How much the Chicago Bears are spending on each position in 2022

The Chicago Bears ushered into a new regime under general manager Ryan Poles, and he wasted no time building his roster. That’s included getting some big contracts off the books and signing a lot of one-year, prove-it deals that won’t put the team in a tough position with the salary cap.

Currently, the Bears have $23.04 million in available cap space, which is the third-most in the NFL.

The Bears have allocated the most money to the defense with $88.63 million compared to $56.59 million on offense. When you break it down, Chicago is spending among the least cap space at offensive line, wide receiver, running back, quarterback and tight end.

Let’s take a look at how the salary cap breaks down for the Bears in 2022 by position, according to Spotrac.
