According to the Athletic’s Adam Jahns, while a healthy season from DT Akiem Hicks would help, the Bears will need to improve their pass rush this offseason, as 2020 is the final year of LB Leonard Floyd‘s deal.
Jahns writes the Bears will be limited by their limited draft and cap flexibility, but could look at either signing a low-cost, younger pass rusher on a prove-it deal or using one of their second-round picks to replace Floyd in 2021.
Dave Birkett confirms that the Lions did add a voidable year to QB Matthew Stafford‘s contract as part of his restructured last month for cap purposes.
According to Birkett, Detroit added a club insurance policy to DE Trey Flowers contract.
Birkett mentions that WR Danny Amendola, who will be a free agent in March, seems like a “prime candidate” with the Lions.
Goessling reports that Vikings assistant GM George Paton does not have an interview set up with the Browns for their GM job at this moment. According to Goessling, Paton isn’t in the mix right now, but it’s possible they could speak later on in the process.
