Eddie Royal officially signs with Chicago Bears


Eddie Royal has officially signed with the Chicago Bears. 

There was a bit of confusion with Eddie Royal and his signing with the Chicago Bears early on Tuesday. Someone had said that Royal had signed with Chicago, while there were other sources that had said the deal was not yet complete.

Now it looks like the deal is complete. Eddie Royal has officially signed with the Chicago Bears.

Royal enjoyed playing with Jay Cutler during their time in Denver and will join him again in Chicago. Did Royal actually choose to join Jay Cutler over Philip Rivers?

What will the San Diego Chargers do at receiver now? Who will the team move to the slot position now that Royal is out?

The Chargers could use Malcom Floyd and Jacoby Jones on the outside and move Keenan Allen into the slot. It wouldn’t be the best solution for the Chargers, but it could be the direction that the team goes if they do not add another starter onto the roster. An option in free agency could be Dwayne Bowe of the Kansas City Chiefs. He is expected to be released on Wednesday and has been a solid player for a while.

Mike McCoy should be familiar with Dwayne Bowe since he has played against Bowe twice per season for the last few seasons. He would be a threat outside and it would allow Allen role. Bowe also is a big time threat in the red zone. If Bowe or another free agent is not the solution, then the team will find someone in the draft.

Who will be the answer for the Chargers at receiver?
