2. Fix the QB situation: Carry three if necessary

At first glance, this sounds ridiculous. I understand. But, the Bears may need to keep a third roster spot open on the quarterback depth chart next year. This team’s core is ready to compete for a championship, but the most glaring issue has been the regression of Mitchell Trubisky.

Obviously, Mitchell Trubisky will be back. But, will the Bears go out of their way to sign a free agent to come in and compete? Some of the notable names whom could become available are: Marcus Mariota, Ryan Tannehill, Jameis Winston, Philip Rivers and Teddy Bridgewater.

A couple of those will get much more than the others, in terms of money. Keep that in mind.

But, if the Bears end up bringing in a free agent quarterback, even on a 1-year deal, I would argue that they should still draft someone. Now, whether they draft one high is another question.

I am all aboard the Jalen Hurts train, which many disagree with — and that’s okay. The one thing I hope many Bears fans can agree with is this: Chicago needs to draft a quarterback. They have to fix the quarterback problem, because whether or not you want to admit it, Trubisky isn’t the long-term answer.

Looking at the draft class, there are tons of options. The Bears could end up getting Hurts or Jordan Love (risky) in the second round, but also guys like Sam Ehlinger or Anthony Gordon later on.

Keeping three quarterbacks was once the way to go, but has since become less popular. Matt Nagy needs to make it a ‘thing’ again in 2020.
