Prior to Week 1 against the Green Bay Packers, the Chicago Bears could make a few key moves to help improve their roster.

With Sunday Night Football in Week 1 quickly approaching, the Chicago Bears are preparing to finalize a 53-man roster in hopes of an NFC North division run this season. That road begins against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field, on Sunday, September 9.

Prior to that game, though, the Bears will be amidst an NFL that sees the most moves made, within about a week’s span, out of any week in the year. Players will be cut. Players will then be signed. Players will be traded. Practice squads will be formed.

It is about to get crazy for a few days, and fans love it. We can’t wait for Week 1, especially with a chance to spoil the 100th home opener in Packers history. The Bears have been a trendy team over the course of the offseason, with many comparisons being drawn to last year’s Los Angeles Rams.

This season, though, the Bears are looking to set their own pace and walk their own journey. Before Week 1, though, there will be some moves to be made. The Bears will more than likely look for other players to sign off of other teams’ cuts and, just maybe, they could pull off a trade as well.

What are some moves that would improve the Bears as we speak? Well, here are five. A couple have been talked about consistently, while others not so much.
