The Chicago Bears have been one of the busiest teams in the offseason so far. General manager Ryan Poles has been active in free agency and the trade market to try to turn the roster around to finally get back to winning ways.

Even though Bears fans have turned their attention to the 2024 NFL Draft, there are still a few veteran free agents available that could be major contributors to the Bears next season. Let's take a look.

Hunter Renfrow, WR

Only a year after his Pro Bowl campaign ended, the Las Vegas Raiders signed Hunter Renfrow to a two-year, $32 million contract extension. Nobody in the organization, including the wide receiver himself, could have envisioned that he would be released as a cap casualty before the contract expired.

Renfrow was due $13.7 million in 2024 and his release saved the Raiders $8.2 million against the salary cap. Considering how the last two seasons went for the 28-year-old, this move made plenty of sense for Las Vegas.

But for a team looking to add depth to their receiver corps, Renfrow is still a solid option, especially on a short, team-friendly deal.

A fifth-round pick out of Clemson in the 2019 NFL Draft, Renfrow has been a reliable slot target in his first three seasons in the league. In his Pro Bowl campaign in 2021, he registered 103 catches, 1,038 yards, and nine touchdowns. However, his role has been steadily reduced since then with injuries and the arrivals of Davante Adams and Jakobi Meyers.

The Bears already made their big move by trading for Keenan Allen this offseason but adding another competent veteran into the mix could make things even easier for the incoming rookie quarterback.
