Chiefs GM Sounds Like He's Losing Free Agent WR To Bears

"There is no doubt that the Chicago Bears need to revamp their wide receiving corps. The name Jarvis Landry has been out there quite a bit, but general manager Ryan Pace may have another, cheaper option in the slot in free agent Albert Wilson.
Wilson, an undrafted free agent out of Georgia State, has spent the last four seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs. He had a career-high 62 targets, 42 catches, 554 yards and three touchdowns playing in Matt Nagy's offense last season.
Chiefs general manager Brett Veach was asked during the NFL Scouting Combine, in Indianapolis, on Wednesday, if he would consider re-signing Wilson.
«Well, Matt's in Chicago," was his reply, per Pro Football Weekly.
Of course, he is talking about Nagy. Wilson could be a very good addition to the Bears offense as long as he comes along with a receiver who can open up the top of the defense like Allen Robinson. He is tough slot receiver that is not afraid to go over the middle and take a big hit in order to make a catch. Think of him as a younger Kendall Wright with more upside.
