No. 2: Saquon Barkley Running Back
Running back isn’t the biggest need for the Bears but if they can land a top player like Barkley that would be huge for that room that already has some talented guys like Herbert and Johnson. A three-headed monster to an already top-rushing attack.
Barkley is an interesting case study because when he is healthy he is one of the top backs in the game but he has struggled with health and in his last year with the Giants he didn't play up to the standard that we normally see from him. However, most people would agree the Giants had way more problems on offense than Barkley having a down year.
I could see Ryan Poles singing Barkley to a two-year deal worth up to 20 million. The feeling is Barkley would take a deal along those lines and he has shown interest in playing for the Bears going back to last offseason when he had talks with Jarrett Payton son of former Bears superstar Walter Payton.
