Chicago Bears: 5 players to watch in Preseason Week Three: Offense
After breaking out in the Hall of Fame game, Javon Wims has been relatively quiet over the past few weeks. That is likely because he has faced an uptick in competition. All of the sudden the questions of his speed and separation have come back.

While Wims has moved up, it is worth noting that he has still typically run behind Marlon Brown. That is not a good sign for his 53-man roster chances. Brown is a veteran and Wims’ struggles to beat him show his lack of experience and need for refinement.
Still, if you ask me who they keep between Brown and Wims, I am betting on Wims. It will be interesting to see how the receivers shake-up now with most of them in the lineup. Whoever is seeing second-team snaps has a huge advantage.
Is it Wims? Can Wims see the field at all with the depth being pushed back? How can he fare in what is going to be his biggest chance to make noise against the best competition he will face all preseason? These are the questions to watch as Wims looks to push up the depth chart before the regular season starts.
