2. Equanimeous St. Brown, WR

When the Bears first signed former Packers wide receiver Equanimeous St. Brown during the offseason of 2022, fans were fine with the decision, taking him on as a flier. The big-bodied target had caught just 37 passes over three seasons in Green Bay, but was a fun prospect coming out of Notre Dame back in 2018.

He presented the opportunity to develop into a solid outside threat, with a huge frame and the potential for a big play downfield. But, St. Brown just never panned out into what some thought he could be.

In his season and a half in Chicago, St. Brown has operated mostly as a blocker. Now, don't get me wrong. His blocking is some of the best at the position in the league. But, if the Bears are going to keep him around solely to be a blocker and not to present any threat in the passing game when on the field, then he isn't worth paying for a third season.

Over his time in Chicago, St. Brown has caught 25 passes for 367 yards and just one touchdown. This season, when he's actually suited up, St. Brown has played 45 percent of offensive snaps, which is hard to believe for fans who watch the team. Playing almost half the snaps and not doing a whole lot seems like a waste of a roster spot. It's time to invest in more dynamic weapons all across the board.
