1. The Chicago Bears are getting nothing out of Travis Homer
Darrynton Evans was on the Chicago Bears last year. The Bears decided to let Evans walk, then paid Travis Homer more than him to fill the same role. The team saw this as an upgrade. Seven weeks into the season, that has proven to be wrong.
Homer was about to get his chance to make an impact when Khalil Herbert was placed on the IR, but he had an injury himself. So, the team signed Darrynton Evans off of the Miami Dolphins practice squad.
Evans looked good in week six, and when Travis Homer returned in week seven it was still Evans getting work over him. Evans played 34 snaps and Homer played just three. On one of the three snaps Homer fumbled as well.
This was not what you wanted to see. It is a minor move, but a bad move nonetheless. The Bears paid more and did the extra legwork, and they benched him for someone they let walk and signed off of a practice squad. They should have kept Evans in the first place.
