Chicago Bears: 4 Players whose stock dropped vs. Dolphins
The first preseason game is in the books for the Chicago Bears. We will have to wait and see how it might affect the roster going forward. Could we see a shift with other players getting more looks? Maybe a complete shift in depth chart positioning happens. Right now, only Matt Nagy and the other positional coaches know what changes will be made.
One change we know for sure that is happening is that Justin Fields will now earn some practice time with the starting offense. Matt Nagy made it clear that this is still not a quarterback competition, but after Justin Fields stole the show on Saturday versus the Dolphins, even Nagy wants to see what the kid has with better weapons and more difficult competition.
The Chicago Bears roster could change as players’ stock goes up and down
If Justin Fields wants to find himself as the starting quarterback to open the regular season versus the Rams, he will need to continue to string more practices and preseason games together. This is something that Matt Nagy has emphasized over and over again while head coach of the Chicago Bears. He made this comment during Mitch Trubisky’s time in Chicago — especially last season when referencing Trubisky and Nick Foles during their quarterback competition.
Fields might have stolen the show on Saturday, but a few of his teammates did not. There were a few teammates who either played poorly or were not good enough to look better than their competition. Here are four of those players who saw their stock drop and could see their roster spots slipping out of reach.
