The Chicago Bears added two new starters to the defensive line's edges this offseason, but the pass rush still has a long way to go before it becomes truly formidable.
In 2022, Chicago had a league-low 20 sacks, led by Jaquan Brisker from the safety position, who had four.
General manager Ryan Poles addressed the issue by first bringing in DeMarcus Walker and then signing Yannick Ngakoue.
Last season, the two combined for 16.5 sacks and will cost the Bears a total of $18.25 million in 2022.
Dominique Robinson and Rasheem Green make up Chicago's second-string defensive line. Last year, they combined for only five sacks.
Simply said, the Bears could still benefit from some edge help. On Monday, September 4, Bleacher Report's Jake Rill suggested that the team bring veteran Carlos Dunlap into the mix to enhance sack productivity.
While the Bears have a lot of money to spend, Dunlap fills a need on defense and can probably be gotten for a good price.
The two-time Pro Bowler most recently of the Kansas City Chiefs won a Super Bowl last season on a one-year, $3 million contract.
