From the Chicago Bears 90-man roster that was in training camp last summer, 33 names are still on the team. Of them, there are going to be a few that get cut as the team fills out the 53-man roster and 16-man practice squad.

Ryan Poles is going to continue to want to build the team in his view, and that will mean preferring players he brought in from the leftovers of the Ryan Pace era. Who are some players who may be moving on after the summer?

10. Kindle Vildor

From a starting spot to cut? This would not be the only starter under the Ryan Pace regime who would struggle to find a job. The Bears gave Kindle Vildor a chance last season, mainly because their first choice of Desmond Trufant did not work.

Vildor was not in a good spot, but he struggled mightily. Of 110 qualified cornerbacks last season he was worst in many key metrics.

The Chicago Bears obviously knew that they could not start him next season. Still, with Kyler Gordon and Jaylon Johnson as the one and two, Tavon Young, and Thomas Graham in the three and four spots, there are only one or two spots for him to compete for.

Greg Stroman, Bopete Keyes, Lamar Jackson, and Allie Green are all Ryan Poles-related players and all could be bottom of the roster players if they prove it on special teams. Stroman has been a starter when healthy. With Duke Shelley in the mix as well it is not a lock for Kindle Vildor to make the roster and he could be one of the next Ryan Pace leftovers to see the door.
