If the Chicago Bears being hard-pressed for cap space has harshened your offseason buzz, I’m here to tell you that it’s time to breathe easy.
That’s because the post-June 1 cuts are officially in the books. And the Bears, themselves, are breathing a bit easier now:
NFLPA Public Salary Cap report this morning has post-June 1st moves processed
Bears with $10,068,578 in space per the report
Falcons – $285K ($15.3M from Julio trade incoming? 👀)
Broncos – $19.377M (Ja'Wuan James not processed yet?)https://t.co/5H4DD2WD2U

The Bears now have $10,068578 in available salary cap space. The league arrives at this number just as Charles Leno Jr.’s post-June 1 cut becomes officially official. Best of luck to Leno in Washington. And best wishes to a Bears team that still needs to sign its draft picks. Once the ink dries on those deals, then perhaps we can start exploring deals to round out the team’s 2021 roster.
And by that, I mean the Bears should probably trade for Julio Jones now that some money has cleared. Right? I mean, shouldn’t Chicago want to put Jones on one side, Darnell Mooney on the other, and Allen Robinson II anywhere he wants to create a mismatch for
Andy Dalton Justin Fields to manipulate? Hey, now! A man can dream, right?
But seriously, maybe don’t let Moses Morgan leave his Halas Hall visit without a contract that makes him the team’s new starting right tackle. Just a thought…
