5. Can Tyson Bagent show enough to earn a roster spot?

The Chicago Bears will sit Justin Fields for the second preseason game. This is a good sign for all quarterbacks. It is great that Fields is showing enough that the coaches do not need to see more. PJ Walker gets to start and should get some starting-caliber talent around him.

Then, Tyson Bagent and Nathan Peterman are in for a lot of playing time. Bagent showed that the game was not too big for him in his NFL debut. At the very least, he can hang in the NFL. Now, the question is how he can build off of that.

As of now, he is in a battle with Nathan Peterman for the fourth spot. Bagent has far more upside, but Peterman brings stability, while Bagent is more of a project. Through one week, the team may be learning that he is not as much of a project as some think. Does he show enough to get on the roster as the third quarterback? The new rule encourages the team to keep a third. Still, he has to show more. The good news is that he should get a chance.
