5 Bears who have offered almost nothing to the team in 2021
Chicago Bears low-impact honorable mentions
Since some players on this team were more hope than reality when placing expectations, the bar that’s been set is lower for these players. The ones above were guys that are either paid enough to expect big things, were drafted with high expectations using relatively high draft capital, or they’ve been good players in the past.
Damiere Byrd, WR
First up in the honorable mentions is Damiere Byrd. Ranging anywhere between 25% and 76% of offensive snaps each week, Damiere Byrd has only 29 yards off four catches. Granted, he’s hauled in four of five targets, but having only 29 yards of offense the entire season is a low-enough impact to at least mention.
Marquise Godwin, WR
Similar to Damiere Byrd, Marquise Goodwin was a guy that was brought in because of potential, not necessarily the fact that he was a top WR.
Considering he has fewer offensive snaps, his production is more impressive than Byrd’s, however. In eight games, Marquise Goodwin has brought in 12 of 24 targets for 173 yards and no touchdowns. Considering Goodwin’s speed, many Chicago Bears fans had dreams of seeing Goodwin burning down the sideline, yet, their reality has shown nothing close to that yet outside of the amazing throw and catch versus the Steelers.
