On our latest Bear & Balanced Podcast, Jeff “JB” Berckes and I examined the legacy of the three high profile Chicago Bears to leave the franchise this offseason; Akiem Hicks, Khalil Mack, and Allen Robinson.

Hicks recently inked a deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, A-Rob signed with the Los Angeles Rams, and Mack was traded to the Los Angeles Chargers. All three players were a big part of Chicago’s 2018 NFC North Championship team, and all three left their mark on the franchise in their own way.

In order to determine the place of all three players in the Bears’ franchise history, we used WCG’s Top 100 Chicago Bears Player list that we compiled in 2019.
