Mocking the Mocks: Would the Bears pass on Justin Fields at 20?

Mocking the Mocks: Would the Bears pass on Justin Fields at 20?

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports The latest mock draft from NFL.com’s Charley Casserly has the Bears going in a strange direction. While the Chicago Bears are going to get brought up in each trade rumor circulating regarding a quarterback, it’s certainly possible that the Bears will strike out on every obvious veteran upgrade out there. They may also pass on adding a QB in free agency, which would leave the NFL Draft as their only option to upgrade. Most analysts and mock drafters have all the top quarterback prospects gone before the Bears are set to pick with...

Bears have been “really persistent” regarding Russell Wilson trade

Bears have been “really persistent” regarding Russell Wilson trade

Photo by Abbie Parr/ The Bears are again linked to a quarterback rumored to be available... I suppose we can file this is the no-brainer category, because when it leaks that a seven-time Pro Bowl quarterback has interest in your team, of course you’re going to do your due diligence. But it’s still good to see the report that the Chicago Bears are indeed exploring what’s going on between the Seattle Seahawks and Russell Wilson. In case you missed it, Wilson’s agent has mentioned four teams that Wilson would be interested in waiving his no trade clause to go to,...

Chicago Bears re-sign Ryan Nall

Chicago Bears re-sign Ryan Nall

Photo by Nuccio DiNuzzo/ The Bears have begun to assemble their 2021 offseason roster. According to NFL.com’s Chase Goodbread, by way of sports agent Sam Leaf Ireifej, the Chicago Bears are going to re-sign exclusive rights free agent Ryan Nall. Nall was originally an undrafted free agent by the Bears in 2018 and he spent his entire rookie year on the practice squad. The former Oregon State running back appeared in 8 games in 2019, mostly on special teams (3 tackles), but he did get some brief offensive action during the week 17 contest that year with 2 carries for 8...

2021 NFL Draft: Pro Day Schedule

2021 NFL Draft: Pro Day Schedule

Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports With the usual NFL Combine cancelled, the pro days will be extra important as teams prepare for the NFL Draft. With the NFL Combine not taking place as usual this year due to the pandemic, the individual pro days become uber-important this offseason as a way for teams to connect with college prospects. The pro days will be the only time these players will be athletically tested and worked out before they are drafted, and each NFL team can send three representatives to the schools to take it all in. This year there will be no prospect...

A 17th NFL game in 2021 is likely, which would mean Bears vs Raiders

A 17th NFL game in 2021 is likely, which would mean Bears vs Raiders

Steve Flynn-USA TODAY Sports While the league still hasn’t made an official announcement regarding a seventeenth regular season game for 2021, it sure seems as though the NFL and the owners are pushing things in that direction. Last year’s update to the CBA authorized the owners to implement a 17-game schedule as early as the 2021 season, and with the league currently working on their new broadcasting contracts with the television networks, there could be some clarity on the 2021 season soon. A source close to the negotiations tells the Washington Post, “I...

Teams can tag players starting today, so what will the Bears do with Allen Robinson?

Teams can tag players starting today, so what will the Bears do with Allen Robinson?

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports The two-week tag window opens up today which leaves the Bears some options in regards to wide receiver Allen Robinson. The first important date in regards to the 2021 NFL season is today, February 23, as the window to designate players as “franchise” or “transition” officially opens. Teams will have two-weeks to place the tag on one of their unrestricted free agents, with the most likely player on the Chicago Bears to get tagged being wide receiver Allen Robinson. The Bears and Robinson tried to come to a contract extension...

Free agent quarterback options for the Bears

Free agent quarterback options for the Bears

Photo by Mark Brown/ Any of these quarterbacks get you fired up? We’ve had plenty of discussion about the next quarterback of the Chicago Bears of late, with the reason being, nothing else really matters until they get that position figured out. There’s only one quarterback signed for the 2022 season, Nick Foles, but he can’t be the sole plan moving forward. There has to be a splash of some sort on the horizon, but how big a splash is yet to be determined. It’s assumed the Bears’ “board of directors” either gave Ryan Pace and Matt Nagy a mandate to fix...

