Week 15 saw the Chicago Bears drop their seventh game in a row, losing a close one to the Philadelphia Eagles.

Ultimately, Chicago went down by a score of 25-20 in a game where Justin Fields was once again spectacular at times.

At 3-11, Bears fans can definitively call it a season while still looking forward to seeing Fields close out the year that’s been his breakout campaign. Wins and losses haven’t mattered as much this year, as the Bears are looking forward to a big 2023 offseason.

Next spring, the Bears will have well over $100 million to spend on free agents. If Sunday was any hint at the type of talent they could bring in, the Bears would be wise to look at some of those Eagles coming up on the end of their contracts.

The Chicago Bears could sign Eagles defensive tackle Fletcher Cox in 2023

Fletcher Cox just turned 32 years old, but he continues to play at a high level and looks like he has a couple more seasons in him. After all, he’s been mostly healthy throughout his decade-long career, and fits a huge need for the Bears.

Cox is one of the better interior defensive linemen in the league, and has been for a while now. His ability to rush the passer from the inside is matched by few, but he’s also been great against the run for the majority of his career. It hasn’t been until the last two seasons that his run-stopping skills have declined just a bit.

Still, this is an area the Bears need to overhaul, and in a big way. They’ll likely add defensive linemen through the draft, at some point, but Cox is a great option for the Bears if they want a proven veteran, who stays healthy, and could give them a couple of solid seasons going forward.
