3 Bears who voted to remain in the roster through Week 2 of preseason
The Chicago Bears defeated the Seattle Seahawks 27-11 and went unbeaten last season. Here are three names who have championed the 53-man squad.
Week 2 of the preseason started Thursday night with the Chicago Bears Travel to the Pacific Northwest to take on the Seattle Seahawks. The week before, the Bears defeated the Kansas City Chiefs. Now Chicago is undefeated (yes, we know it’s preseason).
The Bears defeated the Seahawks 27-11 and improved to a 2-0 record. General manager Ryan Poles and head coach Matt Eberflus will have some questions to answer as they have to reduce the roster to 80 players by Tuesday, August 23.
Here are three players who may have improved their opening week roster chances based on their performance against the Seahawks.
3. WR Isaiah Coulter could help the Bears’ lack of pass catchers
It’s no secret that Chicago’s wide receiver room is far from crowded. There is not much left behind Darnell Mooney, who forged a close relationship with starting quarterback Justin Fields over the past year. They brought in N’Keal Harry, former New England Patriots first-round pick, but he’s already out through injury.
Looking at Chicago’s passing game, Isaiah Coulter, the Houston Texans’ former fifth-round pick in 2020, was the night’s leading receiver. Coulter recorded three receptions for a team high of 39 yards.
Coulter should have had more mileage and another catch on the stat sheet since that game was deemed incomplete in the second quarter and the Bears didn’t challenge it.
The Bears will need as much depth as possible at wide receiver, especially if they want Fields to make a positive leap in his sophomore NFL season. Coulter could be a good depth play for the Bears’ offense.
