The Chicago Bears have a full roster, but that should not stop them from looking for more and better talent. To start things off, a few players should be cut before even taking a snap.

The Chicago Bears have gone out and found some solid replacement talent this offseason. Bringing in the likes of Jimmy Graham and Cole Kmet to replace Trey Burton. Trading a fourth-round pick that was acquired through the NFL’s compensatory draft pick process for Nick Foles was not as bad a move as many like to think. Whether Foles is the starter in 2020 or not, he is an upgrade in the quarterback room.

The defensive side of the ball saw a major upgrade across from Khalil Mack this offseason too. Robert Quinn was brought in to replace Leonard Floyd. Floyd was a solid linebacker but was not a pass rusher. Some wonder if Floyd would be better off playing inside linebacker with his run-stopping ability and coverage skills.

A few other positive moves the team made this offseason was signing Tashaun Gipson to play next to Eddie Jackson. Gipson will hopefully be a better fit than Ha Ha Clinton-Dix was last season. Furthermore, the upside from drafting Jaylon Johnson with the team’s second pick in the second round is fantastic. Johnson came with a first-round grade and could be an upgrade over Prince Amukamara.

With some additions via the draft and free agency, the Chicago Bears should cut these players without them taking a single snap.
