The Chicago Bears are just beginning what will undoubtedly be the most important offseason in franchise history to date. After another losing season in 2023-24, their 3rd in a row, the Bears showed signs of improvement - but it was not good enough. A decision was made to retain head coach Matt Eberflus, but most of the coaching staff below him will be different going into 2024.

The biggest headline of the offseason is who will be the quarterback for the Bears. General manager Ryan Poles finds himself sitting pretty with the number 1 overall pick in the upcoming draft, thanks to a brilliant trade with the Carolina Panthers last year. They will certainly either take a quarterback first overall or trade down and build around Justin Fields.

The second biggest headline is the contract negotiations between the Bears and Pro Bowl cornerback Jaylon Johnson. Johnson and the Bears both believe a deal will get done, but the two sides are still separated. The Bears can sign him to an extension, apply the franchise tag, or choose to let him go to free agency.

As you can imagine, social media is a buzz trying to get to the bottom of what the Bears are deciding to do, as well as fans giving their own two cents to the matters at hand. As tensions rise among fans, the Bears' social media team seems to be taking full advantage of creating more chaos.

Bears Posts Highlights of Fields, Johnson on Social Media

The Chicago Bears' social media team sent out a couple of posts this past weekend with highlight reels of both Fields and Johnson, the two biggest question marks of the offseason. Both videos show multiple clips of each player making great plays from this past season.

The awareness of the situation, as well as the timing and execution of these posts, are just incredible. The social team has basically added lighter fluid to an already burning bonfire. All this is going to do is generate more buzz and stir up some more drama into the offseason full of it.
