3 Best Offseason Moves From the Chicago Bears
The Chicago Bears had a disappointing 2019 season after a great 2018. Both Mitchell Trubisky and their defense took steps back, and that was reflected in their record. Heading into the offseason, Chicago had a few areas in free agency they really wanted to address.
With that in mind, let's take a look at the three best offseason moves for the Bears.
1. Singing Robert Quinn
After former first-round pick Leonard Floyd proved to be a disappointment in Chicago, the Bears went big-game hunting in free agency for a pass rusher, and they landed on Robert Quinn, giving him a massive 5-year, $70 million contract. Quinn has four seasons of double-digit sacks under his belt, including a 11.5-sack performance with the Dallas Cowboys last season. With Quinn, the Bears create a scary pass-rushing group that also includes Khalil Mack and Akiem Hicks.
2. Re-Signing Danny Trevathan
Danny Trevathan might be entering his age-30 season, but he is a great player and an even better leader on this formidable Bears defense. When Trevathan missed games last year, it was clear the defense suffered because of it. With a defense that played so well with many of the same players in 2018, some of the best moves are keeping the key pieces guys in place, and Trevathan certainly fits the bill.
3. Signing Germain Ifedi
Germain Ifedi isn't a superstar offensive lineman, but following the retirement of Kyle Long, the Bears have a big hole at right guard. They also have a need at right tackle after Cornelius Lucas departed in free agency. Ifedi is a former first-round pick and has proven the versatility to play at both offensive line positions on the right side. If they can turn Ifedi into a starter at either spot, then this will be a great value move for the Bears.
