Wide Receiver Eli Rogers

As I have talked about extensively here for a while, the Bears may need a fourth or fifth receiver. Eli Rogers could fill that void, depending on what Nagy and Pace are looking for. Rogers has decent speed (ran a 4.57 40-yard dash prior to the draft in 2015) and could serve as depth in the slot behind Anthony Miller.

Punter Jordan Berry

The Bears should end up moving on from Pat O’Donnell as their starting punter, and while Jordan Berry isn’t an enormous upgrade, he’d be worth bringing in. Last season, Berry’s average was right around O’Donnell’s at 43.7 yards per punt. However, Berry saw less of his punts actually returned (16 for Berry versus 20 for O’Donnell) and less of them ended in a touchback (four for Berry versus O’Donnell’s seven).

Inside Linebacker L.J. Fort

The Bears are set at all four starting linebackers, but depth may become an issue depending on how long they keep Nick Kwiatkoski. L.J. Fort would be a nice addition to the depth behind both Danny Trevathan and Roquan Smith.

Last season, he was one of the Steelers’ standout players on special teams and still contributed over 300 snaps on defense, coming up with 11 pressures and a sack on the year.
