The Chicago Bears have been one of the most active teams during the NFL offseason, adding many key free agents.
They also made a surprising trade with the Carolina Panthers, surrendering the number one pick in the 2023 NFL Draft.
In this move, they acquired D.J. Moore, along with a handful of other picks as well.
It appears that the Bears aren’t done yet, as a recent report showcased yet another addition to this team.
According to Ian Rapoport, the Bears have recently acquired Dylan Cole, formerly of the Tennessee Titans.

Cole is a six-year NFL veteran, who spent the first few years of his career with the Houston Texans.
Although Cole went undrafted in 2017, he has been a valuable role player when he has been on the field.
In his career, Cole has 145 total tackles, two sacks, two interceptions, and one forced fumble.
He would likely have even more stats to his name, but he has battled injuries throughout his career.
During his rookie season, Cole injured his hamstring after making a marquee interception.
Since, he has suffered a dislocated wrist, torn an ACL, and has dealt with a back injury to boot.
The Bears have continued to add players in hopes of competing for the NFC North title, especially with the reports of Aaron Rodgers likely to leave the Green Bay Packers.
If healthy, Cole should be a valuable contributor in 2023, as his on-field efforts have yielded positive results.
Having a player who can contribute both on defense and on special teams is crucial, which is what Cole has historically achieved.NEXT: The Bears Land A Former Rival On Offense
