten receptions and 12 rushes. Perhaps the Chicago Bears' new offensive coordinator is the person who can finally start to use him right. Perhaps next year, he will finally make that move to be the next Cordarelle Patterson. 

The Bears could use this gadget player in the running back room as well. The addition would mean the end of Jones, but the Bears should be done with that experiment after two seasons anyway. 

Shenault has 1,551 yards receiving and 252 yards rushing in four years. He is going to be cheap, but he will be available. Bears fans should at least think about his addition.
