Who Are the Ideal Offensive Free Agents for Chicago?


This past year, the Chicago Bears had the 23rd ranked scoring offense and the 21st ranked offense in yards gained. Many may think that the quarterback was the problem, however they seem to forget that the wide receiver corps was depleted most of the season. Alshon Jeffery missed nine total games this season and Kevin White missed the whole season with a stress fracture in his shin.

The offensive line also had struggles this season with using its second string center and second string left tackle. Kyle Long switched positions to right tackle, Long struggled at first, but progressively got better as the season went on.


Travis Benjamin was the No. 1 wide-receiver for the Cleveland Browns. Benjamin was 44 yards short of having a one-thousand yard season. Benjamin had a drop rate of 2.4 percent, showing he has a very secure set of hands. Benjamin is a good speed receiver that had one-hundred yards against the Denver Broncos this season. If Chicago were to sign him, they could place him in the slot with an aging Eddie Royal and the Bears wanting to get younger.

Cordy Glenn has been one of the best left tackles in the league since he entered in 2012. Glenn is the 5th ranked pass blocker in the league and is ranked as the 10th best tackle in the league. The left tackle position was a concern all year for the team and Glenn can be an immediate fix for that. Mitchell Schwartz was the right tackle for the Cleveland Browns and graded positively in each of his four years in pass protection; he also graded positive in three out of his four season as a run blocker. Schwartz has also never missed a snap in his NFL career. Both of these tackles are talented and young that will provide youth to the team.
