The Bears are looking for a deep threat to match with Brandon Marshall, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Marshall caught 118 passes for 1,508 yards and 11 touchdowns for the Bears in 2012.
This is a good move for the Bears because they need to take the pressure off Brandon Marshall; the team needs another receiver on the outside who can force teams to single cover their star wideout.
If the Bears get another weapon, Jay Cutler’s statline will improve and the Bears will be more dangerous. The reason the Falcons were so good this past year is because the team had two matchup nightmare wideouts.
Head coach Marc Trestman was an assistant coach with the Saints a few years ago, so he knows the value of having a good receiving corps. The Bears have bigger needs to address this offseason, but grabbing a quick receiver shouldn’t be much of an issue.
