Chicago Bears roster cuts following 2021 training camp

NFL teams are cutting down to the 53-player maximum. We’ll break down the moves as the Chicago Bears sort out their roster decisions.

Las Vegas or Chicago: Who is more likely to make the NFL Postseason?

The Chicago Bears enter the 2021 season hoping to present Justin Fields as their quarterback of the future, even though Andy Dalton will get the nod Week 1 against the Los Angeles Rams. The most intriguing position outside of quarterback will be tight end. Can the Bears use Cole Kmet as a dynamic weapon or will they have to play Jimmy Graham more than they want to? Chicago’s defense under new coordinator Sean Desai is also in the spotlight after seeing its play decline in the second half of last season.

*Player who was waived with an injury designation and has reverted back to the team’s injured reserve list
