One of the most irritating things with being a season ticket holder for the Chicago Bears are these preseason games. The tickets cost the same as a regular season ticket and it’s meaningless. But, it is what it is. I’ll be there tonight with my beautiful wife.
Tonight’s game really won’t have much suspense in regards to the roster. Unless something miraculous happens, the roster is essentially set. Despite the Chester Taylor drama from earlier in the week, keeping him was purely a precaution. He makes too much money to be a fourth running back and really doesn’t have a role on special teams. Ohio State wide receiver Dane Sanzenbacher will be a Chicago Bear along with Pitt’s linebacker Dom DeCiccio. Troy’s defensive end Mario Addison has a real shot as well. Having three undrafted rookies would be something, but even two shows how the Chicago Bears value training camp.
I’ll be curious with all the cap room possessed by the Chicago Bears if they don’t pursuit some released veterans. Former Chicago Bears defensive end Alex Brown’s name had popped up, but it’s doubtful. There will be others as well.
I’ll try to Tweet from the game, but cell reception can be shaky. Follow me on Twitter at ChicagoBearJew.
