25 best remaining free agents the Bears should target after NFL draft

·2 min read

The 2022 NFL draft is in the books, and the Chicago Bears have welcomed 11 new rookies to the roster.

Now, the third wave of free agency is underway, where general manager Ryan Poles has an opportunity to address some positions that still need attention following the draft, including wide receiver, linebacker and defensive line.

Also, beginning this week, all free agency signings will no longer count against the compensatory formula. Unfortunately, Chicago isn’t slated to have any compensatory picks in 2023.

Here’s a look at some of the best available free agents the Bears could target in this third wave of free agency:
