Chicago Bears: 5 players the Bears could regret cutting this year

The Chicago Bears could regret cutting Charles Snowden this year
Like the younger Mack brother, the Bears have another young pass rusher who could surprise in training camp, Charles Snowden. The former Virginia pass rusher somehow went undrafted, and the Bears were lucky enough to scoop him up before another team signed him.
Snowden is a quick, athletic kid who still may not know the damage he can do with his frame. The 6-foot-6 former basketball player has plenty of room to grow, but my goodness can he rush the passer. He has experience doing many things, from getting after the quarterback, to blocking field goals, to even covering tight ends downfield. Snowden could be a real player in this league at the outside linebacker position.
The Bears have plenty of players at that spot to compete for the final roster positions. Aside from Mack and Robert Quinn, they have veteran Jeremiah Attaochu, second-year pro, Trevis Gipson, James Vaughters and the younger Mack brother to name a few.
Snowden is certainly a practice squad candidate, but he is talented enough that another team would likely snag him before the Bears had a chance to keep him around. Snowden is someone well-worth taking a gamble on and keeping on the roster. If not, the Bears could regret losing him and watching him break out with another team.
