The Chicago Bears should cut wide receiver Javon Wims

If you do a quick search on Twitter for Javon Wims, you’ll find plenty of fans who have had enough of this guy. At one point, he was a nice story — a seventh-round pick who made plenty of big catches throughout his collegiate career with the Georgia Bulldogs. His size and catch radius was always enticing, but Wims hasn’t been able to capitalize.

Last year, Wims and former teammate Anthony Miller got into it with New Orleans Saints cornerback Chauncey Gardner-Johnson. It is no coincidence that Miller is now gone. Similarly, Wims could end up being cut, but for more reasons than just a fight last year.

In practice, Wims has dropped a couple of easy passes. In last week’s game against the Dolphins, Wims had a crucial false start which cost Justin Fields in his first series with the team.

Even beyond these reasons, Wims has no room on the roster. The Bears have Allen Robinson, Darnell Mooney, Marquise Goodwin and Damiere Byrd pretty much locked into roster spots. Rookie Dazz Newsome should also make the final roster as well.

The sixth receiver spot very well could go to 26-year-old veteran Rodney Adams, who has only appeared in one career game since being drafted by the Minnesota Vikings back in 2017. He’s found a great chemistry with Fields, specifically, in camp.

It’ll be either Adams or Riley Ridley, who may be on his last chance with the Bears — and also hasn’t gotten much opportunity, to be frank.

There is no room for Wims. He’ll get the boot sooner or later.
