Chicago Bears Javon Wims, Wide Receiver

Javon Wims should be cut. The former seventh-round pick out of Georgia has made multiple major mistakes in the past year for the Bears in addition to a disappointing preseason performance against the Dolphins.

For starters, Wims got stupidly ejected for throwing a punch to Chauncey Gardner-Johnson against the New Orleans Saints. He randomly threw a punch after letting him get in his head. That alone would be fine, but then he had a horrible wide-open, crucial drop that would have been a touchdown against the Saints in the Wild Card game.

Wims hasn’t been much of a factor since being drafted in 2018. He has caught 28 passes for 266 yards and two touchdowns. He has mainly brought a special team presence and great outside blocking ability at wide receiver. That is something that is easily replaceable though by someone who doesn’t do the things Wims has done. That’s why the Bears brought in plenty of wide receivers this offseason.

Wims then began the Justin Fields campaign by committing a false start penalty. He additionally was only targeted once and outplayed by players like Rodney Adams, Riley Ridley, Justin Hardy, and Chris Lacy. Wims should continue tumbling down leading to a release.
