Bears 'perfect spot' for standout defensive tackle Christian Wilkins

by -

Pro Football Focus outlined the "perfect" spot for the top free agents remaining, and the Chicago Bears were the ideal spot for Miami Dolphins defensive tackle Christian Wilkins.

"The Bears have a golden opportunity to add talent at quarterback, wide receiver and edge defender in the upcoming draft. With more than $56 million in cap space to work with, they should look to add to a defensive tackle group that ranked 29th in the NFL in overall grade in 2023," PFF's Dalton Wasserman said. "Justin Madubuike has been franchise-tagged in Baltimore, and it’s widely assumed that the Chiefs will find a way to keep Chris Jones. That leaves Miami’s Christian Wilkins, PFF’s seventh-ranked free agent, as the best available interior defender. Wilkins finished 2023 with the ninth-most pressures and fifth-most sacks at the position last season."

Wilkins has logged 355 combo tackles, 20.5 sacks and 43 more TFLs over 81 games as a pro.
