T.J. Edwards Could Make a Case For a Pro Bowl Bid

The Bears signed linebacker T.J. Edwards to a 3-year deal during the offseason, and it started off pretty well. Through the first 3 games of the season, Edwards had 43 total tackles. This went pretty thankless, as the Bears did not win a single one of those games and the defense was not working together as a whole. But during that time, Edwards was the defense.

Now, the Bears defensive unit is spread out with success and ranks in the top half of the league. Edwards' numbers decreased during the season, but that is mostly because he is actually getting help with playing defense. He has 145 total tackles, 3 interceptions, and 2 fumble recoveries on the season and will look to add to those totals in the finale on Sunday.

Edwards has been a Pro Bowl caliber player for the Bears this season and a leader in the locker room. Nationally, again, it's hard to make a case for much of the Bears roster due to the recency bias of how bad they have been. But the improvements made, much thanks to Edwards on defense, should be worth the acknowledgement. He is another candidate for an alternate spot should the opportunity arise.
