With NFL free agency kicking off exactly a week from today, 20 members of the Bears are set to hit the open market.

Some of the key players include: Henry Melton, Charles Tillman, Jeremiah Ratliff, Major Wright, Josh McCown and Corey Wootton. Returner Devin Hester would be included in this list, but reports on Tuesday surfaced that the Bears have no interest in bringing back the former Pro Bowler. All of the aforementioned players are at least expected to test the market before opening up negotiations with the Bears.

On Tuesday's edition of SportsTalk Live, the panel discussed which Bear is the most important free agent to bring back with the consensus being McCown and Melton.

Sun-Times Bears beat writer Adam Jahns talked about how thin the Bears are on the defensive line and why it's imperative for the team to rebuild that position.

"You have to rebuild the front," he said. "There so thin in the trenches ... And it all starts up front."

Which remaining Bears free agent would you make the No. 1 priority to bring back in 2014?
