What are the Chicago Bears' best options to upgrade at QB and wide receiver‪?‬ Bear Download — A Chicago Bears podcast

    • Football

The NFL’s new league year begins March 17. Where do the Chicago Bears find themselves with free agency and the draft looming? Dan Wiederer and Brad Biggs discuss the team’s most pressing needs — starting with quarterback. Mitch Trubisky won’t be back. Nick Foles likely will be, but the Bears probably prefer to use him as a backup. Ryan Pace says the team has a number of options, but are any worthwhile? Trading for Deshaun Watson on Russell Wilson would be no-brainers if their current teams are willing, but chances are the Bears will have to settle for a lower-tier QB. The Bears also could stand to upgrade their receiving corps. That’s the case even if they do keep Allen Robinson. The good news for those making decisions at Halas Hall: With the salary cap expected to be low, signing recognizable names for deals that cost less than they might have in other years is well within the realm of possibility.
