Since Kyle Long's sudden retirement, right guard is a position yet to be filled for the Bears.

Rashaad Coward will return this season after moving to right guard when Long was sidelined. Ted Larsen replaced Coward last season, but Larsen is a free agent, giving the Bears the option to either re-sign him or find someone else.

Which leads to this question: Should the Bears go after guard Michael Schofield III? On Monday, Bleacher Report placed Schofield on their "1 move every team should still make" list, and they're not wrong.

Schofield, who grew up in Orland Park, was released by the Los Angeles Rams, where he started all 16 games in his last two seasons. In 2016, Schofield was on the starting offensive line for the Denver Broncos when the team won Super Bowl L against the Carolina Panthers 24-10.

The 29-year-old is also married to Palos Heights native and Olympic gold medalist Kendall Coyne Schofield. Coyne Schofield became the first woman to compete in NHL's All-Star skills competition in 2019. She made additional history earlier this month taking part in an all-female broadcast crew as an NBC Sports analyst during a Chicago Blackhawks game.

Who better to fill in at guard than someone with so many ties to Chicago?
