Over The Cap, which does an outstanding job in reporting on individual player contracts and each team’s salary cap, has managed to correctly predict several comp picks through the years. With the deadline having passed for free agents signed to no longer affect the comp pick formula, Over The Cap has finally shared their projections and they have the Chicago Bears in line for a 2020 fourth-round selection. You can read their basics and methodology for figuring comps out here (and I recommend you do), but the quick and dirty version is players signed away from each team are weighed against players signed by each team, to determine if a team is deemed worthy of receiving a bonus draft pick. But believe me White Bobby Massie Jerseys , it’s much more complicated than I wrote, so click the link for their version. With all the Bears’ free agency decisions this offseason being factored in, it’s losing safety Adrian Amos to the Green Bay Packers on a contract worth $8,500,000 per year that gives them that likely 4th-rounder. But the Bears also lost Bryce Callahan to the Denver Broncos on a big contract ($7M a year), so why don’t they get another comp pick for that?Because his deal is “cancelled out” by the free agent pick-ups the Bears made. Besides Callahan, the Bears also lost Josh Bellamy ($2.5M), Kevin White ($1.5M), and Eric Kush ($1.25M) Bobby Massie Jerseys 2019 , but they added free agents Ha-Ha Clinton-Dix ($3M), Cordarrelle Patterson ($5M), Mike Davis($2.975M), and Buster Skrine($5.5M).If the Bears do get a comp pick in 2020, it’ll snap a ten year streak of not getting one awarded to them. Also, if the comp pick is a fourth-rounder, that could essentially take the place of the fourth-round pick that Ryan Pace used to trade up for David Montgomery.You can check out all their projections by clicking here, but they have the Patriots and Seahawks down with four comp picks each, and the Vikings White Akiem Hicks Jerseys , Ravens, and Texans to each have three. The 2018 Chicago Bears stunned the NFL with an unlikely NFC North championship in the first year of coach Matt Nagy’s tenure and the second season of quarterback Mitchell Trubisky‘s career. With Trubisky now having a full season under his belt both as a starter and as the starter in Nagy’s system, the question is whether Trubisky (under Nagy’s guidance) can take the Bears to the next level.The Bears don’t get to the next level very often, and when they do they don’t hang around for long. Successful seasons are sporadic, followed by disappointment that often lasts for several years. For the Bears, consecutive playoff berths haven’t happened since 2005 and 2006. And the Bears are a long way from their 1984 through 1991 run, when they played in the postseason every year but one.Last year’s division title ended the longest playoff drought for the Bears since the merger, and Bears fans with a keen understanding of the team’s history will be bracing for a back slide. Whether that does or doesn’t happen may hinge in many respects on what Trubisky can or can’t do with the offense.The folks at Madden don’t believe in Trubisky, slapping him with a 75 rating. He’s clearly much better than that; he completed 66.6 percent of his passes Akiem Hicks Jerseys 2019 , he threw 24 touchdown passes against 12 interceptions, and he averaged 7.4 yards per attempt. He added 421 rushing yards, averaging 6.2 per run.Ultimately, the question for 2019 will be whether Trubisky is good enough to elevate the entire offense, to complement (and boost) the defense, and to play the foundation for not just another home playoff game but maybe a bye week — and maybe a postseason victory. Opposing defenses will have had a full year’s worth of film to digest and dissect; Nagy’s ability to counter that and Trubisky’s ability to execute that plan becomes the key.
