29. Chicago Bears
The Chicago Bears have finished at the bottom of the NFC North three seasons in a row, but at least the team made the right decisions with moving on from Jay Cutler and Alshon Jeffery to help earn a fresh start. While Cutler was recently released by the team after eight seasons, the Bears were wise to save the money by not using the franchise tag on Jeffery for the second year in a row after only finding the end zone twice all of last season.
Speaking of spending money, it’s amazing to see what the team was willing to pay an inexperienced quarterback like Mike Glennon, but the former Tampa Bay Buccaneers backup seems to be making all of the right moves early on. When hearing the approach Glennon is already taking by getting to know the plays and his new teammates, maybe Chicago sees something special in their new quarterback that nobody else realizes.
On the other side of the football, the defense received a major upgrade with the additions of Prince Amukamara and Marcus Cooper at cornerback. After disappointing finishes over the last three seasons, the Bears could end up being one of the surprise teams to keep an eye on in the NFC when looking at all of their key moves so far before the draft.
