Bears free agency rumor tracker: News, signings, cuts and more – Windy City Gridiron

The Chicago Bears aren’t going to be big players in the 2019 free agency frenzy, but with a couple in-house starters coming out of contract and a starter rumored to be on the trade block, we’re sure to get our fair share of rumors.

The early negotiation window will open at 11am today (Central time), so some agreed upon deals could be leaked at any time, but keep in mind nothing can be official until Wednesday, March 13 at 3:00 (Central) when the 2019 league year starts.

Getting awarded compensatory draft picks is something the Bears could have in mind when dealing with their own free agents and when deciding to add a street free agent or a player coming out of contract.

Safety Tashaun Gipson has been a popular rumored name for the Bears to replace Adrian Amos as the recently cut Jaguar would not count against the Bears in the comp pick formula.

The latest rumor making the rounds is that the Bears are looking into adding running back Mark Ingram. Saints beat reporter Sean Fazende has the Bears, Saints, Ravens, Packers and Lions as teams that plan to talk with the 29-year old.
