This episode will be all about the cap.With the help of Brad Spielberger from Over The Cap, I roar through pretty much every question I could think ofrelated to the Bears’ 2019 salary cap situation and how it affects their offseason. The questions include...Does Cap Hell exist? If so, what causes it?How much cap space will the Chicago Bears have to work with this offseason?Can the Bears actually cut Cody Parkey? What would his cap hit do to their offseason plans?Some have mentioned potentially restructuring Kyle Long’s deal/turning some folks’ cap hits into signing bonus. What’s involved in a contract-restructure and how does it affect the cap?The Bears have a few fairly important players hitting free agency this offseason — what happens to Bobby Massie, Adrian Amos, Bryce Callahan, Patrick O’Donnell, and the others?What even is an RFA? An ERFA?Who are a few way-too-early Free Agency targets for Bears’ fans to keep their eyes on?Which of the Bears’ NFC North rivals has the worst cap outlook right now?Give it a listen and let me know what you think! Be sure to shoot Brad Spielberger a follow if Twitter is your thing, he brought tons of great info to this episode. Bear down, and thanks so much for Bearing With Me!

Hockenson was the first player selected by an NFC North team in this year’s draft.Photo by Andy Lyons/Getty ImagesWith the Bears having won the NFC North last season, this year’s NFL Draft served as a chance for their divisional rivals to potentially unseat them from the throne.Chicago didn’t have any picks in the first two rounds, which gave their foes the chance to try to close the gap in the division by adding young, high-ceiling talent. While some picks were more confusing than others, all three teams found a couple of players who could be immediate contributors. To get to know some of the players the Bears will play twice a year for the foreseeable future, let’s break down what all of the other NFC North teams did in the draft this year.Detroit LionsRound 1: T.J. Hockenson, TE Pat O'Donnell Jersey , IowaRound 2: Jahlani Tavai, LB, HawaiiRound 3: Will Harris, S, Boston CollegeRound 4: Austin Bryant, EDGE, ClemsonRound 5: Amani Oruwariye, CB, Penn StateRound 6: Travis Fulgham, WR, Old DominionRound 6: Tyron Johnson, RB, Oklahoma StateRound 7: Isaac Nauta, TE, GeorgiaRound 7: P.J. Johnson, DT, ArizonaThe Lions had a handful of Day 3 steals, but I’m ultimately not very impressed with their haul in the first three rounds of the draft. Hockenson has potential to be a top-five tight end in the NFL , but I question how much he’ll be utilized in Detroit’s offense. Tavai is a two-down thumper who can tackle reliably, but he doesn’t offer too much in the way of athleticism or coverage reliability. Harris is a lengthy and athletic safety with some room to grow into a starter, so even though he’s much more reactive than instinctive as this point, I can understand why the Lions liked him. I really like the Oruwariye selection for them, though, as I feel he can be a starting press cornerback at the professional level.Green Bay PackersRound 1: Rashan Gary, DE/EDGE, MichiganRound 1: Darnell Savage, S, MarylandRound 2: Elgton Jenkins, C, Mississippi StateRound 3: Jace Sternberger, TE, Texas A&MRound 5: Kingsley Keke, DT, Texas A&MRound 6: Ka’Dar Hollman, CB, ToledoRound 6: Dexter Williams Tom Waddle Color Rush Jersey , RB, Notre DameRound 7: Ty Summers, LB, TCUWhen it comes to hauls in the first two days of the draft, the Packers may have had the best in the division. Granted, having two first-round picks does help them out a bit, but they added a lot of good players early on. Gary is an athletic freak who, though raw, offers Pro Bowl upside. Joining the likes of Mike Daniels, Kenny Clark, Za’Darius Smith and Preston Smith in the front-seven, Green Bay’s pass rush is looking very intimidating. The rangy and athletic Savage is a very good complement to Adrian Amos, who will benefit yet again from having a safety with that skill set next to him. Jenkins fits a need and is a reliable force in both pass protection and run blocking, and Sternberger was also a great pick, as he can develop into a deadly U tight end at the next level. I’m not too keen on their Day 3 picks, though Williams should be able to carve out a role for himself as a solid short-yardage back.Minnesota VikingsRound 1: Garrett Bradbury, C, North Carolina StateRound 2: Irv Smith Jr. Sam Acho Jersey , TE, AlabamaRound 3: Alexander Mattison, RB, Boise StateRound 4: Dru Samia, OG, OklahomaRound 5: Cameron Smith, LB, USCRound 6: Armon Watts, DT, ArkansasRound 6: Marcus Epps, S, WyomingRound 6: Oli Udoh, OT, ElonRound 7: Kris Boyd, CB, TexasRound 7: Dillon Mitchell, WR, OregonRound 7: Olabisi Johnson , WR, Colorado StateRound 7: Austin Cutting, LS, Air ForceMinnesota had a boatload of picks to work with, and they did a good job of adding quality talent. Bradbury has all of the tools of a Pro Bowl center, and with some bulking up, I don’t know if there will be a glaring weakness in his game. The middle of the second round is a fit for Smith than the late first, so the value here in a well-rounded pass catcher was good here. The third round was way too high for Mattison, who doesn’t appear to have the speed or the contact balance to be a back who consistently gets touches. The Vikings had a whopping nine picks on Day 3, and they managed to find a lot of great value. Samia and Smith have the potential to step in as starters, while the likes of Watts, Udoh and Mitchell are intriguing late-round picks who could be solid depth.
