12:20 am GMT, 9/6

After acquiring Khalil Mack from the Oakland Raiders, the Chicago Bears were finally legitimized as one of the best all around teams in the league. Last season, they proved exactly that point to the league as they allowed only 17.7 points per game while their offense generated 26.3 points per game. They’ll definitely look to retake the division once again though it certainly won’t be easy. The Minnesota Vikings still pose one of the best offenses in the league and Green Bay remains dangerous with future Hall of Fame quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

What role will HaHa Clinton-Dix play?

With good defenses, especially the best in the league, everyone wants your players in free agency. That’s what happened when free agency opened up and suitors began coming out from everywhere looking to snatch away key members of the Bears’ defensive unit. That’s exactly what happened to prized safety Adrian Amos who signed with the rival packers for a 4 year, $37 million deal. That left Chicago without their star safety and they would go out and sign a former Packer in Haha Clinton-Dix to fill that void.

While he played for the Redskins to end the year, Clinton-Dix was a key member of the Packers secondary for the majority of his career. He’ll now get a chance to return to the division he’s known for the better part of 5 seasons and face Green bay instead of playing alongside them. He’s got great hands and already has 14 interceptions for his career. Additionally, he’s a great coverage safety in the secondary and will be another solid veteran to add to the league’s top defense. 

Replacing Bryce Callahan with Buster Skrine

Another secondary player to depart in this year’s free agency is Bryce Callahan who inked a 3 year, $21 million contract with the Denver Broncos. Though he won’t be part of the dominant Chicago defense anymore, Callahan likely received significantly more money than the Bears were willing to offer. To replace Callahan, the Bears signed another cheaper alternative in Buster Skrine. The 3 year, $16.5 million contract saved them some more cap space as Chicago had many holes to fill with not too much money.

 

Skrine comes over after wrapping up a 4 year deal with the Jets and is likely to fill the spot left by Callahan. He’s a great coverage cornerback and has recorded at least one interception in every season of his career except two. The Bears’ most expensive free agent signing was apparently someone they’ve had an eye on for many seasons and his signing will make this sage come full circle. The only question that remains is whether Skrine will deliver as promised or begin declining in his age 30 season. 

Another year of improvement from Mitchell Trubisky

After doing just alright in his rookie season, Mitchell Trubisky took a huge step forward in his second year. He raised his completion percentage from 59.4% to 66.6% and his TD/INT ratio went from 7 to 7 to 24 to 12. While there’s still a lot of work to be done in terms of his decision making, there’s no doubt Trubisky is already on the right path. The great Chicago defense should only help alleviate the pressure from his shoulders and give him more leniency in his game. 

If everything looks right and goes well again, there’s a chance Trubisky could have his first 4,000 passing yard season. In only 14 games last year, he threw for 3,223 yards and over a 16 game span, that would’ve projected to 3,683 yards. The decision making also needs some work as the 24 TDs looks good but the 12 picks takes away from much of that. Still, Trubisky remains a decent dual threat Qb after rushing for 421 yards and 3 TDs. If he remains a threat through the air and on the ground, he could make for a dark horse MVP candidate.
