5 Chicago Bears who may have lost jobs in preseason finale
1. Mario Edwards
Mario Edwards did not do anything in the preseason, but perhaps that is the reason that he is on the list. Most 53-man roster projections have had Edwards on the 53-man roster, mainly because of the lack of depth within the front seven.
Beyond that, Edwards had a specific role that not many could replicate. He could play the run on the edge and then rush the passer from the interior. The versatility is valued on a roster without much depth.
However, the emergence of Sam Kamara may have taken his role away. Kamara did exactly as Edwards was described, as he got onto the field in the first half and walked the guard back from the interior. Kamara has already flashed bend around the edge, and his versatility has to have put him on notice.
It is not like Edwards was a Ryan Poles player, he is still left over from Ryan Pace. Kamara is too, but he is younger and healthier, and he just showed he can fill the role that Edwards is projected to.
The Bears may have been stuck with keeping Edwards, but now that they have a path to cutting him, it will be interesting to see if they take it.
