The Chicago Bears should consider T.J. Edwards if he hits free agency
If you love Jack Sanborn, then you would love T.J. Edwards too. Like Sanborn, Edwards was an undrafted free agent out of Wisconsin. He has fought hard to earn a spot on the starting roster and should not be paid very well this offseason. The Philadelphia Eagles do not have a huge amount of salary cap space, but teams always seem to find a way to move money around for the players they truly want to keep. I’d be shocked if Edwards hits free agency, but if he does, he’d be a nice pairing with Sanborn.
Over the last two seasons, Edwards has finished with 130 and 159 combined tackles. Last season he had five tackles for loss and this year he finished with 10. He also has three sacks over the last two seasons but hasn’t made many splash plays when it comes to takeaways.
Edwards and Sanborn play the same position, but if one can take over as the weakside linebacker while the other mans the middle, this group would look like an upgrade over Nicholas Morrow. Morrow was as average as they come in 2022 and is easily replaceable.
