Over the past couple of seasons, the Chicago Bears have added a lot of talent to their roster. They've hit a few home runs in the draft with players such as Jaquan Brisker, Cole Kmet, and Jaylon Johnson. They've also been aggressive in the trade market and free agency.

Since 2023, the Bears signed Tremaine Edmunds, T.J. Edwards, D'Andre Swift, and DeMarcus Walker. They traded for D.J. Moore, Montez Sweat, and Keenan Allen and ended up with Caleb Williams after deciding to trade their top pick in 2023.

With all the new talent on the roster, it won't be easy for some players to make the cut this year. It will also be tough for some veterans to land another deal in 2025 since there might be more affordable options on the bench or in the upcoming draft. Here, we look at three such players who might be in their final season with the Bears.

While the remainder of this list looks at players who will be hitting free agency next offseason, Nate Davis will still be under contract in 2025 — but he's far from a guaranteed spot.

Davis was signed to a three-year, $30 million deal in free agency but after three strong years as a starter for the Tennessee Titans, he took a step back during his first season in Chicago. Davis saw his PFF score drop from 70.6 to 52.9. Those rankings can be subjective but it was easy to see Davis struggle throughout the year.

He could be a release candidate if his play doesn't improve in 2024. If they decided to move on, Chicago would save $9.5 million while incurring a dead hit of $2 million.
