The Chicago Bears should consider looking for a diamond in the rough from CFL

Unfortunately for the players of the CFL, their 2020 season has been canceled. Could this lead to an influx of players into the NFL? The Chicago Bears do not seem to mind looking into the CFL player pool for help. Last year the team signed James Vaughters to a contract and this offseason they brought in Tre Roberson to compete for the starting cornerback position opposite Kyle Fuller.

Today brought forth a potential problem that could rear its ugly head come the regular season. It was announced that nine players and staff tested positive for COVID-19. Luckily the tests were false positives and everyone seems to be okay. The league is having an issue with one of its testing facilities in New Jersey. Once the threat was known, the Bears delayed practice. However, it did take place as planned later in the day.

This should open up the eyes of coaches and honestly Ryan Pace too. If an outbreak hits, the team might need to count on some new faces for a short period of time. The Bears have been holding tryouts for certain players recently and it seems to me that bringing in a player or two from the CFL makes sense. I will admit, I am not a big observer of the CFL. I had to do a little digging into the league and some of the guys to keep an eye out for. Here are five I think could be worth the look.
