3. Quarterback

Pace and Nagy have both expressed faith in Mitchell Trubisky. At the same time, each one of them seem to have their hesitations. The one conclusion we can all come to after hearing the offseason talk from both of them is this: Chicago will add someone to push Trubisky, one way or another.

However, free agency isn’t the route to take.

Guys like Jameis Winston, Teddy Bridgewater or Ryan Tannehill might be enticing in some respect. However, all will cost far too much for the Bears. The upper echelon free agent quarterbacks aren’t even an option for the Bears, so don’t even think about it.

Instead, Pace could opt for either the draft or a trade.

There are some intriguing prospects out there which could fall to the Bears — Jalen Hurts in the second or Anthony Gordon a tad later, potentially.

Although either one of those guys would be solid selections, I think the route to take is to trade for Derek Carr. That’s the one move which would put the Bears right back on the Super Bowl map. It’s easy to see how Carr would fit into Nagy’s scheme, and Jon Gruden is real close to going out and getting the guy he wants.

Whether the Raiders bring in Tom Brady or trade up to draft their quarterback of the future remains to be seen, but moving on from Carr seems likely.

Free agency is not the place for Chicago to grab a quarterback. It’s all about acquiring Carr or going after a prospect with lots of upside.
