Bears Owner George McCaskey Personally Picked Up GM Candidate At O’Hare Airport

Are the Bears getting ready to hire a new general manager? It sure looks like.

Chicago Bears chairman George McCaskey was spotted at Chicago’s O’Hare Airport picking up Kansas City Chiefs executive director of player personnel Ryan Poles.

Ryan Poles was scheduled to conduct a second interview with the Chicago Bears for their vacant general manager job and it’s pretty telling that his boss would actually pick him up from the airport.

Poles has been a rising star among the Chiefs organization, where he’s survived three different GM regimes and continued to climb the ranks within the organization. Poles has extensive scouting experience, where he’s overseen all aspects of scouting players, helps with free agency preparation and assists GM Brett Veach with the NFL draft.


Poles has been with Kansas City for his entire NFL career, which spans 13 seasons. He’s seen how a successful NFL franchise operates, which is something the Bears would like to replicate.
