Which Bears UFAs will be back?

The start of unrestricted free agency is less than two weeks away, and the Bears have 13 players scheduled to hit the market, although we already know RB Matt Forte isn’t going anywhere. In addition, backup RB Kahlil Bell is a restricted free agent, who will probably be back with the team, considering he was more productive than Marion Barber last season. With the tight-lipped atmosphere that surrounds Halas Hall under new G.M. Phil Emery, it’s difficult to get a read on which of their own UFAs the Bears want back, but here’s my list, from top to bottom, of which players are the most important to retain. 1. RB Matt Forte 2. DE Israel Idonije 3. CB-ST Corey Graham 4. TE Kellen Davis 5. DT Amobi Okoye 6. S Craig Steltz 7. RB Kahlil Bell (RFA) 8. CB Tim Jennings 9. QB Josh McCown 10. WR Roy Williams 11. CB Zack Bowman 12. QB Caleb Hanie 13. S Brandon Meriweather 14. LS Chris Massey