Mocking the Mocks: Offensive line or safety for the Bears at 20

Mocking the Mocks: Offensive line or safety for the Bears at 20

Photo by Roy K. Miller/Icon Sportswire via We round up the four latest mocks from the CBS crew to see how had it best for the Bears. Mock drafts at this point in the year tend to be all over the place as the analysts begin to overthink things or they try to give some teams a different perspective on how the board could fall. Take the latest mock from CBS Sports’ Ryan Wilson for example. He incorporates several trades into his scenario, which is fine, but when he gets around to the Chicago Bears at 20th overall, he has them going in a direction no one else has done...

Chicago Bears 2021 Roster Turnover: Can a young cornerback emerge?

Chicago Bears 2021 Roster Turnover: Can a young cornerback emerge?

Photo by Chris Graythen/ In this 13 part series we’ll take an in depth look at each position group for the Chicago Bears with an eye towards the 2021 season. We’ll speculate on who stays, who goes, and some potential additions we’d like to see general manager Ryan Pace make. Ryan Pace has drafted five cornerbacks since he became the general manager of the Chicago Bears and so far only one, his second round rookie in 2020 Jaylon Johnson, has been able to crack the regular starting lineup. Because of injuries in their secondary a year ago, the Bears were forced to...

Could the QB carousel end with Sam Darnold in Chicago?

Could the QB carousel end with Sam Darnold in Chicago?

Photo by Al Pereira/ One NFL analyst is predicting the Chicago Bears will make a trade for Sam Darnold. With Carson Wentz reported to be heading to the Indianapolis Colts for a third-round pick this year and a second-rounder in 2022 (that could conditionally end up a first), where does that leave the Chicago Bears as they search for their next quarterback? There are still several players rumored to be available via trade, the 2021 NFL Draft could have five QBs go in the first round, and the free agent market does have some experienced starters available, but what...

Eagles trade Carson Wentz to the Colts

Eagles trade Carson Wentz to the Colts

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ Depending on your point of view, the Chicago Bears either dodged a bullet or they lost out on one of the better available quarterbacks this offseason, but regardless of your take, the Bears will no longer be linked to Carson Wentz as the Philadelphia Eagles have agreed to trade him to the Indianapolis Colts. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that he and fellow NFL insider Chris Mortensen have learned that Wentz will be heading to Indy in exchange for a 2021 third-round pick and a conditional 2022 second-round pick that could turn into a...

Chicago Bears 2021 Roster Turnover: What to expect at the safety position

Photo by Robin Alam/Icon Sportswire via In this 13 part series we’ll take an in depth look at each position group for the Chicago Bears with an eye towards the 2021 season. We’ll speculate on who stays, who goes, and some potential additions we’d like to see general manager Ryan Pace make. The Chicago Bears will have some decisions to make at safety in 2021, but before they get their personnel decided on, they’ll need to have a good handle on what they’ll expect from the position. We saw some schematic things these last two years from Chuck Pagano that we...

Mocking the Mocks: Would you be good with a wide out at 20 for the Bears?

Mocking the Mocks: Would you be good with a wide out at 20 for the Bears?

Photo by Kevin C. Cox/ Some of the mock drafts around this time of year get a little predictable when making their mock picks. Take the Chicago Bears for example, consensus says that the offensive line is a big need, so when the mock drafters get around to 20 they often just take the next best o-lineman on their board. We’ve already shared several just like that, but the latest from the NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah has the Bears going in a different direction.

“Chicago is the front runner” in a Carson Wentz trade

“Chicago is the front runner” in a Carson Wentz trade

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports Earlier today on The Herd, the MMQB’s Albert Breer was dishing on the Eagles-Colts-Bears Wentz trade triangle. Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated’s MMQB was a guest on Colin Cowherd’s The Herd earlier today, and he shared plenty of thoughts on the Carson Wentz trade talks with the Chicago Bears and Indianapolis Colts during his brief segment. The Philadelphia Eagles still appear set to trade the former second overall pick in the 2016 draft, and according to Breer, “Chicago is the front runner.” Breer goes on to say that he...

Chicago Bears 2021 Roster Turnover: Khalil Mack needs help at outside linebacker

Jeffrey Becker-USA TODAY Sports In this 13 part series we’ll take an in depth look at each position group for the Chicago Bears with an eye towards the 2021 season. We’ll speculate on who stays, who goes, and some potential additions we’d like to see general manager Ryan Pace make. When it comes to attacking the opposing quarterback off the edge, the Chicago Bears have one consistent threat, and they have another guy that has a track record of doing it but was a disappointment a year ago. Besides those two, there really isn’t another viable pass rushing outside...
