5 Chicago Bears most likely to be in second round of cuts
The Chicago Bears have until Tuesday at 5 PM to make the necessary cuts on their roster that gets them from 85 to 80. Last week wrote about possible players to get waived and nailed three of the five who ended up off of the roster.
Now, we are hoping to get four or five of the players who do not make it when the roster goes down to 80. Which players are most likely to get cut?
5. David Moore
I do not blame you if you forgot that David Moore is on the roster. Moore has missed the past two weeks of practice with a lower-body injury. With that, he has not played in any of the preseason games. This is putting Moore in a tough spot.
The Chicago Bears wide receiver depth chart is not loaded, but it actually is starting to sort itself out. Darnell Mooney, ESB, Byron Pringle, and Velus Jones all locked in roles, and Dante Pettis took the last two games to prove he belongs as wide receiver five.
As a sixth wideout, Moore would have to show something on special teams, and that is not his game. With his injury status, he may not play in the next game anyways, so cutting him would be a formality. You cannot make the club from the tub, and that may be what keeps Moore from sticking around for another game.
