The air is thick with anticipation. For fans of the Chicago Bears, the recent roster announcements have been a roller coaster of emotions. With the NFL season approaching, teams are making the tough calls, and the Bears are no exception.
Major Moves on the Horizon
Tuesday witnessed a significant reshuffle. The Bears reached the NFL’s mandatory 53-man roster by making some hard decisions:
- Waiving 24 players
- Terminating contracts of six esteemed veterans
- Placing Isaiah Ford on the injured reserve
- Declaring Trestan Ebner as waived/injured
Among those shown the door were prominent figures like Micah Baskerville, Travis Bell, and Robert Burns. Meanwhile, seasoned pros like Andrew Brown, Aviante Collins, and Nathan Peterman are now free agents.
Looking Ahead: The Practice Squad
However, all hope is still for those who didn’t cut. By Wednesday, the Bears are set to establish a 16-man practice squad. If history is anything to go by, many faces we saw exit on Tuesday could be part of the Bears again, albeit in the practice squad.
Who Made The Cut?
The roster now boasts two quarterbacks: the promising Justin Fields and Tyson Bagent. The lineup is further beefed up with a notable mix of running backs, tight ends, and offensive linemen. The expansive receiver department, with talents like Chase Claypool and Darnell Mooney, looks formidable.
Defensively, including names such as Rasheem Green and Yannick Ngakoue excites fans. A noteworthy stat: 17 of the 21 players from GM Ryan Poles’ first two draft classes are now part of the Bears. Interestingly, eight players who were let go had featured in regular season games for the Bears the previous year.
The current roster is 52, making us wonder who will be the final inclusion. The new season promises thrills, spills, and heart-stopping action.
