Bears among favorites to sign five-time Pro Bowler

by - Senior Editor -

Several talented players remain unsigned as teams gear up for the 2024 season.

With available salary-cap space, the Chicago Bears are in a position to potentially bolster their roster with a veteran or two who can make a significant impact.

According to BetOnline, the Chicago Bears hold the second-best odds (+600) to sign veteran cornerback Stephon Gilmore for the 2024 season, just behind the Jacksonville Jaguars (+400).

The 33-year-old is a five-time Pro Bowler who won the NFL Defensive Player of the Year award in 2019.

In 2023, he started 17 games, registering two interceptions and breaking up 13 passes.

According to Spotrac, Gilmore's projected value is around $9 million per season, which is not cheap.

Despite the allure of adding Gilmore, the Bears' current roster already features a formidable secondary led by Jaylon Johnson, Tyrique Stevenson, and Kyler Gordon, among others.

This depth raises questions about whether Gilmore's addition is a necessity or a luxury for Chicago.
