If the Bears are going to cast their lot with quarterback Mike Glennon, as has become the conventional wisdom, they’re going to have to find him some weapons in the passing game.
They may be looking within their own division.
According to Alex Marvez of the Sporting News, the Bears are expected to make a run at Vikings wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson.
The former first-round pick has become an All-Pro kick returner, but has failed to deliver on his big-play potential as a receiver. He caught 52 passes last year, but averaged just 8.7 yards per reception.
The Bears have been working to retain Alshon Jeffery, but they still need multiple weapons if they’re going to build around Glennon.
