As we inch closer to the kickoff of the NFL regular season, every team undergoes the demanding chore of slimming down their roster. The Chicago Bears, draped in their rich history, have made some eyebrow-raising choices this year. Let’s dive deep into some of the notable moves and what they might mean for the upcoming season:
1. The Curious Case of P.J. Walker
Handing P.J. Walker a two-year contract to back up star quarterback Justin Fields painted a promising picture. Yet, a series of underwhelming performances across the summer led to his release. A clear message from the Bears: performance trumps potential.
2. The Alex Leatherwood Gamble
Snatching Alex Leatherwood off waivers seemed like a smart move, but health concerns and an inability to lock down a stable position brought his time with the Bears to an end. The NFL remains a tough and unpredictable terrain.
3. Rising Stars and Tough Decisions
Names like Daurice Fountain and Kellen Diesch showed potential but faced intense competition. As new talents emerge, some familiar faces have to make way, emphasizing the cutthroat nature of the game.
4. Longshots and Hopes
Every year brings tales of underdogs – players who, against all odds, aim to secure their spot. Bobby Haskins, Logan Stenberg, and Bravvion Roy were among those who hoped to defy expectations. While their journey with the Bears might have paused, their NFL story isn’t necessarily over.
