8. Dieter Eiselen is on his last legs with the Chicago Bears
Dieter Eiselen has stuck with the Chicago Bears since 2020. He is one of the few Ryan Pace players still left. However, it does feel as though his days are numbered on the Bears depth chart as he enters year four.
He missed the first preseason of his career due to COVID shutting things down. In 2021, he played right guard in the preseason. In 2022, he played center with Ryan Poles in control. Now, in 2023, he seems to be playing wherever they need him.
He played left guard last week and took 22 snaps at center this week. In some ways, it is good that he can play center, because Lucas Patric and Cody Whitehair are hurt. Still, Josh Lugg played center over him in week one, so they are not too sold. Beyond that, they do not have much of a plan for him.
He moved away from left guard because they claimed Logan Stenberg off of waivers. Stenberg and Doug Kramer, who started at center last night, have a better chance at making the roster than Eiselen. He was once an intriguing undrafted free agent find; now, he will may be best served looking for a job on a different team, not the Chicago Bears practice squad.
