1. The Chicago Bears can admit defeat on Chase Claypool
The Chicago Bears have to call it quits on Chase Claypool. He has been nothing close to what they signed up for. Some of it is on the coaches. They are asking him to block a lot and be an upgrade over Equanimeous St. Brown, but the two have differing strengths and weaknesses. Benching Velus Jones, asking St. Brown to do the Claypool role, and then using Claypool as a gadget type of player may be the best way to go moving forward.
However, for Claypool with the Chicago Bears, there is nothing here moving forward. He had the excuse of not knowing the playbook last year, and this year, he missed all of the offseason with minor injuries. Then, he showed up and played uninspired in week one. His blocking improved, only in that it is not highlight-level bad.
The only reason he has been active for the last two weeks it the Bears spent such a high draft pick on him. They have to admit defeat and try to play Tyler Scott and St. Brown over him. They can work in Claypool at times.
