In the 2010 offseason, the Bears needed an impact defensive end who could rush the passer.

Luckily for them, All-Pro DE Julius Peppers from Carolina was a free agent. Jerry Angelo decided to make a huge splash by signing the free agent to a lucrative contract.

Two years later, the Bears have decided to part ways with Jerry Angelo.

However, new general manager Phil Emery, who used to be the Chief’s director of college scouting, may want to start off his tenure with the Bears by continuing to dip into the free agent pool.

While the Bears hired Emery to help out in the scouting department and the draft in April, it’s not like he won’t be asked to know what to look for this March.

The Bears have a few positions this offseason that they are going to want to upgrade, whether it be through free agency, trades or the draft.

This article will evaluate different options for Chicago in free agency that could fill team needs.

Just so there aren’t any surprises, the team needs that I have listed for Chicago are OL, backup QB, WR, DE and CB.

To find out who may be able to fill those needs for the Bears in free agency, read on.
