Grading the Chicago Bears’ 53-man roster

Chicago Bears

The Chicago Bears announced their initial 53-man roster Tuesday, and for the most part, there weren’t many surprises about who made the team.

Sure, most Bears fans expected veteran guard Michael Schofield to make the roster, and perhaps Trevon Coley was a disappointing cut. But there’s still a chance one or both players could make their way back to Chicago via the practice squad or a mid-week signing.

Remember: wide receiver N’Keal Harry had to be on the initial 53-man roster to allow the Bears to activate him at some point in the regular season. He’ll be stashed on injured reserve in the coming days, which will open a roster spot for a player like Schofield or Coley.

Let’s dive into the Chicago Bears’ 53-man roster and issue some grades.
