3. New York Giants

Another team that’s going through a significant rebuilding phase, the New York Giants have some intriguing veteran rentals that could interest the Bears. First up is 30-year old right guard Kevin Zeitler, who can be cut in 2021 to create $12 million dollars in cap space. Zeitler wouldn’t cost more than a day three draft pick. While the Bears get a short-term solution to shore up the offensive line, the Giants get an additional draft pick that goes towards rebuilding.

Considering how bad the Bears offensive line is right now, Zeitler would be an upgrade over what the team currently has at both left guard and right guard. Rashaad Coward and Germain Ifedi have continued to disappoint each week and if the Bears are going to salvage their season, adding someone like Zeitler is the least that General Manager Ryan Pace can do.

A second veteran, wider receiver Golden Tate, could be had for a conditional pick. With the way that Tate’s contract is structured, the Giants likely want to get out of it. At 32 years old, while Tate has zero upside left, he does have familiarity with quarterback Nick Foles from when the two were in Philadelphia during the 2018 season. Most forget that Tate is also the one who caught the game-winning touchdown from Foles at Soldier Field during the “Double Doink” playoff game in 2018.

Tate doesn’t have much left in the tank and the possibility of the Bears trading for him is low, however, he could the third wide receiver that the Bears need down the stretch because Anthony Miller has yet to realize his full potential.
