Report: Bears’ Interest in CB A.J. Bouye is “Very Real”

Chicago Bears

Having missed out on Stephon Gilmore earlier today, the Chicago Bears may actually be more focused on the guy who many see as the top cornerback on the free agent market: breakout Texans corner A.J. Bouye.

Other reports have suggested that one of those AFC South clubs – perhaps the Titans or Jaguars – have the inside track on Bouye, but the Bears have an obvious need. Although the draft is deep in the secondary, the Bears would be best served not having to rely exclusively on that route for an upgrade (especially considering how many other areas the Bears need to address via the draft).

This is a situation where money is going to talk, and the Bears have among the most cap room available in the league.  We’ll keep tabs.
