  Bears | Jonathan Allen impressed with Chicago    Fri Mar 24, 03:07 PM

Alabama DE Jonathan Allen recently told Sirius XM NFL Radio the Chicago Bears are the only team he has visited so far. Allen went on to say head coach John Fox made a great impression on him.

Footballguys view: The Bears have the 3rd-overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft, and Allen should be a serious consideration for the pick. He can play outside or end or inside at tackle, and Allen has the ability to rush the passer consistently. Allen could make an instant impact as a pro.

  Bears | Patrick Mahomes met with Bears    Fri Mar 24, 09:38 AM

Texas Tech QB Patrick Mahomes has had dinner with the Chicago Bears' brass recently.

Footballguys view: Even though the Bears picked up Mike Glennon in free agency, we think they could select a QB with the 3rd overall pick. That may be too high for Mahomes, but the Bears are doing their due diligence on the Red Raiders passer.

  Bears | One-year deal for Mark Sanchez    Thu Mar 23, 09:48 PM

Updating a previous report, Chicago Bears QB Mark Sanchez's deal is for one year. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Sanchez is no lock for the 53-man roster. He'll serve as a veteran backup behind newly acquired Mike Glennon. Expect the Bears to add a QB via the 2017 NFL draft too....maybe with a premium pick.

  Bears | Chicago adding Mark Sanchez    Thu Mar 23, 09:08 PM

Free-agent QB Mark Sanchez (Cowboys) is finalizing a deal with the Chicago Bears Thursday, March 23, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Sanchez is an all right backup, but the former USC quarterback is a long way from a starter. At most, he's the Bears' reliable backup to Mike Glennon and if they have to break the glass to bring him out, things will be very grim.

  Bears | Mark Sanchez visiting Bears Thursday    Tue Mar 21, 11:54 PM

Free-agent QB Mark Sanchez (Cowboys) will visit the Chicago Bears Thursday, March 23.

Footballguys view: The Bears signed Mike Glennon to be their starting quarterback earlier this offseason. They lost Matt Barkley (49ers) in free agency, so they're looking for a backup. If added, Sanchez would give them veteran depth behind Glennon.

  Bears | Kendall Wright headed to Chicago    Sat Mar 11, 07:18 PM

Free-agent WR Kendall Wright (Titans) agreed to terms on a one-year, $4 million contract with the Tennessee Titans on Saturday, March 11.

Footballguys view: This makes the second WR the Bears added in free agency. They added Markus Wheaton too, but his spot on the 53-man roster is not guaranteed. The addition of Wright should make Eddie Royal expendable. Wright had a 94-catch, 1,000-yard season way back in 2013 and it's downhill since then. We should see him play a larger role for the Bears than he did for the Titans in recent seasons.

  Bears | Chicago to host Jonathan Allen    Fri Mar 10, 11:05 PM

Alabama DL Jonathan Allen will meet with the Chicago Bears prior to the 2017 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Allen had an underwhelming performance at the 2017 NFL Scouting Combine, and there is some speculation that he could fall into the teens in the first round. The Bears have the 3rd-overall pick and they still seem intent on seriously considering Allen.

  Bears | Mike Glennon ready to show growth    Fri Mar 10, 09:31 PM

Chicago Bears QB Mike Glennon said he has grown physically and mentally and is eager to show what he can do on the field.

Footballguys view: Glennon has looked good during his time starting in the NFL. He's certainly shown the game is not too big for him. Glennon is going to get a shot, but we still believe the Bears could be interested in a rookie QB with a premium pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

  Bears | Markus Wheaton expects to be healthy soon    Fri Mar 10, 06:49 PM

Chicago Bears WR Markus Wheaton (shoulder) said he expects to be fully recovered from his shoulder surgery by April.

Footballguys view: Sweet...but it doesn't mean we're excited about him with his new team. Wheaton was a huge disappointment with the Steelers. Outside of a game or two, Wheaton underperformed and his game was plagued by drops and lapses in concentration.

  Bears | Chicago lands Dion Sims    Thu Mar 9, 09:09 PM

Free-agent TE Dion Sims (Dolphins) has agreed to a three-year, $18-million deal with the Chicago Bears, according to sources. The deal includes $10 million in guarantees.

Footballguys view: Sims wasn't great but he was about the best thing they had at the position. The upside is that Miami can grab a good tight end in the draft and guys like Martellus Bennett are still available in free agency. We don't have high hopes for Sims with the Bears either given the quarterback situation.

  Bears | Markus Wheaton headed to Chicago    Thu Mar 9, 06:40 PM

Free-agent WR Markus Wheaton (Steelers) agreed to terms with the Chicago Bears on Thursday, March 9, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Now that Alshon Jeffery is in Philadelphia, the Bears are throwing a lot of players at the wall to see if anything sticks. Wheaton has shown some talent but last year was a poor one for him, and we're not sure the situation in Chicago will be conducive to him reaching his potential.

  Bears | Jay Cutler being let go    Thu Mar 9, 01:39 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler is being released Thursday, March 9, according to sources. Cutler requested his release earlier today.

Footballguys view: So far the team leading the charge on him is the New York Jets, but there is also a rumor New York might trade for Trevor Siemian. Cutler has a strong arm and could be a decent bridge quarterback but will he play for a rebuilding team?

  Bears | Mike Glennon deal close to final    Thu Mar 9, 08:19 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent QB Mike Glennon is close to finalizing a three-year deal with the Chicago Bears, which would pay him $14.5 million per season.

Footballguys view: The Bears have to be looking at him as a bridge quarterback, and we still believe they will select a rookie signal-caller in the upcoming draft. Glennon is an average quarterback making some money due to a lackluster free agency pool, but he has the experience to survive what could be a rebuilding offense in Chicago.

  Bears | Ricky Wagner drawing Bears' interest    Tue Mar 7, 01:07 PM

Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent OT Ricky Wagner is drawing interest from the Chicago Bears.

Footballguys view: Wagner may set the market for the right tackle position. He's getting near the point where he could earn left tackle money. Don't be surprised to see him get a new deal that pays him around $10 million annually.

  Bears | Cordarrelle Patterson interests Bears    Tue Mar 7, 10:36 AM

Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent WR Cordarrelle Patterson is expected to receive interest from the Chicago Bears, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Bears are likely to lose Alshon Jeffery in free agency, so they'll need help at the position. Patterson is super athletic but he needs a fresh start after never flourishing as a receiver with the Vikings.

  Bears | Bears likely to dispose of Eddie Royal    Tue Mar 7, 02:21 AM

Chicago Bears WR Eddie Royal is likely to have his contract terminated, but the team cannot do so until he passes a physical.

  Bears | Chicago may be favorite for Mike Glennon    Sun Mar 5, 04:17 PM

The Chicago Bears are believed to have the strongest interest in Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent QB Mike Glennon and could be considered the leading candidate to sign him.

Footballguys view: Glennon turned down a contract offer to stay with the Bucs that would've paid him around $8 million a year. He's set to get more than that on the open market as a potential sponsor. The Bears could add Glennon but use him as a "bridge" quarterback if they select a rookie QB with a premium pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Chicago Bears impending free-agent WR Alshon Jeffery's agent had a positive meeting with the Bears Saturday, March 4, according to sources. Both sides are open to an agreement between Jeffery and the Bears.

Footballguys view: Most felt Jeffery would be gone from Chicago this year. It seems like keeping him is still a possibility, but the numbers have to be right. Jeffery is going to be one of the most sought after WRs on the open market.

  Bears | Connor Shaw returning to Chicago    Sat Mar 4, 01:18 PM
