The Chicago Bears will far and away make Jimmy Garoppolo their top priority this offseason.

Garoppolo is a native of Illinois and the Bears would like to move on from Jay Cutler.

Garoppolo could be traded by the New England Patriots this offseason with Tom Brady still planning on playing several seasons.

The Cleveland Browns, New York Jets and San Francisco 49ers are also expected to have interest in Garoppolo. 

The Bears are prepared to engage in talks on Garoppolo at the combine later this month, or sooner if need be.
