  Bears | Chicago talks with Pooka Williams    Sun Apr 11, 08:30 PM

Kansas RB Pooka Williams met with the Chicago Bears at the Kansas Pro Day.

Footballguys view: Williams is a smaller back with explosive playmaking ability...kind of like Tarik Cohen. He makes defenders look silly and can create space for himself with quickness and agility. Williams is likely to be a late-round pick in the 2021 NFL draft and a scatback at the pro level.

  Bears | Anthony Miller trade market heating up?    Wed Apr 7, 02:01 PM

Updating a previous report, Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller has been the subject of trade discussions with a 'number of teams' this offseason, according to sources via NFL Media's Ian Rapoport.

Footballguys view: Reports indicated Miller was the subject of trade talks about a month ago. Miller is a slot receiver with one year remaining on his rookie deal. He hasn't quite lived up to his potential yet in the pros, and he's only caught four touchdowns over the last two seasons after gathering in seven touchdowns as a rookie in 2018. A change of scenery could do him some good.

  Bears | Matt Nagy to resume calling plays    Fri Apr 2, 12:19 PM

Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy said Friday, April 2, that he'll resume calling the offensive plays in 2021 after relinquishing those duties to offensive coordinator Bill Lazor in the second half of the 2020 season.

Footballguys view: It's a make-or-break season for Nagy, so he's putting it back on his shoulders. The offense has floundered but now will feature QB Andy Dalton as the starter. We'll see if Nagy can find a way to get the offense on track the way they did under his guidance back in 2018.

  Bears | Andy Dalton reiterated the starter    Fri Apr 2, 11:36 AM

Chicago Bears QB Andy Dalton was confirmed the starting quarterback for 2021 by general manager Ryan Pace.

Footballguys view: The team has gone out of their way to declare that Dalton is the unquestioned starter. That's fine, as Nick Foles is better off as a backup. We could still see the Bears address the position and draft a young quarterback at the end of the month.

  Bears | Chicago talks with Mac Jones    Mon Mar 29, 03:00 PM

Alabama QB Mac Jones said he has talked with representatives from the Chicago Bears during the pre-draft process.

Footballguys view: Jones talked with every team at the Senior Bowl earlier this year. Reports indicate about 20 teams have talked to him after that. Jones is smart, accurate and has made quick decisions - and almost all good decisions - as a passer for the Crimson Tide. He's set to be a first-round pick and potential top-10 pick in the 2021 NFL draft.

  Bears | Artie Burns returns to Bears    Fri Mar 26, 03:29 PM

Free-agent CB Artie Burns (Bears) re-signed with the Chicago Bears Friday, March 26. He signed a one-year contract, but financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Burns missed 2020 with a torn ACL after the Bears signed him on a one-year prove it deal. The failed Steelers 2016 first round pick will get another chance in a Bears secondary that lost Kyle Fuller with only Desmond Trufant signed as a possible replacement.

  Bears | Andy Dalton announced as QB1    Wed Mar 24, 08:14 PM

Chicago Bears QB Andy Dalton was declared the starter Wednesday, March 24.

Footballguys view: Okay, well that didn't take long. Dalton was signed this offseason and the thought was he would compete with Nick Foles for the starting job. Instead, Dalton gets the crown. Foles might be on the trade block, and the Bears might add a quarterback at some point in the draft.

  Bears | Damien Williams headed to Chicago    Wed Mar 24, 01:12 PM

Free-agent RB Damien Williams (Chiefs) reportedly agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Chicago Bears on Wednesday, March 24. Financial terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed.

Footballguys view: It's an interesting landing spot for Williams and he's reunited with former Chiefs OC Matt Nagy. Fantasy GMs know this is bad for David Montgomery because he's certainly not going to get the volume of opportunities he had last season. In addition to Williams signing, Tarik Cohen is coming back healthy in 2021 and will serve as a primary pass-catching weapon out of the backfield.

  Bears | Chicago interested in Isaiah McKenzie     Sun Mar 21, 11:23 AM

The Chicago Bears are among the teams that have expressed interest in free-agent WR Isaiah McKenzie (Bills), according to a source.

Footballguys view: McKenzie is a weapon in the passing game who can be used on end-around plays as a runner too. He's got speed and quickness to make plays but his role would be limited within any offense that adds him.

  Bears | Andy Dalton to join Chicago    Tue Mar 16, 05:04 PM

Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent QB Andy Dalton plans to sign a one-year contract with the Chicago Bears worth $10 million, according to sources. He will be able to make an additional $3 million in incentives.

