Poles and Eberflus have their work cut out for them this offseason when it comes to filling some holes and building up a couple of key position groups. Fortunately, both Poles and Eberflus come to Chicago with some strong connections around the league, as already evidenced by the staff they’re building.
Eberflus most recently came from the Indianapolis Colts, of course, as the team’s defensive coordinator. We have already talked in-depth about some defensive free agents who could follow Eberflus to Chicago.
Now, we move onto the offensive side of the ball.
Matt Eberflus could see some offensive free agents come to the Chicago Bears by way of Indianapolis.
While Eberflus is mostly a defensive guy, he’s also a highly-respected coach all-around. The relationships he built in Indianapolis could benefit the Bears.
The Colts’ offense was led last year by All Pro running back Jonathan Taylor, who nearly rushed that team into the postseason by himself. But, the remaining guys on offense are no slouches.
Indianapolis has a handful of free agents to make decisions on this offseason, and some of them would fit well in Chicago. There are three key names we could see the Bears pursue, coming from Indy, to play for Eberflus in Chicago.
