Reggie Begelton, WR

Our final candidate also finds himself on the offensive side of the ball. The Chicago Bears have plenty of wide receivers on the roster, but bringing in another for a tryout would not be a bad idea. The team could lose multiple players to COVID-19 should a breakout happen. Injuries are also a concern, especially in regards to Anthony Miller who has not played a full season yet. Should Ted Ginn find himself on the roster, he is not a spring chicken and could also deal with nagging injuries.

Needless to say, the team will continue to need to bring in players to get a feel for who they would think could step in if needed. Reggie Begelton could be that guy. He is arguably the best wide receiver in the league. If not the best, he is easily top three.

In 2019, Begelton was third in yards with 1,444. He was also tied for third in receiving touchdowns with 10. To keep it going, Begelton was second in receptions with 102 and third in targets with 144. He stands 6’2″ and 205 pounds.

Next. One of these CFL quarterbacks should replace Tyler Bray. dark

Many who follow the CFL closely might be wondering why Brandon Banks is not the guy I would consider bring in here. He is definitely the best playmaker in the league. The thing is, Banks is only 5’7″ and 150 pounds. He is also 32 years old. None of these things make me confident he could hold up in the NFL. Another legit option for Ryan Pace could be Bryan Burnham. He is similar in size to Begelton and has more sustained production. I just like Begelton slightly more.
