The Chicago Bears come into the 2023 offseason with plenty of money to burn.
With close to $100 million in cap space, the team can make major improvements this year.
While they can’t afford mistakes in free agency, they can afford some big contracts.
If the Bears want to rebuild, they should target two particular free agents who would be perfect fits for the team.
Anthony Walker Jr.
Since the Bears sent Roquan Smith to the Baltimore Ravens, they have lacked a strong linebacker on defense.
With the linebacker being a key signal caller on defense, the Bears need someone who can replace Smith and his duties.
Signing Anthony Walker Jr. gives the team a solid linebacker who can call defensive plays.
While injuries took him away from calling plays for the Cleveland Browns, a healthy 2023 can give him new life in Chicago.

Having a veteran signal caller like Walker on defense will help the Bears defense reclaim some of its lost glory.
While fans love David Montgomery and want him to return in 2023, the Bears should get Josh Jacobs.
Jacobs is a solid running back and can plow through defenders.
With the Bears needing an aggressive and powerful running back, Jacobs fits both requirements.
This past season with the Las Vegas Raiders saw him becoming the NFL’s leading rusher.
Fans also saw how he ran over defenders in 2022 to become that leading rusher.
With him showing no fear against defenders, he’s the perfect fit for a Bears team who ran for 3,014 yards this past season.NEXT: 2 Offseason Moves The Bears Need To Make
