As we get closer to training camp we will be counting down the days until the start of the 2022 NFL season by counting down the Chicago Bears roster. This will be looking at who has the potential to impact the wins and losses on the team most often.

We will be looking at just the 2022 season, and we are down to number 80 overall on our list.

Chicago Bears 2022 roster ranking: No. 80 Jayson Stanley

Jayson Stanley is by far the newest addition to the Chicago Bears roster at the time of this publishing. Stanley was signed after Dakota Dozier left OTAs on a cart. Dozier was placed on the IR, and it opened a spot for the team to sign Stanley.

Stanley comes from Georgia and has some athletic traits that have kept him in the NFL since 2019. Still, despite being over 6’2″ and 200 pounds, the tall and long cornerback has not stuck anywhere.

He was a UDFA in 2019 and spent time with the Falcons, Dolphins, and Jaguars practice squads. As he finished the year with the Jags he also went to training camp with them in 2020, but was cut, and spent time with the Seahawks to finish his 2020 campaign.

By 2021 Jayson Stanley was on the Green Bay Packers. He stuck around but was let go after the season. He had been a free agent since the 2021 season ended in January.

Jayson Stanley is entering his fourth season and has played on six teams, which is why he is ranked so low. Still, we just discussed Allie Green, a younger UDFA, but a player with a similar profile and much less athleticism.

In terms of experience, size, and athletic upside, you can see Stanley beating out Green, and it may have been seeing some of the new corners like Green that made them want to sign a player like Stanley.

Still, the practice squad appears to be a best-case scenario.
