Chicago Bears: Most notable roster cuts the team must consider signing
The Chicago Bears should consider signing some of these notable roster cuts
At this time of year, players find themselves out on the street as the NFL requires teams to make roster cuts prior to the regular season. Yesterday, the Chicago Bears cut multiple players who are likely to be brought back on the expanded 16-man practice squad later today. However, teams also have the right to claim or sign players who may have become camp casualties from other teams.
Looking at some of the cuts made by the Chicago Bears yesterday, it is quite possible the team has some other players in mind who they might prefer to those who were already on the roster. Most notably the team decided not to retain the services of Kevin Toliver. Toliver had stepped in as a starter last season when Prince Amukamara was hurt. Many thought he might start the season opposite of Kyle Fuller as Jaylon Johnson was slowly brought into things after his shoulder surgery.
Although Toliver might be added to the practice squad, it is also possible the team could have its sights on a proven veteran who may no longer be needed by another team. This season will be tough for opposing teams to evaluate other players from around the league without having preseason tape. This will allow younger players to go unnoticed and be retained on practice squads by their current teams. Although established veterans could be swooped up.
There have been a few notable cuts already that could be of use to the Chicago Bears as the 2020 regular season is set to get kicked off in less than a week’s time. In fact, the team has already come to terms with ex-Saints defensive lineman Mario Edwards. We take a look at some other options the team could consider now.
