1. The Chicago Bears could get more from DeMarcus Walker by asking for less
This sounds a bit weird because the Chicago Bears traded for Montez Sweat, who will push Walker out of a starting spot. However, when the Chicago Bears signed Walker, he was always supposed to be a depth piece more than a starter. He could help on run-downs by playing the edge but could slide inside as a pass rusher.
The team has hardly been able to utilize this because they do not have an edge rushers worth pushing him inside. Now they do. They did not move Walker around too often, with Montez Sweat just getting eased into the mix. However, he did have his share of snaps next to Justin Jones along the interior.
Walker had three pressures on Sunday, and his play had been improving anyway. So, putting him back in a role he excels at should only make things better. Look for Walker to finish strong and have similar or better production on a lower snap count.
