It’s been reported that the ongoing contract dispute between first-round pick Roquan Smith and the Chicago Bears hinges on language regarding the new helmet-leading rule and would allow the team to recoup guaranteed money should he be suspended under it.However David Montgomery Jersey Color Rush , a new report from ESPN’s Dan Graziano says that it isn’t simply related to the new rule but related to language that the Bears have included in multiple first-round picks’ contracts in recent years:And that’s the simple way of putting it, this isn’t just about the new helmet rule, it’s about the team being able void his guarantees for whatever the team decides is harmful to their image:....That is some seriously vague and overbearing language. If, in this instance, Smith, were to come out and say after a game, “You know White David Montgomery Jersey , I think we called a lot of blitzes today but it would have been better to drop back into coverage and we just got beat,” the team could theoretically determine that “breaches the obligation of loyalty to the Club.”And before anyone says “well, this is dragging out, he should just sign it and give up,” consider this: would you sign a contract with this language in it from your employer? Anything that said they could determine what they could withhold your pay for?I think Smith’s camp is in the right to dig in on this issue. Read the whole article and see how the language has affected other negotiations around the league. The Bears aren’t looking good in this latest report. In this 13 part series we’ll take an in depth look at each position group for the Chicago Bears with an eye towards the 2019 season. We’ll speculate on who stays, who goes, and some potential additions we’d like to see general manager Ryan Pace make."Danny Trevathan - Signed through 2019 - Let’s get this out of the way first. There’s no way the Chicago Bears are going to cut a 29-year old that is still producing at a high level when the defense is in their “championship window.” Trevathan was a Pro Bowl alternate Kevin White Jersey , he was their defensive play caller, plus he’s a damn good football player. His cap hit isn’t astronomical at $7,65M in his final year, but don’t rule out a small contract extension if the Bears aren’t comfortable with an in-house option taking over in 2020. Roquan Smith - Signed through 2021 (with a 5th year team option for 2022) - Roquan was on a bunch of All-Rookie teams, he was also a Pro Bowl alternate, and he led the Bears in tackles with 121. He also doesn’t turn 22-years old until April. If his career goes like it looks like it’s going, he’ll be in the Pro Bowl in 2019 with an All Pro team soon to follow. He has the kind of speed that gets him around the ball an awful lot and good things happen when you’re around the ball. Just imagine what having a full offseason with the Bears will do for his preperation.Nick Kwiatkoski - Signed through 2019 - Kwit is a good special teamer and a solid back up 2-down inside backer http://www.thebearslockerroom.com/authentic-aaron-lynch-jersey , but with the recent proven performance escalator kicking his salary up over $2 million for the 2019 season, the Bears may think about making a move. Joel Iyiegbuniwe - Signed through 2021 - Iggy has the athleticism to be a core special teamer moving forward, but he didn’t play much on defense as a rookie. He led the team with 6 solo stops in the third phase, and he led them with 318 snaps in the third phase too. At some point the Bears may want to see if he’s a viable option to take over for Trevathan some day. Jameer Thurman - Signed to a reserve/futures contract - Thurman played defensive back in college at Indiana State, but he played linebacker with the CFL’s Calgary Stampeders the last two seasons. The Bears list him at 6’, 194 pounds, which is on the small side Womens James Daniels Jersey , but he was productive with the Stampeders at linebacker. Josh Woods - Signed to a reserve/futures contract - Woods is another converted DB who was around on the practice squad last year. He’s another smaller ILB at 6’1”, 204, but we’re starting to see this trend around the league with how much teams pass these days. 2019 OUTLOOK - On my latest T Formation Podcast, EJ Snyder talked about inside linebacker as a need for the Bears, mostly because of how the current depth chart is constructed. With Trevathan and Kwiatkoski both coming out of contract in a year there could be a hole there if the Bears aren’t confident in Iggy stepping in. The Bears usually carry four at the position, so if Kwit is traded or cut as a cap casualty they’ll need another player that can fill in this year. Thurman and Woods have the athleticism, but we’ll know about them more once we see them in camp. With limited draft picks Tarik Cohen Jersey , I doubt they address the position with anything more than an undrafted free agent or two. I have a feeling the Bears will roll with the same depth chart as last year, but we might see Iggy get some reps as the first ILB off the bench in 2019.
