Top Receiver Is Off The Free Agent Market

"There is no doubt that the Chicago Bears need to improve the wide receiver position this offseason, whether it be through free agency, the draft or a trade.
One of their top options on the free agent market is off the board as the Miami Dolphins have slapped the franchise tag on Travis Landry. The 2014 second-round pick has developed into one of the best slot receivers in the league with over 100 catches in two of the past three years. Landry will get a hefty raise and make just over $16 million next season.
There are still plenty of options remaining on the market Allen Robinson, Sammy Watkins, Terrelle Pryor, Paul Richardson and Josh Gordon among the lot.
Many fans are hoping that the Bears also use the eighth overall pick of this spring's NFL Draft to select an elite wide receiver. Yesterday, the team decided not to pick up the option veteran guard Josh Sitton. This has led to a lot of speculation that they will select the talented guard from Notre Dame, Quenton Nelson, but there is no guarantee that he will still be on the board when Bears pick. "
