If you have been following my work, you’ll know that I have already admitted to being wrong about Equanimeous St. Brown — at least in regards to how valuable the Chicago Bears view him. I can sit here and tell you all of the faults that St. Brown has in his game. I can sit here and go into details about how he hasn’t amounted to enough playing with one of the most talented quarterbacks in the NFL.

I have decided not to do that today though. Instead, I’m going to put my Bear Goggles On tight and look at all of the potential positives that Equanimeous St. Brown brings to this roster and try to get a sense of what the coaching staff is seeing in him. We have heard his name too many times, unprompted, to believe he isn’t a strong contender to make the final roster. Clearly, the coaches see something in this kid that we haven’t seen on the field over the last four years.

Equanimeous St. Brown offers the Chicago Bears more than we might think

Just a quick recap to refresh people’s memories of who Equanimeous St. Brown is as a player. St. Brown played at Notre Dame and was considered a solid prospect heading into the draft. Many analysts had him as high as a third-round grade. Instead, he was a sixth-round draft pick of the Green Bay Packers in 2018.

He had a below-average rookie season with 21 catches for 328 yards. He played 12 games and started in seven. The stats weren’t there, but we saw some flashes of what could be. Some rumors are that St. Brown got on Aaron Rodgers’ bad side and was put in the dog house. This might be the case seeing after missing the entire 2019 season with a severe high ankle sprain, St. Brown’s production dropped drastically.

Equanimeous St. Brown only saw 13 targets in 2020 and 17 in 2021. Was that due to St. Brown being bad or an egotistical, narcissistic Aaron Rodgers who wouldn’t throw him the ball? Well, Luke Getsy seems to still like him seeing he is the reason he’s on this Chicago Bears roster. Here is what Getsy probably sees.
