How about the Bears do some contract restructuring and pick up Vonn Bell?
OverTheCap has the Bears ~$3.5M in the hole for cap space with the new acquisitions....there's still a couple of updates that need to be done....but there's not THAT much that can be done....they're just pushing it down the line....

Here are the Bears continuing needs in order of urgency....

Offensive line - need at the very least a startable guard AND tackle.
Starting CB - We cut Prince....still need someone to replace him...Skrine is a slot corner at best.
Safety - We need a starting safety and depth. Everyone except Jackson is a FA.
Inside linebacker depth - Lost Kwit and Pierre-Louis, need to bolster that position
Wide receiver depth - maybe Ridley comes out of hiding or we find out what some scouts were yelling, that he's not a good receiver...
D-line and OLB depth - Lost Williams to Detroit and Lynch is a FA, Floyd cut.

After all the moves, looks like the Bears have around $7.4M in cap space, would have to see how much they need for the draft, but they are still pretty tight. They restructured Whitehairs contract to free up come space.

Also, it’s being reported that the Bears were really never that interested in Cam because of injury concerns

Former 2016 1st round pick (#25), Artie Burns, comes to Chicago. He was a bust in Pitt. playing only 67 snaps last year. Bears are taking a chance a new team turns him around. Sounds like it's a 1 year, prove it deal.

Just adding depth, he is nothing but a back up

LB Barkevious Mingo to the Bears. $1.187 mil. Another special teamer. Maybe some back up work behind Mack and Quinn.
They gave him like $900K in guaranteed money...which seems really dumb, but not surprising given the rest of Pace's decisions this season

Bears add another 1st rounder who was a bust for Seattle, OT, Germain Ifedi. I think he was tied with Leno for 5th most penalties last year? Seattle did not pick up his 5th year option. Ifedi has played both Guard and Tackle. He will compete for Long's vacant RG spot.

David Carr is out of his goddamn mind...

Nick Foles, Chicago Bears

Old team: Jacksonville Jaguars

Bears fans have wondered for months now: Will Mitchell Trubisky be our starting quarterback in 2020? Well, I think you have your answer. Trubisky will likely take a backseat to Super Bowl LII MVP Nick Foles. Trubisky has struggled going through his reads and getting the ball to the open guy, while Foles excels at ripping through his progressions to find the right target. The veteran quarterback has done that for so long that I'm convinced he could stay in quarantine for six months, roll out of bed and run Matt Nagy's offense well.

I realize Foles is coming off an injury-abbreviated nightmare year with the Jaguars, but that's a thing of the past. In Chicago, he will have better offensive weapons and a ferocious defense that will routinely provide good field position. Right now, I see Foles having one of his best seasons.

2020 production: 65 percent completion rate, 4,000 pass yards, 28 TDs, 5 INTs.

At this point Pace must realize he’s toast and seems to be screwing the team over for years

Ifedi got creamed by Mack when the Bears played Seattle. His first couple years were awful, his last two slightly better. Still not good enough for Seattle to keep him.

LOL He's thinking "I have no money to spend, few draft picks and a lot of holes to fill."
But HE’S the one that traded away all the picks! And this isn’t even about Mack, how many did he trade to move up in the draft every single time he sees a small school project that catches his eye

Yeah, the big mistake was Trubisky. WTH was Pace thinking? He didn't need to move up.

Imagine in a perfect, Bears bizarro land Trubisky had been Mahomes. That thought blows my mind. Would we have won this year's SuperBowl?

Pace probably drifted off to sleep every night thinking that would happen before he picked Trubisky. Draft day came and he couldn't wait.
