Final cutdown day is underway in the NFL. The Chicago Bears, like every other team, have begun finalizing their initial 53-man roster as the team has already released a good amount of players.
On Monday, the beginning cuts included tight end Scooter Harrington, offensive lineman Adam Redmond and defensive lineman Daniel Archibong. Early Monday, before those three were cut, the Bears also released wide receiver Chris Lacy.
Pretty soon, the rest of the cuts will be coming fast and furious for Chicago.
As the day goes on, there will be plenty of players released from other teams who could find their way to a new home sooner rather than later. For the Bears, this period of time is going to be crucial. They need to fill some holes, and other teams are going to provide them some help with that.
As the Chicago Bears make their final roster cuts, Ryan Pace will be looking to add some other veterans as well.
Even after keeping their best players on Tuesday, the Bears will have some serious needs. All throughout training camp, injuries hampered the offensive line. This will be arguably the number one area to watch in the coming days.
Secondly, the Bears have a gaping hole at cornerback. Since releasing Kyle Fuller a few months back, the team has not recovered at that position. They are pretty much guaranteed to add talent at corner in the next couple of days.
Aside from those two spots, the Bears will always keep their eyes open for good talent, regardless of position. We will see what Pace decides to do here in the coming hours, but for now, a few players have already been shown the door. These players are guys the Bears should absolutely take a look at, and ultimately might sign.
