2. Dante Pettis is still fighting for a spot on the Chicago Bears roster
The Chicago Bears have a question at the depth part of their wide receiver depth chart. The final spots will eventually come down to special teams. The issue is that none of their depth receivers have locked down a spot.
Equamimeous St. Brown probably has, and has been a multiple phase member of the special teams unit. However, rookie Tyler Scott has not been able to find any roles on special teams. Velus Jones has held down the kick return job but has fumbled away the punt return job. Dante Pettis is the starting punt return option, but he has been injured all of the preseason.
The tides turned this week. Jones and Scott had been healthy, and Pettis fell behind in the training camp battle. Now, Scott and Jones were injured, and it was Dante Pettis getting work. Pettis did well as a receiver, but the key news was that he returned punts.
Pettis did not wow anyone, but he also did not fumble or cost the team. That is all they need at this point, and they cannot seem to find that from Jones or Scott. All of a sudden, this competition has gotten interesting.
