NFL Executives Believe The Bears Only Made One Bad Offseason Signing.

The Chicago Bears made some pretty big changes this offseason, especially on the offensive side of the ball. The Bears and general manager Ryan Pace decided to let go of John Fox and hire a more offensive minded coach in Matt Nagy and followed that up with some big free agent signings. The team signed Allen Robinson, Trey Burton, Taylor Gabriel and drafted Anthony Miller. While consensus is that the Bears made some great moves, executives polled by ESPN feel that one of them might have been a mistake. "Chicago is a possible A grade for me" an exec said. "Nagy has a good mind, he's a leader, he is gregarious, he is everything you are going to want in a head coach. They brought in players who fit what he wants to do, with the only real bad contract being the Taylor Gabriel one."One exec stated that he doesn't think Gabriel will be able to put up any big numbers playing outdoors late in the season compared to playing inside while in Atlanta. Gabriel is only 5'8" and never reached the 1000 receiving yard mark during his four year career, and has only topped 600 yards once, and that was back during his rookie season in 2014. What do you think of the Gabriel signing?
