Terrell Owens would be a low risk investment who the Bears do not have to trade valuable players for and can sign to a one-year contract.
He will play for a smaller deal and possibly provide the Bears with a true difference maker at receiver the team has been lacking for years.
Owens still played at a high level the last few years and has been training hard this offseason to get healthy.
The Bears offense has been so abysmal in both the passing and running game that bringing in a player of Owens' caliber would show the league Chicago is not messing around.
Chicago has nothing to lose by signing Owens, as Matt Forte is the top receiver. Right now, the Bears do not have an in-house solution to the problem.
By bringing the legendary receiver to Chicago, Owens could be a possible solution to get the team's passing attack back to respectability.
