Jimmy Garoppolo isn’t counting himself out just yet. On Friday, the injured San Francisco 49ers quarterback told The Athletic “that’s still up in the air,” regarding a return for the Super Bowl if San Francisco beats the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday in the NFC Championship. After taking over for Trey Lance following his season-ending right ankle injury in Week 2, Garoppolo, 31, fractured his left foot in Week 13 against the Miami Dolphins. Last week, he returned to practice for rehab work, but he’s not yet ready to return this week to face the Eagles. see also nfl playbook How the NFL’s ‘Mr. Irrelevant’ could...
If you greeted the occasion of Art Rooney’s annual season-ending “State of the Steelers” address with optimism that the owner would perhaps echo frustrations held widely around town about the team’s sixth-straight season without a playoff win, my apologies. But really, you should have known better.
In the eyes of one ESPN analyst, the Bears hold an ineffable amount of power by owning the rights to the No. 1 pick in the 2023 NFL draft. Specifically, he believes teams hungry for a quarterback will do whatever it takes to trade with the Bears for the first selection.
Jaiden Fields, the sister of Bears quarterback Justin Fields, agreed to a Name, Image and Likeness (NIL) deal with WWE as part of their "Next in Line" program. Jaiden, a redshirt junior softball player at Georgia, signed along with 14 other athletes as part of the third class to collaborate with WWE's program.
We spent almost the entire 2022 season discussing the critical offseason ahead for general manager Ryan Poles and the Bears. After a 3-14 campaign, it's finally here. The Bears own the No. 1 overall pick and have over $100 million in salary cap to spend. There should be no question that the roster around quarterback Justin Fields will have more talent in 2023.
No upcoming Bears free agent has been discussed more in recent weeks than David Montgomery. Should the Bears re-sign him? Shell out whatever it takes to bring in Saquon Barkley? Or avoid the position completely in free agency to move ahead with Khalil Herbert and an incoming rookie?. Amid all...
One of the prizes in the Bears' preconceived war chest included over $100 million in cap space to freely use in free agency this offseason. While still projected to have the most cap space in the league, Over the Cap projects the Bears' budget around $92 million for the future.
The Bears earned the No. 1 pick in the upcoming NFL draft by way of recording the worst record in the NFL last season. Some outsiders took this information an extra step past a bona fide roster upgrade, suggesting the front office trades Justin Fields this offseason to draft a quarterback with the first selection.
The 2023 NFL Draft is still three months away, but there's been plenty of discussion in the last few weeks about what the Chicago Bears should do with the No. 1 overall pick. Should they stay put and draft a defensive stud? Do they trade down and collect a handful of extra picks? Or, in a much more remote scenario, do they restart completely and draft another new quarterback to replace Justin Fields? All options are on the table.
Not sure if you’ve heard, but the Bears are projected to have over $115 million in cap space this offseason. That’s enough purchasing power for Ryan Poles to continue his overhaul of the Bears roster in earnest. Considering the team finished the season on a 10-game losing streak to land on a 3-14 record, they’ll need it. Practically every position on the depth chart will need to be addressed too, so if you’re playing Fantasy GM at home, feel free to dream up marquee signings anywhere on the field. If you’re looking to scout any of the potential signees, here’s a watch guide for the AFC and NFC Championship games.
The NFL playoffs are full of examples of what teams like the Bears hope to one day become. The four teams playing on championship Sunday are the standard for excellence in the NFL and models for the other 28 teams to try and emulate. But the playoffs offer important lessons...
Justin Fields was already named ESPN’s Fantasy Breakout Player of the Year, and the fantasy football accolades keep coming.

Bears general manager Ryan Poles is about to walk into a critical offseason with a heavy wallet and a lot of holes to fill. The Bears will have over $100 million in salary cap room this offseason. But free agency in the NFL isn't like the NBA or MLB. Great players rarely make it to the open market, and fortunes rarely are changed by expensive spending sprees.
This offseason, David Montgomery is set to become a free agent for the first time in his career. He will become an unrestricted free agent, with a likely asking price north of $10 million per year. How should the Bears go about assembling their backfield? Should they bring back Montgomery?
The Chicago Bears enter the offseason in an enviable position for a rebuilding franchise. They have a potential star and franchise quarterback in Justin Fields on a rookie contract. They have more cap space than any team in the NFL, by a considerable margin. And they have the No. 1 overall draft pick.
While Justin Fields made strides this year to becoming an elite quarterback, he has ground to cover still. Some believe he has more than usual development to make up, and that trading him to have the opportunity to take a quarterback with the No. 1 pick in the upcoming NFL draft would suit the Bears better than Fields.
