6. Justin Jones, DT

If the Bears were merely wanting a warm-bodied starter at defensive tackle when they signed Justin Jones in the offseason of 2022, then that makes a ton of sense. That's exactly what Jones has been in his year and a half with the team.

Many fans have certainly liked Jones' press conferences, especially his disdain for Green Bay. But, other than providing those hilarious clips, Jones hasn't done a whole lot for the fan base and team. It's actually a bit curious why the Bears signed him in the first place when trying to rebuild this defensive line. Jones has never been great against the run, or much of a factor rushing the passer.

In essence, he's kind of just been "there," no matter where he's played.

While the Bears are actively trying to improve their defensive line by adding Montez Sweat at this year's deadline, they should look to be moving on from Jones and giving more time to the youngsters. In addition, Chicago should invest some more capital up front in next year's draft.

Jones' time in Chicago is up after this year, and the Bears should be wise not to re-sign him. Go find a guy who can make some noise rushing the passer. That's where this team needs some help.
