Another option at cornerback for the Chicago Bears could be Damarious Randall

When it comes to the cornerback position, I am not sold on the likes of Duke Shelley. As of now, Kyle Fuller is the lock at the left cornerback spot. However, with Artie Burns losing a roster spot due to injury and Kevin Toliver not making the team, that only leaves Jaylon Johnson as the clearcut option as the right cornerback. However, is he ready to start? Doubtful.

This means that Buster Skrine, who has playing time on the outside in his time with the Browns is likely to be the opening-day starter on the outside. I like Skrine, but I prefer him in the Nickel spot. Shelley is someone who could be stashed on the expanded practice squad and the team could look to bring in some help. This is where Damarious Randall comes into play.

Randall recently shifted to the strong safety position for the Cleveland Browns, but the former first-round pick of the Green Bay Packers started out as a cornerback during his first three seasons. Randall is only 28 and maybe the Bears want some youth and speed opposed to bringing in an older Amukamara. Randall’s best season was in 2018 when he recorded 85 tackles (72 solos), four interceptions and only allowed a quarterback rating of 79.6 when being targeted.

The team should consider bringing Randall in on a one-year deal and adding much-needed depth to the outside corner spot.
