Orlando Brown is a FA. that would be my #1 target in the FA market. He's only 26 and an anchor for an o-line. Not often a stud LT comes available on the FA market at that age.

Marcus Davenport is the 2nd target, and I think Jamel Dean from the Bucs is my 3rd. If we can sign those 3 players no matter what happens in the draft its been a great offseason.]

A cheaper CB target would be Sean Murphy Bunting.

I think Brown/Davenport are must haves considering the state of both lines.

Greg Gabriel has tweeted that Orlando Brown does not fit the Bears OLine scheme

Enough with forcing square pegs into round holes. Maybe draft/sign guys for a oline positions they are suited (and have played) for ? Novel idea ! It. Just. Might. Work......

I like Gabriel and listen to his podcast all the time, but that's bullshit!  Brown's combine numbers are ancient history.  He's young, he's an upgrade, and he's experienced.  Frontload the hell out of that contract and go from there.  I totally understand about spending wisely and all.  But the Bears got money that they HAVE to spend in order to meet a league wide spending baseline.  I would be very disappointed if Orlando Brown Jr. is not a Chicago Bear.

It was Gabriel who also said McGlincy didnt fit the Bears scheme.  I agree, change the scheme if you get a stud like that.

Letís not over hype Orlando Brown .  In December he had the most pressures allowed by any left tackle in the league to that point. He finished better the last few games.  Against Cincinnati in the AFC championship he had 7 pressures.I donít know the final stats but his reputation is a good but not great player.
Two teams have let him walk.

I would like to see what options there are first.

I'm in the camp that doesn't pursue Orlando Brown.  If you look at where Braxton Jones came from (Utah St.)  and what he was able to accomplish last year and his potential for growth I'm thinking the Bears look at signing a RT in free agency.

Depending on how the draft goes another tackle might be an early pick too.

I don't know that the Bears will target WR early in the draft.  I know WR is a need but D-line and O-line are bigger needs. 

What do you think about signing DJ Chark?  He's a FA from the Lions.  Big (6-4) and fast (sub 4.4 40).  Didn't have a great year stat-wise but he's put up 1000 yard pro bowl season in J'ville a few years ago.

He's 26 going on 27.  He looked good against the Bears in the 2nd meeting.

The Chicago Bears are trading the no.1 overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft to the Carolina Panthers according to NFL Networks Ian Rapoport.

The Bears will receive the no.9, no.61, a 2024 first-round pick, and a 2025-second round pick and star wide receiver DJ Moore.

Chi, its been about 6 years. 

But this breaking news actually has me excited.  So many holes to fill though.

Agree about the holes to fill, I just wish we didn't drop so far down. But, getting D J Moore should help immensely as long as we can get the o line straightened out. I'm still a bit of a cynic, been a Bears fan too long...
