As a Bears fan, the last 5 years have been absolutely brutal. If I were Ryan Pace, the GM, here's how I'd fix the team:

1. Head Coach:

FIRE: John Fox, Dowell Loggains, and Jeff Rodgers

HIRE: JIM HARBAUGH Psych he's staying at Michigan

In that case, Hire Matt Nagey or Pete Carmichael or Mike Shula as the HC

COnvince Vic Fangio to stay as the DC

Hire John Deflippo as the OC

Hire some great college guy as the ST Coordinator

Hire Devin Hester as the return game coordinator, because why the hell not?

Convince Stan Drayton and Clint Hurtt to return

Try to get another Mike Groh type of guy, Rams passing game coordinator

2. Cuts/Resignings:

CUT: Mike Glennon, Markus Wheaton, Michael Burton, Taquan Mizzell

Restructure: Pernell Mcphee, Dion Sims, Quintin Demps, Marcus Cooper

Other trade/cut candidates: The above, Kevin White, Willie Young


First, at this point, after that, according to, we would have $68 million in cap space. We'd likely need 8 million for the draft, so we are down to $60 million.

Prince Amukamara: 3 years, $25 million deal

Kyle Fuller: 1 year, $6 million deal (similar to Morris Claiborne last year)

Zach Miller: 2 years, $7 million deal

Dontrelle Inman: 2 years, $8 million deal

Kendall Wright: 2 years, $10 million deal

Sherrick McManis: 3 years, $7.5 million deal

Christian Jones: 3 years, $10 million deal, team option after both years

Cameron Meredith: RFA 2nd round tender, 2.2 Million

Get any LS

RFA tender 2nd round Bryce Callahan

Pat O'donell 2 years, $3 million deal

Josh Bellamy 1 year, 850k

Lamarr Houston 1 year, $1m

John Timu 1 year, 750k

Sam Acho 1 year, $1 million

Maybe Benny Cunningham, but unlikely

So I'll just have to designate Marcus Cooper as a June 1st cut, and cut Quintin Demps, and trade Kevin White and now we're up to 35 million

4. Free Agency:


WR Jarvis Landry 3 years, $25 million deal             Other WR: Allen Robinson, terelle Pryor, Davante Adams, Tyrell Williams

WR Josh Gordon 2 years, $12 million deal

OT Gary Gilliam 1 year, $1 million deal

DE Muhammad Wilkerson, 3 years, $27 million deal

SS Eric Reid 4 years, $30 million deal

OLB Kevin Pierre-Louis, 1 year, $2 million deal

K Sturgis 1 year, $1.5 million deal

Other5. DRAFT:

1st Round: Select Arden Key, OLB, LSU

2nd Round: Trade down, gain a pick at end of 3rd, select Simmie Cobbs Jr. WR, Indiana

3rd Round: Select Iman Marshall, CB, USC

4th Round: 1st: Select Harrison Phillips, DT, Stanford 2nd: Select Justin Jackson, RB, Northwestern

5th Round: Select Godwin Igwebuike, S, Northwestern

6th Round: Select JT Barrett, QB, Ohio State

7th Round: No pick

6. Final Roster/PS:

QB: Trubisky, Barrett, Veteran

RB: Howard, Cohen, Jackson, Cunningham/Carey

WR: 2 FA's, Meredith, Cobbs, Inman, Wright, Bellamy

TE: Shaheen, Miller, Sims
