Next year, the Chicago Bears will have many decisions to make and could opt for a few rising options via free agency.

We are already looking ahead to the 2021 offseason? Well, in a way, yes. This year has been a struggle, as the Chicago Bears have lost four in a row and currently sit at 5-5. On the outside looking in at the playoff picture, the Bears have more current problems than possible solutions.

Regardless of how the rest of this season pans out, the Bears are in for quite the offseason. Head coach Matt Nagy appears to be coaching for his job at this stage, so the Bears could be looking at yet another new head coach. General manager Ryan Pace is, somehow, safe from being cut loose — at least according to recent reports.

As for the roster, Chicago has a ton of change brewing. The quarterback position is the number one priority, of course, as they will likely say goodbye to Mitchell Trubisky while Nick Foles has another two years left on his deal.

Allen Robinson is a free agent after this season, and while the Bears could use the franchise tag, he might be frustrated enough where he’ll make things difficult on them. The Bears will have to overhaul a couple of positions on the offensive line, plus fill in a couple of spots here and there, even on defense.

While we continue to watch the Bears this year, it will be important to keep an eye on impending free agents for 2021. There are many possibilities for the Bears, but a few key players have presented the Bears with a potentially great fit next spring.

To highlight just a handful, take a look at the following guys to keep watching as they would be great options for the Bears when free agency opens up next year.
