1. The Chicago Bears should re-sign Jakeem Grant

No matter what the future holds for Tarik Cohen, the Bears should recognize they have found their return specialist for years to come. Jakeem Grant came to the Bears by way of a sixth rounder back to the Miami Dolphins, and that trade paid huge dividends for the Bears.

Grant was named an All Pro this past season and also proved he has plenty to offer on offense as well. When he was given opportunities to possess the ball on offense, Grant was electric.

The Bears will have a depleted wide receiver room once Allen Robinson leaves, and they need to at least bring back one of the only sure things in that room. Grant is one of those offensive weapon types, and should be used as such. But, for years the Bears had been without a kick returner until they found Cordarrelle Patterson. Now, Grant has seamlessly replaced Patterson.

The Bears have to re-sign Grant. He should be a priority, especially because they traded away draft capital to get him.
