The Chicago Bears haven't had many departures in the 2024 offseason, but they have certainly had some notable ones. Bears general manager Ryan Poles is armed with the 1st and 9th overall picks in the 2024 NFL Draft, and for the second consecutive offseason, he's had a ton of flexibility to add to his roster via NFL free agency.

And he's taken advantage of it.

Poles has been aggressive in building his roster once again in 2024 as the Bears seemingly prepare for the arrival of USC quarterback Caleb Williams with the #1 overall pick. But there have been casualties along the way. Will the players that have departed the Chicago Bears in NFL free agency be missed or will they fall flat on their face in a new city?

Let's take a look at a handful of players who may be destined to fail in their new spots.

1. D'Onta Foreman, RB (Cleveland Browns)

The fit of D'Onta Foreman with the Cleveland Browns is a pretty good one on paper. Foreman is joining a Browns team that won 11 games last season and has seemingly been able to just plug guys into the running back position and have production.

But with Nick Chubb still working his way back from a devastating knee injury last season, it's possible that too many high expectations will be heaped upon Foreman, who had some great moments for the Bears last year.

What happens if/when Foreman is expected to be the #1 back in Cleveland? Is he going to be able to handle that kind of workload? The biggest workload he has had in the NFL was in 2022 with the Panthers, over 200 touches and over 900 yards from scrimmage.

If Foreman is expected to carry the majority of the load for Cleveland at any point, it may not go well.
