NFL Rumors: Chicago Bears looking to draft help at safety

The Chicago Bears went out and signed some safety help but it appears the team is not done adding depth or talent to the position. While Ryan Mundy was brought in this offseason via free agency to compete for the safety job, Michael C. Wright from ESPNChicago notes that the team will look to the Draft this May to find more help and a possible long-term solution.

Per ESPN.com:

Mundy seems to be the only player the Bears have brought in to compete for a starting job. So that leads me to believe the Bears aren’t done adding at the position. I could still see the club looking to grab another safety in free agency or the NFL draft.

This makes a lot of sense considering the Bears are weak s can be at the safety position and really didn’t spend big bucks in free agency to land at top replacement like T.J. Ward or Jairus Byrd. Still, even tough they didn’t break the bank to find help at safety, the draft should provide a cheaper option with plenty of talent and upside to make the Bears happy they pinched pennies and skipped signing a top safety.
