The Chicago Bears have to be eyeing other teams' free-agent situations to find the perfect players to fit their team. The Miami Dolphins have some big decisions to make this offseason, and who they re-sign or let walk in free agency may impact the Bears' plans. What situations should Bears fans pay attention to?

3. Will the Miami Dolphins offensive line create options for the Chicago Bears

One of the more notable situations to watch with the Miami Dolphins will be how they handle the center position. It looked like they found a gem when they signed Connor Williams from the Dallas Cowboys and moved him to center. However, he tore his ACL in week 14 against the Tennessee Titans. Now, he is set to be a free agent. What happens? 

That type of injury that late into the season means he will miss week one. Do the Dolphins bring him back or move on? Do the Chicago Bears have a chance to get Williams on a solid deal? I'm hoping he comes back to full health and looks just as good as he used to. He is still 26 years old. 

Isaiah Wynn has bounced around and did not live up to the first-round pick status, but he has experience at left tackle, left guard, and right guard. Last year, he started six games at left guard for the Miami Dolphins. With questions at guard and the desire to bring in competition at left tackle, the Bears adding Isaiah Wynn would check all of the boxes in one. 

Kendall Lamm is another free agent. He spent most of the year backing up Terron Armstead and filling in for him when he was injured. If the Bears signed him he would push Braxton Jones in training camp. 

Jonotthan Harrison did not play more than 10 snaps last year, but he has 2,666 snaps at center in his NFL career and is a free agent, so he must be considered this offseason. Robert Hunt is the last name to consider, but Miami is most likely to re-sign him to a starter salary, and the Bears would not pay him, considering the salary that Nate Davis holds.