Footballguys view: The Bears wanted competition for Nick Foles. Dalton gives them just that and there's a chance he wins the starting job for Chicago. It's not an exciting signing for the team, especially since they are on the short list for Russell Wilson.

  Bears | Andy Dalton on his way to Chicago?    Mon Mar 15, 11:46 PM

Impending free-agent QB Andy Dalton (Cowboys) could be an option for the Chicago Bears, according to a league source via Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune.

Footballguys view: The Bears are going to try and get Russell Wilson, but that's a power move they might not be capable of. In case they can't get Wilson, Dalton would give them more depth at the position. He could compete with Nick Foles for the starting job in 2021.

  Bears | Allen Robinson gets tagged    Tue Mar 9, 02:44 PM

Updating previous reports, Chicago Bears WR Allen Robinson was given the franchise tag Tuesday, March 9, a source said.

Footballguys view: The franchise tag gives Robinson a one-year, $16.4 million deal. The team also has until July 15th to work out a long-term deal with the star receiver. The Bears are in the mix for a quarterback upgrade this offseason, but having Robinson there will help any passer they trot out there as the starter.

  Bears | Matt Nagy heaps praise on Darnell Mooney    Sat Mar 6, 06:15 PM

Chicago Bears WR Darnell Mooney received praise from head coach Matt Nagy in a recent interview with the Chicago Tribune following his rookie season. 'This kid is the real deal. I'm serious,' Nagy said of Mooney. 'You want to talk about an exciting player? I'm just so blown away at the things this kid does. ... It's exciting as a coach because he has a rare element of speed, combined with route-running, hands and passion. And commitment.' Nagy likened Mooney to both Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill and former Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson.

Footballguys view: Mooney has plenty of speed and can take the top off the defense. His 61 catches as a rookie in 2020 was just the tip of the iceberg in terms of what he can do at the pro level.

Chicago Bears WR Allen Robinson has totaled 131 receptions resulting in first downs since the start of the 2019 season, third most in the league according to Pro Football Focus data.

  Bears | Franchise tag an option for Allen Robinson    Tue Mar 2, 07:16 PM

'No firm decision on that yet, but we know we have it at our disposal. ... We want to keep our good players and Allen is a good player for us,' Pace said.

Footballguys view: This is not news as everyone under the sun has expected the Bears to use the tag on Robinson if they have to. The Bears are one of the teams on the short list of Russell Wilson's potential destinations, and having a guy like Robinson would make them more attractive as an offense. Stay tuned.

Washington Football Team QB Alex Smith, who is expected to be released at some point before the start of free agency, may potentially receive some interest from the Chicago Bears, according to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport.

Footballguys view: The Bears are in the mix for Seahawks QB Russell Wilson, as they're on his list of four teams he'd like to be traded to. If they don't get Wilson, then adding a guy like Smith makes sense. Nick Foles is still under contract and Mitchell Trubisky is set to be an unrestricted free agent when the new league year begins in two weeks.

  Bears | Jimmy Graham a cut candidate    Sat Feb 27, 12:31 PM

Chicago Bears TE Jimmy Graham is a prime candidate to be cut this offseason with such a move saving the Bears $7 million in cap space.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Graham did produce in 2020, finishing as the no.10 fantasy tight end (standard scoring) in the league. The Bears have second-year pro Cole Kmet to turn to if they move on from Graham. While not the same player he used to be, Graham proved last year that he's got something left in the tank.

  Bears | Allen Robinson open to possibilities    Thu Feb 18, 02:32 PM

Chicago Bears WR and pending unrestricted free agent Allen Robinson said on a recent SiriusXM NFL Radio interview that there's an open line of communication with the team, but acknowledged the two sides haven't spoken in 'some time.' Robinson, though, said he's preparing for various scenarios. 'At this point, I'd pretty much be open to everything on the table,' Robinson said on SiriusXM on Feb. 11. 'I'm not 100 percent sure what will happen in the next coming weeks as far as being a free agent and things like that, but as everything stands today, I definitely will open to everything on the table.'

Footballguys view: The Bears are screwing this up. Robinson is a rock-solid starter and star receiver in the league, but the Bears are hesitant to get a deal done. We know that contracts get done at deadlines, so with free agency looming we'll see if they can finally work something out. The window for franchise-tagging players opens up next week as well.
