An 8-8 team with a poor defense will make some major moves, and a big chunk of those free agents will not return next season.
Should the Bears keep the same scheme next year, they will look to keep Henry Melton at a discounted rate due to his injury and draft another young defensive tackle. That still leaves questions at defensive end, safety and cornerback.
This is a list of five potential players the Bears could bring in if they want to make a big splash. We even threw in a wide receiver for good measure. The team can't afford all five players, but could realistically bring in two of these guys with some shuffling around. We are looking at you, Julius Peppers.
