The Chicago Bears should absolutely have an interest in New York Giants’ free-agent Markus Golden.
With free-agency (legal tampering period) set to kick off in just three days, one player who needs to be on the Chicago Bears’ radar is edge rusher Markus Golden. The former second-round pick in 2015 out of the University of Missouri has had a bit of an up-and-down career but could be primed for a breakout after last season.
Drafted by the Arizona Cardinals, Golden didn’t do much his rookie year but recorded 12.5 sacks in his second year under defensive coordinator James Bettcher, who was with the Cardinals from 2015-2017. For Golden, 2017 was a bit of a wasted year, as he only played in four games. The following year, while appearing in 11 games, he still managed only 2.5 sacks. However, Bettcher was not with the team at that tie, having taken the defensive coordinator position with the New York Giants.
