With the majority of offseason moves in their rear view, the Chicago Bears now shift focus to team activities, recently wrapping up a rookie minicamp.

Plenty of offseason work now awaits the rest of the Bears roster before finally reaching training camp in a couple of months. First-year general manager Ryan Poles has added and subtracted when it comes to the personnel and players, and if fans are buying in, they likely understand this will be a process.

The guys in place right now are part of an unfinished product. This is Year 1 of Poles’ reign over the roster, and there are still pieces to add down the line yet. 2023 should be a much bigger offseason, overall, but right now it’s about laying the foundation.

Poles has his franchise quarterback in Justin Fields, despite what some talking heads might want to believe. He’s spent this offseason a little bit differently than many might have thought, but is still all-in on his quarterback.

This Chicago Bears offseason is far from over, and before it’s all said and done, we could see some big things happen.

Although the majority of player additions are in the rear view, the Bears still have some things to work through. Whether that’s adding a veteran or two yet, or dealing with some of their own guys’ contract situations, Poles is no where close to being done with the 2022 offseason.

The more notable offseason moves have included trading star pass rusher Khalil Mack while also parting with veterans like Akiem Hicks, Eddie Goldman, Danny Trevathan and Tarik Cohen. In terms of additions, the Bears have added starting center Lucas Patrick, wideout Byron Pringle, and defensive free agents like linebacker Nicholas Morrow, defensive end Al-Quadin Muhammad and defensive tackle Justin Jones.

The draft saw the Bears bring in even more firepower on defense with Kyler Gordon and Jaquan Brisker as their top two picks. Velus Jones could end up being a fan favorite on offense, too, and the Bears added a ton of depth late in the draft.

As the Bears move forward this summer, there could be more moves on the way. These five bold predictions just might end up coming to fruition before Week 1.
