  Bears | Brian Hoyer to become free agent    Sun Jan 15, 06:10 PM

Chicago Bears QB Brian Hoyer will be an unrestricted free agent Thursday, March 9, at 4 p.m. EST.

Footballguys view: Hoyer was limited to six games this year with the Bears. A fractured forearm ended his season after he threw for 1,445 yards, six touchdowns and no interceptions. Some team in need of an experienced QB should be interested in the 31-year old veteran...most likely as depth.

  Bears | Alshon Jeffery to be UFA    Sat Jan 14, 12:27 PM

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery will be an unrestricted free agent Thursday, March 9, at 4 p.m. EST.

Footballguys view: Jeffery has likely played his last snap with the Bears. He missed four games this year due to suspension, but Jeffery looked good when on the field despite QB changes/injuries in Chicago. Jeffery played 2016 under the franchise tag, and he'll be highly sought after on the open market.

  Bears | Rueben Randle signs with Chicago    Tue Jan 10, 05:26 PM

Free-agent WR Rueben Randle (Eagles) signed a Reserve/Future contract with the Chicago Bears Tuesday, Jan. 10.

Footballguys view: Randle was eligible to sign a futures contract with the Bears since he was out of football in 2016. They worked him out in November and must've felt like he was worth a shot. Randle had 938 receiving yards in 2014 and 797 receiving yards in 2015. There's a chance he could find a spot with the Bears, but he didn't do anything to impress a WR-needy Eagles team in 2016 training camp.

  Bears | Kevin White not running yet    Sat Jan 7, 01:41 PM

Chicago Bears WR Kevin White (leg) said he has not started running at this point but expects to be ready for offseason workouts.

Footballguys view: White had the makings of a superstar receiver coming out of West Virginia in 2015. His pro career has been derailed by injuries to the same leg. He's had two surgeries on the same leg, and White has played in only four NFL regular season games because of it. Time will tell if White can get healthy -- stay healthy -- and play up to the enormous potential he once had.

  Bears | Jay Cutler ahead of schedule    Thu Jan 5, 11:30 AM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (shoulder) is rehabbing hard and is ahead of schedule in his recovery from shoulder surgery, according to general manager Ryan Pace.

Footballguys view: We're still leaning towards Cutler and the Bears parting ways, but if they want to trade him he needs to be healthy. It's tough to figure out what the Bears are as well as their direction, so this should be an interesting offseason for Foxy and company.

  Bears | Jay Cutler's future up in the air    Wed Jan 4, 11:57 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler's future with the team 'hasn't been completely finalized,' according to general manager Ryan Pace, but Pace said Wednesday, Jan. 3, 'everything is on the table' when it comes to the quarterback position.

Footballguys view: We'd be shocked if Cutler sticks around in Chicago. With John Fox (and plenty of his assistants) sticking around it means Cutler has to go. Where he winds up -- and who the Bears replace him with -- is up in the air.

  Bears | Chicago signs slew of players    Tue Jan 3, 04:43 PM

Chicago Bears WR Dres Anderson, CB De'Vante Bausby, RB David Cobb, C Cornelius Edison, CB Jacoby Glenn, OT William Poehls, CB Rashaad Reynolds and OG Cyril Richardson were signed to Reserve/Futures contracts Tuesday, Jan. 3.

Footballguys view: David Cobb is a natural runner, but he's bounced around the league in a short amount of time. He runs with some power, but Cobb lacks the juice in his legs to crank out yards on the ground consistently at the pro level.

  Bears | Jay Cutler has surgery    Tue Jan 3, 08:30 AM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (shoulder) is recovering from shoulder surgery, which is why he wasn't available for the media at the end of the season, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Cutler is likely done in Chicago. It will be interesting to see where he ends up in 2017, but there should be a few teams interested in the veteran quarterback.

  Bears | Kevin White should be ready for offseason    Mon Jan 2, 12:43 PM

Chicago Bears WR Kevin White (leg) is expected to be ready for the offseason program as he completes his recovery from a spiral fracture of his fibula, according to the Chicago Sun-Times' Adam L. Jahns.

Footballguys view: A top-10 pick in the 2015 NFL draft, White has only played in four games over two years in the NFL. In four appearances this year, White was targeted 36 times and hauled in 19 catches for 187 yards. If healthy, he'll compete with Cameron Meredith to be the Bears no.1 WR in 2017.

  Bears | Alshon Jeffery under the weather    Thu Dec 29, 09:22 PM

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (illness) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 29.

Footballguys view: We feel pretty confident Jeffery will play this weekend, and expect him to see a lot of action. While the Vikings defense has talent, it hasn't played well the last few weeks and we don't see an improvement coming in a meaningless game in Week 17, so start Jeffery with confidence.

  Bears | Alshon Jeffery has solid outing    Sun Dec 25, 05:04 PM

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery caught five passes for 92 yards against the Washington Redskins in Week 16.

Footballguys view: Jeffery has hit the ground running after his four-game suspension. While he probably won't be back with the Bears, as long as he's competent, he should be a strong fantasy receiver again while healthy. He will be one of the most interesting offseason free agents to watch with a one-year prove it deal likely.

  Bears | Matt Barkley throws five INTs    Sun Dec 25, 04:57 PM

Chicago Bears QB Matt Barkley went 24-for-40 for 323 yards, two touchdowns and five interceptions against the Washington Redskins in Week 16.

Footballguys view: Barkley's interception number is horrendous, but he has still been effective enough to move the offense somewhat consistently, so he has still upped his stock going into free agency.
