Just a few days after the 2022 NFL Draft, and another wave of free agency should be kicking off. Now that the Chicago Bears have their rookies on board, it’s time to start filling in additional holes on this roster.

Of course, the biggest area of concern remains at wide receiver for this team. Darnell Mooney, Byron Pringle and rookie Velus Jones Jr. are the top three names in that room, and fans are still concerned about the lack of true depth.

While there are some solid free agents still available at wide receiver, the Bears could also look at signing a veteran offensive lineman.

The Bears currently have three starting linemen at this very moment, with a bunch of other guys set to compete for two other spots.

The Chicago Bears could still sign a veteran free agent offensive lineman to come in and immediately start.

Chicago’s current starters are Teven Jenkins, Lucas Patrick and Cody Whitehair. Beyond those three, no one knows who the other two starters will be. It could be Larry Borom at tackle, the second-year pro. Or, newly-drafted rookie out of Souther Utah, Braxton Jones, might supplant him.

The Bears also drafted Zachary Thomas out of San Diego State, Doug Kramer out of Illinois and Ja’Tyre Carter out of Southern. These young guys should come in and compete for a spot along with Dakota Dozier, Julian Davenport, Sam Mustipher and Lachavious Simmons.

None of the above names are locks to start, but the Bears should have plenty of competition during camp this year. Now, if they wanted to go out and sign a sure fire starter, one of the following available free agents could become huge assets.
