Tyler Scott

Tyler Scott is another player who just could not find a role as a rookie. This is part on him and part on the Bears, though. Scott played outside throughout his career at Cincinnati, but the Bears wanted to move him into the slot to replace Darnell Mooney this year. 

The issue is that Mooney did not get hurt, and Chase Claypool was a huge bust. When you add in that Equanimeous St. Brown got hurt, the Bears needed outside help as they were shifting Scott into the slot. 

They gave Scott chances, and whether he was in over his head thanks to coaching or his own skill set, it did not result in a good season. By most metrics, few wide receivers have a rookie season so poor and rebound.

This year, he is behind Rome Odunze and Keenan Allen on top of DJ Moore, so the odds of him seeing the field are lower than last year.

Scott would have been great in a developmental league. It is starting to look like two years will go by with no signs of progress for the receiver.
