The NFL offseason is about to get as exciting as it has all year thus far. With the deadline on franchise tags coming Tuesday, and next Monday beginning the legal tampering period, all eyes will be on new Chicago Bears general manager Ryan Poles.

The Bears have holes, no doubt, and limited draft capital to work with this year.

One of the ways they could look to add talent is, of course, free agency. However, before free agency kicks off, there should be a few players traded or released, making them early free agents.

Recently, Spotrac tweeted out a list of candidates which are currently on the trade block and whom could also be released. There are quite a few notable names there, but a lot of receivers — and that position catches any Bears fan’s attention right now. If these rumors are true, we could see a lot of movement soon.

There are five key wide receivers rumored to be traded or released, and the Chicago Bears should be in on most of them.

Getting Justin Fields the necessary weaponry is priority number one this offseason — arguably tied with getting him some protection up front, also.

If the Bears have the ability to add a notable receiver before free agency and the draft, then they have to jump at the opportunity. This last week’s Combine revealed plenty of names to watch for the Bears to add in the upcoming draft, but they have to add more than just a couple receivers.

Should Poles want to make a deal, he should look at these five receivers who are in the rumors as of late. If the price is right, the Bears need to make it happen.
