Why Chicago Bears Would Be Better off Keeping Nick Foles

When Bears GM Ryan Poles announced his target for free agency would be second and third phase players, it completely altered what anyone could have envisioned for the Bears this offseason.

It’s an obvious indication they intend to be as frugal as possible and the reason is there are too many roster spots to fill for them to spend a major amount on one position.

This impacts every position down to backup quarterback, and backup quarterback is no insignificant matter.

Laughing this position off as a minor issue shows short memory. The Bears wound up using three quarterbacks as starters last year and every time they changed quarterbacks injuries or COVID-19 caused it. They needed starts from a backup in every single season of the Matt Nagy coaching era.
