The Philadelphia Eagles' victory in Super Bowl LII can only mean one thing for the rest of the 31 NFL teams, including the Bears, looking to climb the same mountain: free agency is almost here!

Before the new league year starts in approximately a month, the Bears and Ryan Pace are going to have a lot of decisions to make regarding current players on their roster. Are guys like Josh Sitton and Bobby Massie really going to be cap casualties? Where does Kyle Fuller's future in Chicago stand as far as a long-term deal, a franchise tag, or whether he's staying at all?

To help break down this pending roster churn on the open market, Bears beat writer for The Athletic Chicago, Kevin Fishbain, hopped on the latest WCG Radio to make sense of where the team's priorities may lie. (BlogTalk individual link here.)
