Well Chicago Bears fans, we’ve almost made it. We are less than one week away from the beginning of the “legal tampering” period of the NFL free agency period. While teams cannot sign any deals with players until March 19th, they may begin to negotiate with players on the 16th. Although Ryan Pace and company appear to have some holes to fill, it’s worth wondering whether fans should temper their expectations, or risk being extremely disappointed.
All offseason, fans have been clamoring for upgrades at a variety of positions. While the quarterback position may be leading the way, there is a strong contingent of folks who would argue tight end and offensive line are the more pressing needs.
