The Chicago Bears’ Initial 53-Man Roster for the 2020 Season is Out

Chicago Bears

The Chicago Bears’ 101st season in the NFL is set to kick off a week from tomorrow.

Things could change between now and then. But for the moment, this is the 53-man roster the Bears will open with in 2020:

Quarterback (2)

•   Mitchell Trubisky
•   Nick Foles

ICYMI: Trubisky beat out Foles for the QB1 gig.

Running back (4)

•   David Montgomery
•   Tarik Cohen
•   Ryan Nall
•   Cordarrelle Patterson

David Montgomery is nursing a groin injury that could keep him out of Week 1. Let’s keep an eye on the Bears, who could stand to add running back depth to their roster via the waiver wire..

Wide Receivers (6)

•   Allen Robinson II
•   Anthony Miller
•   Ted Gin Jr.
•   Darnell Mooney (rookie)
•   Riley Ridley
•   Javon Wims

Still waiting for an Allen Robinson extension…

Tight ends (5)

•   Jimmy Graham
•   Cole Kmet (rookie)
•   Demetrius Harris
•   Eric Saubert
•   J.P. Holtz

Hey, the Bears didn’t construct an entire roster of tight ends. That’s a win!

Offensive line (9)

•   Charles Leno Jr.
•   Cody Whitehair
•   James Daniels
•   Germain Ifedi
•   Bobby Massie
•   Alex Bars
•   Rashaad Coward
•   Jason Spriggs
•   Arlington Hambright (rookie)

Defensive line (5)

•   Akiem Hicks
•   Roy Robertson-Harris
•   Bilal Nichols
•   Brent Urban
•   John Jenkins

I miss seeing Eddie Goldman’s name in this group. (ICYMI: He opted out of playing in 2020.)

Edge rushers (5)

•   Khalil Mack
•   Robert Quinn
•   Trevis Gipson (rookie)
•   James Vaughters
•   Barkevious Mingo

Inside Linebackers (4)

•   Roquan Smith
•   Danny Trevathan
•   Joel Iyiegbuniwe
•   Josh Woods

Cornerbacks (5)

•   Kyle Fuller
•   Jaylon Johnson (rookie)
•   Buster Skrine
•   Duke Shelley
•   Kindle Vildor (rookie)

Safeties (5)

•   Eddie Jackson
•   Tashaun Gipson Sr.
•   Deon Bush
•   DeAndre Houston-Carson
•   Sherrick McManis
•   *Marqui Christian (suspended, so he doesn’t count against the 53-man roster)

Special teams (3)

•   Eddie Piñeiro (kicker)
•   Pat O’Donnell (punter)
•   Patrick Scales (long-snapper)

We’ll have more on the early roster construction later. Enjoy the rest of your Saturday!
