2. Should the Chicago Bears sign any of these Washington Commanders rushers?

The Washington Commanders traded the best of their edge rushers, and now they just have some depth pieces left. Even there, most of the rushers who led the way after Montez Sweat and Chase Young were gone are going to be free agents. 

The Bears need depth behind Sweat, so why not add the old players who were depth behind Sweat? Casey Toohill, James Smith-Williams, and Efe Obada are all free agents. 

Obada dealt with injury and otherwise may have been the best of them all. He could be a sleeper addition as a depth edge rusher in free agency. Toohill has bounced from Philadelphia to Washington and has not had much success. Smith-Williams did not set the world on fire, but 15 of his 23 pressures came after Sweat and Young were traded, showing he took advantage of the bump in play the most.

All three are depth options, but the Bears need to add to this group in the worst way. Do not be surprised if all three are on the Bears' radar.
