1. Michael Joseph

Michae Joseph has been with the Chicago Bears since 2018 and a lot of fans probably did not realize that. To be fair, he spent the vast majority of his career on the practice squad. Joseph was a Ryan Pace UDFA from 2018 and started in the NFL as a cornerback.

After a few years on the practice squad as a CB, they moved him to safety and kept him around the practice squad once again. Still, it is looking like his time may be up. The Bears added Jaquan Brisker and Dane Cruikshank who will slot over Joseph, but more than names such as Jon Alexander, A.J. Thomas, and Elijah Hicks. Hicks was drafted, and the other two are UDFAs. They will have to beat out Joseph but are younger, tied to the team for longer, and they are Poles players, unlike Joseph.

Michael Joseph may be another player heading to the Atlanta Falcons considering Ryan Pace has had such an affinity for him. It was an impressive run, and Joseph did well for himself when you compare where most 2018 UDFAs are.

Still, with the changes coming, Joseph is going to finally be moving onto a new team and situation.
