Few teams in the NFL need help in the secondary the way the Chicago Bears do. After choosing to let All-Pro cornerback Kyle Fuller walk to save cap space, the Bears have had huge questions at the position.
Second-year standout Jaylon Johnson is fine, but behind him, the Bears have just four CBs on their roster, none of whom are consistent or reliable: Kindle Vildor, Duke Shelley, Artie Burns and Xavier Crawford.
Would the Bears benefit from adding an experienced three-time All-Pro to their secondary? Brent Sobieski of Bleacher Report thinks Richard Sherman is not only the best available free agent at the cornerback position, he thinks Sherman is the best available free agent, period.
“From an on-field perspective, Richard Sherman is the best available free agent at any position,” Sobieski wrote in his September 18 column. “Since turning 31 in 2019, Sherman has posted the second-highest coverage grade among all NFL cornerbacks, according to Pro Football Focus.”
