1. Tremaine Edmunds brings experience to the middle of the Chicago Bears

We talk about youth and progression and the best is yet to come. Still, one thing that is key to Edmunds is that while that is all true, he also has heaps of NFL experience. He started as a 20-year-old rookie, and played nearly 1,000 snaps that season.

From there, the combination of durability and talent kept him on the field. Over five NFL seasons, he has 5,005 snaps. Jack Sanborn and T.J. Edwards have combined to play 2,846 so far in their career. Considering Edwards is older than Edmunds, that is impressive by Edmunds.

Edmunds and Edwards seem to fit perfectly. Edwards is smaller and does not have a high-end athletic nature. He is more of a processor. Edmunds is learning the mental side but his athletic ability keeps him competitive. Edwards lacks experience but should call plays. Edmunds brings experience but needs a play caller to help him line up. They fit well.
