The Bears may not be in the big game themselves, but there are a handful of players that can be on their radar this offseason.

The Bears will be on their couches just like us watching the Super Bowl this weekend. The future is looking better than it has in some time, however. A pair of top-ten picks and the league's eighth best cap space has the Bears in a prime spot to add a plethora of talent to a team that finished 7-10 last season.

Before we get to the draft and arguing about what they should do with the No. 1 and 9 overall selections, we have the free agency period. The Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers both will have their own decisions on free agents after the Super Bowl, but for now let's take a look at five players who could potentially be wearing blue and orange next season.

1. Chase Young

Can we see a reunion of Montez Sweat and Chase Young? The Bears traded for Sweat earlier in the season while the 49ers traded for Young. Injury concerns have been a thing with Young for a while now, as well as his effort being questioned.

When healthy and trying, Young is still one of the better pass rushers in the league. He has 7.5 sacks on the year with the Commanders and 49ers. It will be interesting to see what the market is for him, but if the price isn't out of this world then he may be an option to look at for the Bears.
