5 biggest notes from Chicago Bears initial 53-man roster
Jesper Horsted and JP Holtz both made it
The thought early in training camp was that Jesper Horsted was going to be on the outside looking in, just like last year. With Jesse James as tight end three, Holtz was holding down the fourth spot because he plays the H-back role.
With that in mind, it would be hard for Horsed to make it as a fifth tight end. However, after his huge preseason finale, the argument was that Holtz may get cut because he is banged up and did not play in the last preseason game.
Perhaps Holtz could still end up on the IR, and the Bears add a corner in that manner. However, as of now, it looks like the Chicago Bears are saying that they are satisfied with four tight ends, and Holtz being the fifth as the H-back type. Matt Nagy does love his tight ends, and he proved it.
