Chicago Bears: 3 players on offense earning themselves a role in 2021
By Joseph Herff
These players for the Chicago Bears are making a name for themselves
With training camp upon us, the Chicago Bears are underway with their new and improved offense. The Bears have plenty of new toys from both free agency and the NFL Draft. Speculating on who will play is now over as we can see first-hand who plays on the offense.
It remains to be seen how the playing time will be split between plenty of players from Damiere Byrd and Marquise Goodwin to Jesse James and Jimmy Graham. We now likely need to wait for the season to truly see who can start and earn themselves some playing time.
However, since training camp is started, we are starting to see certain players earn themselves more playing time whether that is due to injuries or the success they are having with the Bears during camp. Regardless, some players we didn’t expect may see the field more than we expect.
In addition to that, we are seeing a shift in the offense adding more explosive weapons. We could see plenty of players with more speed and versatility on the field similar to Tarik Cohen. That may finally lead to Matt Nagy fully unlocking his offense that has yet to take stride since his 2018 debut.
With all of that being said, here are three players that are starting to carve themselves a role into this newly-remodeled Chicago Bears offense for the 2021 season.
