When looking at the Chicago Bears‘ current free agent signings, fans have the right to feel a bit uneasy. Ryan Poles is approaching his first year as general manager very cautiously which is understandable. But, the future of this team depends on quarterback Justin Fields developing — and that means he needs talent around him.

So far, guys like center Lucas Patrick and wide receiver Byron Pringle are the only notable names the Bears have signed on the offensive side of the ball. There have been others, but none that will make much of an impact.

Defensively, one could argue that the Bears have made even more impactful signings than on the offensive side. Nicholas Morrow, Al-Quadin Muhammad and Justin Jones could all three step in and start right away.

There is still much work to be done, though, and the free agent pool is drying up a bit.

Although most of the bigger names are gone, the Chicago Bears have plenty of bargains to be had in free agency.

This first year under Poles will likely see the Bears bring in quite a few guys on one or two-year deals, as we’ve seen so far. Poles is trying to play the compensatory pick formula so that the 2023 offseason is as good as it can be.

With plenty of holes still on this roster, there are a good amount of veteran free agents available that could help in a variety of ways. Chicago still needs some starters filled in, but also have a lot of depth to go out and get.

If they wanted to sign a few more bargain type free agents, Poles and the Bears could look at any of the following players. In their own rights, each of them would definitely add value to this team.
