Roy Robertson-Harris Ι DL

The first name on this list is a tough one. As someone who owns an autographed, game-worn practice jersey of Roy Robertson-Harris, I would hate to see him go. He has been a solid player for the Chicago Bears over the last few seasons and has proven to be a quality depth piece — especially versus the run.

Robertson-Harris has averaged 2.5 sacks each year for the Bears. This year he has not recorded any sacks and was put on injured reserve after Week 8. The injury will not likely be enough for his stock to decrease and his asking price to drop. As of now, Spotrac has Robertson-Harris’ price tag at $8.2 million per year. They predict he will sign a three-year, $24 million dollars deal. That is not something this Chicago Bears team can afford to take on in 2021.

The team would be better off signing Mario Edwards, Jr. to come back in 2021. Edwards has four sacks on the year and has played well situationally. The four sacks are a career-high for Edwards and he completed the task in fewer games. He clearly fits in with this roster, however, things could change should his domestic violence allegations prove to be more than just allegations.
