Bears Have Roster Wiggle Room Heading into Meaningless Finale

| September 1st, 2011

I don’t believe, at least I hope, the Bears are not using tonight’s meaningless game against the Cleveland Browns to make any roster decisions of significance for the 2011 campaign.  But since we all need reasons to watch these worthless exhibitions, let’s come up with a couple.

  1. Winston Venable is reportedly fighting for a roster spot as a special teams contributor.  With Dane Sanzenbacher and Kahlil Bell unlikely to add much in that department, the club may roster up someone who lives in the third phase.  (See video above)
  2. The third QB is active on Sundays.  But if the Bears send Nathan Enderle into a football game, that game is over.  Will they slide him to the practice squad, hope he doesn’t venture elsewhere and use that roster slot for a productive contributor?
  3. Who will fill in for Corey Wootton while the Bears await his return?
  4. Who will take the final spot along the offensive line?

I got nothing else.  I frankly expect Lovie Smith to keep everyone out of uniform tonight.  So you know what you should do?  You should vote DaBearsBlog as Chicago’s most valuable sports blogs by CLICKING HERE.
