What We Learned About the Bears After the Start of Free Agency

The Chicago Bears once again got the free-agency process started with a bang by signing defensive end Lamarr Houston from the Oakland Raiders right away.

After the inking of Houston was announced, the Bears added safety Ryan Mundy and linebacker Jordan Senn, then doubled up at the safety position with M.D. Jennings Wednesday.

In all, the Bears came away with one definite starter, two players who will compete for a starting job and one special teams ace.

Not a bad haul in two days.

What the Bears didn't add was a franchise player or someone they can build their defense around. That will have to come via the draft, as most of the top-level free agents have already signed elsewhere.

As general manager Phil Emery made clear when he met with the media, the Bears have a lot of work left to do. They still have holes on their roster that need filling and plenty of questions regarding who will fill them.

This is a start. As you'll see in the following slides, we learned a bit more about the kinds of players the Bears are looking for, where they'll look and what positions still need work.
