1. Jeremiah Attaochu

Of the five Chicago Bears listed here, Jeremiah Attaochu may be the one that is let go before the end of the season. While Mario Edwards could be a scheme fit, and Angelo Blackson will get a chance to earn snaps, Attaochu may be a player who wants to ask for his release so that he can get a better chance elsewhere and for a scheme that he benefits more in.

Attaochu is not fit for the 4-3 scheme and it better to play off of the ball in a versatile role. Beyond that, the depth at edge rusher is much deeper with additions such as Al-Quadin Mohammed and Dominique Robinson. When you add Robert Quinn and Trevis Gipson into the mix there is not even much of a role for Attaochu to have here.

Attaochu is a free agent next year so this is going to be it for him anyway. The question is much more about whether he stays the year or not. Even in that case, the odds are not great.
