1. Should Chase Allen make the Chicago Bears roster?

Chase Allen has a serious chance to make the Chicago Bears roster. However, he has just as good of a chance to get cut. He is right on that edge. Allen was a UDFA last year, but made the practice squad, and got his name called for the active roster a few times. That is a nice step, but is it enough to make the roster?

The big thing that Allen has going for him is that the tight end room is very thin. He is seeing Cole Kmet and Robert Tonyan ahead of him. You can make a strong case that Jake Tonges is ahead of him as well, but still Allen is competing for the third tight end spot. If he wins the third tight end spot, he is making the roster. If he does not, he could still make it as the fourth tight end. However, his odds just went down significantly.
