Although the national media might not agree, the Chicago Bears have a loaded roster this year. The talent at multiple positions is actually good enough to where the team is going to be cutting some very good players later on this summer.

Head coach Matt Nagy will have his work cut out for him in making some difficult decisions this year. As training camp nears, all of the talk will continue to be around the quarterback situation. Both Andy Dalton and Justin Fields will be competing for the starting job after Nagy admitted he’d give the rookie a chance to earn that spot a few days ago.

But, what about the other positions on the roster? Of course, Chicago fans are always talking about the quarterback. But, the Bears have a lot of talent elsewhere, too.

This summer, we will see some players break out in training camp only to be cut later on. That’s just the nature of the beast that is the NFL offseason. The Bears only have 53 spots on that final roster, and the majority of them are already locked down.

Which players could the Chicago Bears regret parting ways with this summer?

I do not envy coach Nagy one bit. The quarterback position has to be at the forefront of his mind, but other positions like wide receiver, edge rusher and safety will all have plenty of competition for those remaining roster spots.

The Bears might end up having a hard time building a consistent practice squad in 2021 due to other teams sneaking in and signing the unprotected players away from them this season. Whether some players are cut and brought back to the practice squad, or cut and then signed by another team, Chicago will undoubtedly see some talented guys play well elsewhere.

Which players could the Bears end up cutting and later regret it? There are a few different guys that fit this description, and for varying reasons.
