When it comes to Rasheem Green, it isn't that he played an awful game vs the Titans. In fact, he had a couple of snaps where he made himself known in the backfield. However, I did not like what I saw from him in the run game and to be honest, I thought Green should be further down on the depth chart prior to the unofficial depth chart being released before this game.

The Chicago Bears have a surprisingly better defensive end group than many originally thought -- myself included. The addition of Yannick Ngakoue pushes every end down the depth chart as it is. With him in the top spot and DeMarcus Walker likely the end opposite of him, it leaves only two to three open spots available. Last season, the Chicago Bears only kept four defensive ends and four defensive tackles. At most, I can see them keeping five. Who doesn't make the cut?

After Ngakoue was signed, I ranked the defensive ends in order of who I thought will be cut first. Rasheem Green did not make my 53-man roster. This was of course before the Bears released their depth chart and Trevis Gipson was at the bottom. Gipson played very well vs the Titans and if he doesn't stick around, then Ryan Poles better find a way to trade him for at least a Day 3 pick.

The performances of Gipson and Terrel Lewis should be enough for Green to feel some pressure. His name hardly came up in camp and he was basically a no-show the day I was in attendance. If Walker is healthy, then I'd prefer the team keep Dominique Robinson, Gipson, and Lewis ahead of Green.
