Hanie, an unrestricted free agent, will be free to sign with any NFL team when free agency begins on March 13. "Each year you learn something," Smith said last month.

When Chicago Bears fans are asked the top priority in the upcoming draft and free agency, their responses are usually wide receiver, offensive line, and secondary.
