Entering the third full week of NFL free agency, it’s apparent the Chicago Bears are selective and picky buyers, bucking the league wide trend of spending lavishly to add talent to the roster.

Chicago Bears sign OLB Pernell McPhee

McPhee was a risky signing this off-season. On one hand, he graded out as Pro Football Focus’ #2 ranked 3-4 outside linebacker in 2014 despite playing just 540 snaps. He was 2nd in the NFL behind only JJ Watt with 21 quarterback hits. He’s not a one year wonder as that type of player either as he graded out as Pro Football Focus’ 3rd ranked defensive tackle as a 5th round...
