The Bears removed Roquan Smith from the PUP list Wednesday, opening the door to potential fines if Smith continues to hold out for a new contract. Smith is now in a high-stakes gamble, particularly for a player without an agent, Hub Arkush writes.
Roquan Smith has done a nice job getting the upper hand publicly in these high-stakes negotiations with the Chicago Bears, but you have to wonder if he has bitten off more than he can chew this time, Hub Arkush writes.
The Bears practiced at Soldier Field on Tuesday, several days ahead of their first preseason game. Another wide receiver went down with an injury, and the offense had mixed results. Here's what we saw Tuesday.
Bears tackle Teven Jenkins made his return to practice and several key wide receivers are now sidelined by injuries. Following Saturday's developments, the depth chart is more muddled than ever at those positions, writes Hub Arkush.
