Free-agent WR Taylor Gabriel (Falcons) is expected to sign a four-year deal with the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: Gabriel and Allen Robinson will really open up the field for the Bears this year. Chicago has added quality playmakers to an injury riddled receiving corps and Gabriel could be in for a sizable workload if either or both of Kevin White and Cameron Meredith are hurt again. For now, though, view him as a flier in later rounds. He is a more ideal fit in standard schemes.

Fortunately, the team has Week 5 to recuperate during a bye.
