The Athletic’s Adam Jahns expects the Bears to explore adding a tight end both the draft and free agency, with free-agent options including Colts TE Eric Ebron and potentially Falcons TE Austin Hooper and Chargers TE Hunter Henry.
Jahns also writes the Bears don’t have an easy out in TE Trey Burton‘s contract until after 2020, so he likely is back next year while Chicago crosses its fingers that he can stay healthy.
