Every year there is a surprise player who has a strong training camp and finds themself on the roster despite many assuming they would not be there. That would be no different for the Chicago Bears this year. While most of the roster is set, there are some players who could sneak on that not many fans are thinking about.

5. Austin Calitro

Not many fans know of Austin Calitro, but this player could very easily be pushing Josh Woods and Joel Iyiegbuniwe out at linebacker with a strong training camp. Calitro has bounced around from Seattle to Jacksonville and Denver. However, that means he spent last season with Vic Fangio.

He also made all three rosters and has been active for 42 career games. Iyiegbuniwe has stayed on the roster but has hurt more than helped and that has only come on special teams. Towards the end of last season, it looked like the team favored Josh Woods over him. They could very easily favor Calitro over both, and fans will hope to learn his name by his presence on special teams.
