2. Do the Chicago Bears like Trevis Gipson?
If there is one thing we know about the Chicago Bears' new GM Ryan Poles, it is that he does like many Ryan Pace players. He did a lot of work to flip the roster, and now few are left. However, one player who does run counter to that argument was Trevis Gipson.
It is true that early on Al-Quadin Muhammad was playing more than Gipson, but once Robert Quinn was traded, the team gave Gipson a long look at starting. Needless to say, it went horribly. Gipson showed that while he can provide value as a depth rusher, he will never be the man that can win when he gets serious attention.
The Chicago Bears' edge rusher depth chart is thin, but they may be able to swap an edge they do not love for a chance at another edge rusher, or at least get a pick that they can flip for a different edge rusher. Gipson has two years left on his rookie salary, and any teams that need an additional edge rusher to put them over the top may be interested.
It would be a risky move, but if Trevis Gipson does not fit, and the team is not satisfied with his progression they might as well move on now, and not wait for him to expose himself again. We will find out what the team thinks of Gipson very soon.
