Chicago Bears Players Whose Stock Fell: Javon Wims

Can a player’s stock drop when it’s already so low? Well, I think the answer here is yes. Javon Wims had an opportunity to make a contested catch on the sideline, but mistimed his jump and never had a chance. This is on top of a false start penalty where he ran nearly a full route before the ball was snapped and the whistle was blown. Nothing like failing to make a positive play when you are fighting to make the final roster.

That one target that Javon Wims saw on the sideline was his only target in the game. Not showing up on the stat sheet when Riley Ridley, Rodney Adams and even Justin Hardy made catches is not a good thing for Wims. The mental mistake he made on the false start would have likely resulted in a delay of game penalty anyway, but that still should not dismiss him of the mistake.

At this point, I still do not understand how Javon Wims is on this roster. He brings some special teams experience to the team, but that’s not a good enough reason to hold onto him any longer. Wims needs to be cut and there’s no reason to wait any longer. Personally, I would not even wait until the end of training camp, I’d give him his pink slip now and let him try to catch on with another team. Needless to say, Wims will no longer be on these lists, his stock is that low.
