4 Chicago Bears we can safely call busts after the 2023 season

The Chicago Bears are getting ready for the 2024 NFL Draft, and in doing so, they must avoid busts at all costs. They don't want a repeat of these four players.

Chicago Bears Bust No. 2: Chase Claypool

Now, his time was very brief with the Chicago Bears, but there are some fans out there who would say this player is the worst Bear of all time. I'm not ready to say all that, but, Chase Claypool was a Chicago Bears bust.

In fact, Chase Claypool is one of Ryan Poles' biggest misses as the general manager of the Chicago Bears.

Physically, Claypool is built to be a dangerous NFL wide receiver. He has good height on a good frame, but there's a disconnect somewhere. And for the price of the No. 32 pick, at the time, it was really bad for someone who produced 18 receptions for 191 yards and one touchdown over 10 games.

In theory, the Chicago Bears could've had Joey Porter Jr. instead of a 10-game experiment with Chase Claypool. Instead, they add Claypool to their list of busts.
