Entering the 2013 offseason, improving the tight end corps is an absolute must for the front office and coaching staff of the Chicago Bears.
Tight ends currently on the Bears roster include six-year veteran Kellen Davis, seventh-year pro Matt Spaeth and Kyle Adams, who has just three season of experience.
The corps collectively accumulated 29 receptions for 297 yards and three touchdowns, with only about half the passes thrown their way going for completions. These are stats that many NFL tight ends surpassed individually last season. For a passing game with so many other weapons, 10 yards per catch and less than two catches per game is unacceptable.
With Marc Trestman bringing in his offensive pedigree, it is almost certain that Chicago will be on the lookout for a play-making tight end this offseason. Here are five free agents and five draft prospects the Bears should keep a close eye on this offseason.
