These five Chicago Bears are candidates to get cut before the 2020 season.
So we’re sitting around waiting for the Chicago Bears and the rest of the NFL to finally start training camp. Not a lot is happening at this time of year. Once training camp begins we get news ramping up. In the meantime, we take a look at the roster and speculate.
The Bears made a number of moves this offseason. As a result, there are a lot of position battles. They brought in quarterback Nick Foles so there will be a battle for the most important position on the team. The Bears also have a city-size number of tight ends. They have nine of them, but half of them won’t be around before the final cuts are made.
There is also a battle at the ever-important offensive line. Many people felt the line was atrocious last season so general manager Ryan Pace brought in some linemen to shake things up.
Training camp will be a lot busier this training camp than it was last year. Coming off a 12-4 season and a division title things seemed more settled. After falling to 8-8 and missing the playoffs in 2019, things are different. No more looking at the roster with rose-colored glasses.
Difficult decisions need to be made this time around. There will be some popular players who might not make it when Week 1 rolls around. The point of training camp is to get the best possible combination of players to build at least a playoff-contending team. Some of these players might be popular, but popularity doesn’t necessarily mean success.
Here are five players who are on the bubble. They need to perform well not only in training camp practices but also preseason games (especially if they cut the number of games). If they don’t they’ll end up offering their services to other teams.
