1. Did Trevis Gipson work his way up the Chicago Bears roster
One of the biggest notes from the Chicago Bears' initial depth chart was that Trevis Gipson was way down the depth chart. Like, below rookie UDFA D'Anthony Jones low. However, that is why we always say that you have to take that depth chart with a grain of salt.
Gipson played before Jones and dominated this game like a player who should make an NFL roster. Gipson played 44 snaps in this game. He had 27 pass rush snaps, and finished with eight pressures. He was getting after it.
Gipson is going to need this, because he still was about the sixth man in the mix. Yannick Ngakoue, and DeMarcus Walker sat, signifying their starter status. Rasheem Green and Dominique Robinson started this game as the primary backups, then Lewis and Gipson got serious work, because they rar eon the roster bubble.
Fans need to remember that when assessing his play. One thing that may happen is Gipson may have opened himself up for a trade. His play, plus his depth chart standing may signal to teams to give Chicago a call. That would be a win for Gipson and the Chicago Bears.
