NFL Free Agency: NFC North

Steve Hamann

Another week, another round of free agency predictions. Last week, we went over who I thought the biggest home-run signings for the entire NFC East would be. We are sticking to the same conference this week and predicting the NFC North’s top free-agent signings. Here are my top signings for every team, including my favorite team, the Chicago Bears.

Nick Easton C – Minnesota Vikings

The Vikings’ choice may have been the most challenging selection for the entire division. The Vikings are an exceptionally well-rounded team with young talent sprinkled throughout their lineup. Along with their on-field talent, the Vikings are hurting on cap space. This limited cap space will make sure the Vikings aren’t big spenders this free agency. The Vikings have proven that their offense will be run-centric, with Dalvin Cook leading the charge. Who better to bring back to Minnesota than Center Nick Easton? Joe Thuney is my top-ranked guard, but the limited cap space will likely make it challenging for Minnesota. Protect Kirk and Cook for a few more years; sign the big man!

Kenny Golladay WR – Detroit Lions

The Lions have struggled to reach any deal with Golladay this far into the off-season, making me a little more nervous for this to happen. After trading Matthew Stafford for Jared Goff earlier this offseason, the Lions could re-sign the top free-agent wide receiver. Standing at 6’4″, Golladay provides a reliable target for Goff and gives the young Lions Offense a star for years to come. Remove 2020, where Golladay could not stay healthy. Golladay posted nearly 1200 yards and eleven touchdowns in 2019 and showed what he could add to the offense. If the Lions can’t reach a deal with Golladay, I fully expect them to tag him. Do the right thing, Detroit!

Will Fuller WR – Green Bay Packers

This seems like the most impactful free agent signing that could happen in the NFC North. Fuller and the Packers were linked around the trade deadline last year, and free agency rumors picked right back up this offseason. Fuller would take the top off the defense with his immense speed and allow Davante Adams to use his route running ability to get open underneath. Aaron Rodgers would love this as he has lacked another pass-catching weapon for some time now. Health would be the biggest question surrounding Fuller, but it’s not enough to scare off interested teams. As a Bears fan, it kills me to say I love this signing.

Allen Robinson WR / Keanu Neal S – Chicago Bears

A massive piece of the Bears free agency will be if they bring back Allen Robinson. Re-signing Robinson is and will be number one on the Bears list this offseason. Without Robinson, the Bears would have no star power on the ball’s offensive side, and the team would lack an identity. Back to back, 1100+ seasons are hard to replace. For this article’s sake, I didn’t want to put two players returning to their teams. The Bears have had a revolving door at the safety opposite of Eddie Jackson. This year I think the Bears could add another safety with a short “prove-it” deal. Keanu Neal would fit well with the Bears’ current personnel. Eddie Jackson would be back to roam and ballhawk, which is his best ability. Neal struggles in coverage at times but is quick and could make big plays near the line of scrimmage. His recent injuries would help the Bears’ case of signing him to a shorter deal.
