Bears Pushed to Add Veteran WR Odell Beckham Jr.

Odell Beckham


WR Odell Beckham Jr. is still a free agent.

It’s no secret Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields could use a few weapons to throw to.

One of the primary storylines surrounding the team this offseason has been the lack of legitimate targets for Fields at the wide receiver position. The Bears have added several free agent receivers on one-year “prove it” deals, including Byron Pringle, N’Keal Harry and Equanimeous St. Brown, but there isn’t another proven WR currently on the roster other than third-year WR1 Darnell Mooney.

The Bears also started losing wideouts shortly after training camp kicked off on July 26, with Harry, Pringle and rookie third-round draft pick Velus Jones Jr. all sidelined with various ailments heading into the team’s first preseason game against the Kansas City Chiefs on August 13.

Considering Chicago’s current situation at WR, one analyst thinks the Bears should make a game-changing kind of move at the position.
