The Chicago Bears made a move ahead of final roster cuts, where they added depth along the offensive line.
The Bears made a trade with the Miami Dolphins for veteran guard Dan Feeney, a versatile offensive lineman who has experience playing guard and center. Chicago sent a 2024 sixth-round draft pick to Miami for Feeney.
With starting left guard Teven Jenkins “week-to-week” with a leg injury, this depth was needed. Especially with interior linemen Cody Whitehair and Lucas Patrick battling injuries over the last couple of weeks.
Where things currently stand, Chicago has seven selections in the 2024 NFL draft — all in the first five rounds. Here’s a look at the those picks after the Bears traded for Feeney:
Round 1 (from Panthers)
Round 4 (from Eagles)
As we’ve seen with general manager Ryan Poles, he’s always looking to acquire additional draft capital, including trading back to land more picks.
Defensive end Trevis Gipson also feels like he’s on his way out of Chicago, after the Bears granted him permission to seek a trade. Gipson could be a surprise cut — unless Poles is able to snag a late-round pick for his services.
