There are a few notable mentions with rising stock from Chicago Bears camp too

There are a few other names that have seen their stock increase, just not as much as the other four listed. This is a good thing, as the more positives we can discuss, the better this team will be when the regular season rolls around. Here are a few players who could have made this list and could be on the next one as training camp progresses.

Andy Dalton, QB

Andy Dalton would have been my fourth player had it not been for how well Alec Ogletree has played since being signed last Thursday. Dalton did not have high expectations from fans. This is why he is on this list and not Justin Fields. Dalton has been everything that Matt Nagy and Ryan Pace wanted from a veteran quarterback. He has made plenty of big throws and looks like the experienced quarterback the team needed last season.

Rodney Adams, WR

Not many people have heard of Rodney Adams. He was drafted by the Vikings in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, bounced around on the Vikings and Colts practice squads between 2017 and 2018, then decided to retire and pursue a career in acting. He was reinstated in 2020 and cut by the Colts. He signed with the Chicago Bears last August, but never saw the field.

Adams has looked great in camp — and not just because of Justin Fields. He could also be used in the return game.

Jon’Vea Johnson, WR

Another wide receiver worth mentioning is Jon’Vea Johnson. He has also impressed during camp, just not as much as Rodney Adams. Johnson has some decent speed to be a deep threat in the right situations. He might not make the Chicago Bears final roster, but if he shows his abilities in preseason he could stick around on the practice squad or be swooped up by another team. His quality camp is probably the most directly related to playing with Fields than the others mentioned.
