As the Chicago Bears prepare for the thrilling 2024 season, they boast a robust lineup across offense, defense, and special teams. However, they still face a gap in one critical area: the edge rusher position.

Currently, the Bears have Pro Bowler Montez Sweat, a significant upgrade from last year, but depth remains a concern with DeMarcus Walker being the only notable backup. With the season approaching, it seems likely that General Manager Ryan Poles might look to bolster this position with a seasoned player. Could this mean a return for Yannick Ngakoue?
Ngakoue's previous season was unfortunately shortened by an ankle injury during a Week 14 victory against the Detroit Lions. Now, four months later, he seems to have recovered, as indicated by a recent video he posted on Twitter, sparking discussions about his future with the team. Here's the link to the tweet
Last August, the Bears signed Ngakoue to a one-year deal worth $10.5 million to address their need for an edge rusher. Despite it being his least productive season with a career-low of 4.0 sacks, his performance was somewhat bolstered by Sweat's presence.
Considering the Bears' current needs, bringing back Ngakoue could be a strategic move. He is already familiar with Matt Eberflus' defensive schemes and has shown potential when paired with Sweat. However, for a reunion to be viable, both parties would need to consider a more cost-effective agreement.
