The Bears have plenty of cap space. And they’ve been using it.

The latest addition is defensive end DeMarcus Walker. His agency has announced that he’ll signing a three-year deal worth $7 million annually with the Bears.

Walker, a second-round pick of the Broncos in 2017, spent four years in Denver, one in Houston, and one in Tennessee.

He had a career-high seven sacks in 2022, appearing in 17 games with six starts.

Chicago’s day-one haul includes linebacker T.J. Edwards, linebacker Tremaine Edmunds, and guard Nate Davis.

  1. They also have plenty of cap space AND plenty of player capital to make a move for Lamar.

  2. I’ve generally been on board with Poles’ plan, with a few exceptions. Last year, not signing any WR in free agency (when they would be a lot better than this year), and not getting enough help in the trenches. Some O-line help has been coming this offseason, but the D-line was the worst in the league last year. You can’t draft a D-line in a single season. It would be nice to have a few pieces to build around in the draft.

  3. The Bears and the Lions may be the two teams to beat in the NFC North this season. Who’da thunk?

  4. I love what Poles is doing. No, he hasn’t gotten that LT or high priced DT, but he’s grabbed solid, start-of-their-prime players at reasonable market cost. He’s building a core with these additions and the draft. We’ll be more competitive with these moves. In 2024, we could be challenging for the conference. Gonna have to wait and see.

  5. The more cap ya got the more they make you overpay, 7m annually for Walker seems high

  6. So far the offense side of the ball get’s a C- and that’s being nice he needs two Tackles one should be Paris Johnson a tall gifted athletic LT that is so desperately needed. A new RB in 3rd makes all the sense in the world it should be Pitt. Israel Abanikanda a nice sized no nonsense tough guy who’d pick up the tough yards along with big gains he led the country in rushing TD’s some say 4th rd why take the chance he’s still a steal in the 3rd. Finsh FA with another versatile veteran OL and a speedy WR in the draft like Zay Flowers who compares very well to Terry McLaurin.
