Take a bow Ryan Pace.

Yes, it’s still the offseason.

Yes, we’ve been excited after his free agency signings in the past.

But this year is different. This year he want after the top guys, and this year he landed some top guys. In his previous three offseasons he had no intention on overpaying or hurting his cap flexibility while he rebuilt his roster. With his quarterback and head coach in place, the time was now to make a splash.

Allen Robinson was the number one wide out on the market, despite what some others may believe, and he chose the Chicago Bears.

Trey Burton may not have a lot of starting experience in the NFL, but his athleticism flashes when he’s on the field. He had a lot of teams inquiring about his services, but the Bears locked on early and he chose the Bears.

Taylor Gabriel wasn’t the Bears top choice for their third receiver, but once Albert Wilson signed with the Dolphins for $24 million over three years, the Bears moved to a similar player in Gabriel for four years and $26 million.

Back up quarterback Chase Daniel was just a no-brainer of a signing to aid in the install of head coach Matt Nagy’s offense.

Kicker has been the Bears bugaboo the last few years, so they didn’t mess around with veteran minimum salaried stop gaps, they grabbed Cody Parkey. I didn’t realize how good Parkey was until I looked up his stats.

It’s happening!
