Post 2018 Cap Space
http://www.spotrac.com/nfl/chicago-bears/cap/

As it stands now, we're at 42 million in cap space, but that's not the whole story. Cutting these guys below is realistic and gives us a ton of money to spend.

Glennon-11 Million
Wheaton- 5 Million
Freeman- 3.5 Million
Young- 4.5 Million

Depending on the draft and free agency, we can also cut Massie (5.5 mill) or Cooper (4.5 mill)

Even before these cuts I think there are only like 8 team with more cap space then us. This is going to be a fun offseason.

Internally, who do we need to lock up Fuller? Meredith? Who else??

Glennon better be cut. what a waste of money he was I'd rather have Barkley backing up

Both McPhee and Sitton are in the 7-8 $M range. I'd rather gamble on one more year of Young if he can clear medical than gimpy McPhee. While Sitton has given the Bears some good play, I don't think he's worth that kind of money as a part-time player when you need stability on the inside of the line. Too ouchy, and there's too many other good OG's that can be had for less, let alone some possible draft picks.

I wonder if Pace trusts his evaluation on Wheaton and gives him one more shot with Nagy, with a haircut. He was snakebit last year and clearly wound up in Foxy's doghouse.

I was thinking the same thing Wulfy. We have nothing at WR, I'd bring Wheaton back and see if he plays in a proper offense if maybe he could produce as a deep threat for us. Maybe between him and White we get lucky and one busts out. Both seem like the WR types that KC would value. Not holding my breath, but also not sure what better options are out there?

I'd dump McPhee as others have suggested, which would make up for keeping Wheaton's salary.

We have such a great cap situation, I'd really like to see us lock up both Fuller and Prince to long term deals so we can have a cohesive group back there for the foreseeable future.

I wouldn’t do more than a year or two with Prince. He’s old, and just adequate as a starter. Any game could be his last decent start.

Fuller, obviously can play at a high level and is still young. I’d be okay with a deal for him, assuming he’s had a good
attitude with the regime and whatnot.

the Bears didn't rotate corners, and i didn't chart the plays, but most games it seemed like teams targeted Fuller more often

I look at KC's offense and one thing (well, more than one thing, but you get the point) they have that we don't is that one guy that can flat out fly like Tyreek Hill, who can take the top of a defense with his 4.2 speed and open the middle of the field for the tight ends. (PS Wheaton ran a 4.45 at the Combine - not slow, but not a burner)

To that point, I think Pace looks to bring in a burner - based on combine numbers, some FAs he might consider:

John Brown (Cardinals): 4.34
Paul Richardson (Seattle): 4.40
Donte Moncrief (Indy): 4.40

I know John Brown has battled Sickle Cell, which makes his everyday availability a question.

I'd like to get a watch on White's 40 time now, I have a hard time believing he can still run like he did at the combine...

But if he could...maybe that'd be a good role for him?

Wheaton ran a 4.45, that's only .05 off from those other guys...
