If you have followed my content, you know that I am a big Ryan Poles supporter. I ranked him as my top option at general manager before he was even hired. No matter how much you like someone or think they are the right person for the job, it does not mean that you will or should agree with every decision they make. Today, I am not happy with three consecutive moves the Chicago Bears have made at the defensive end position.
Yesterday was the deadline day for NFL teams to reduce their rosters from 90 players to 53. The Chicago Bears didn't have any big surprises when it came to their initial roster cuts. As I stated, don't expect that 53-man roster to stay the same for long. It's already been changing as waiver claims had to be in prior to 11:00 a.m. EST. Ryan Poles and the Chicago Bears had the top waiver spot and got to work early.
The Chicago Bears 53-man roster has already drasticcally changed
It should be noted that the team kept 52 players on the roster instead of 53 to make room for Dan Feeney who Poles traded a sixth-round pick to Miami for yesterday. Once Feeney passed his physical, he was added to the roster. In fact, he's already been practicing today and working on snapping the football. He isn't likely to start in Week 1 but could push Lucas Patrick early due to the Cody Whitehair and Doug Kramer hand injuries.
Now, for why I am upset today.
