The Bears are expected to pursue a wide receiver in free agency and there is plenty of chatter about their options. Plaxico Burress called the Bears one of the top three teams he would like to sign with and Devin Hester has said he wants the team to pursue Santana Moss when free agency begins.

The Chicago Tribune reported that the Bears have no interest in signing Burress, though, and there's mutual interest between Moss and the Redskins, where Moss has spent the past six seasons.

Signing Sidney Rice, one of the top free agents available, would be a move Bears fans would embrace, but sources are skeptical that GM Jerry Angelo will make that big of a splash, and Rice's injury history — he missed 10 games last season after undergoing hip surgery — could be a concern.

Don't rule out Moss joining the Bears, but sources don't expect that the team's need for a good-sized No. 1 receiver will be addressed this offseason.
