The Bears are a study in football. They have a 2022 payroll close to two-thirds of the NFL’s salary cap. They play more of a graduate team than a professional one, with the vast majority of their players working out steady, reasonable initial contracts. The lack of highly paid players on Chicago’s roster is stark.

salary cap for 2022 is $208 million; The Bears’ salary is about $140 million. To put that in perspective, the payroll bears are:

• $18 million less than the second-lowest-spending Falcons in the league.
