The Chicago Bears are rebuilding their roster and that primarily is starting with tearing things down. While the team did get rid of a lot of the mess that Ryan Pace left behind, it would be nice if some of the players that Pace built the roster with were able to stick around.

While these players will not turn into NFL stars, they are depth players that Ryan Pace has been developing. If Pace deserves credit for one thing it should be how he found late-round picks, Who are some Pace players that could become depth pieces long term under the Poles regime?

5. Deandre Houston-Carson could be a Chicago Bears lifer

You can say that Ryan Poles has arguably already deemed DHC worthy of keeping around. Still, he Is only signed to a one-year deal, and the money he signed to did not signify that he would be guaranteed to make the roster.

At the same time, Houston-Carson was excellent for the Bears when he was called upon on defense last season. It was a surprising revelation, and if he can continue with that type of play, he could find himself on the field in dime situations.

Beyond that, DHC has been a Ryan Pace favorite since 2016 without any defensive production because he is valued on special teams. For six years, he made rosters solely based on his skill on special teams.

The Chicago Bears have a big decision to make with Eddie Jackson. They still have holes that will be addressed next offseason, so creating multiple holes in the safety depth chart is not smart. Ryan Poles should hold onto DHC, and DHC may slowly become the next Sherrick McManis, who lasts through multiple coaching staffs, and front offices.
