    Brad Biggs, Chicago Tribune Writer, tweeted Josh is fielding punts with Hester today. Great news he is getting some looks on special teams.

    Returned a punt for 10 yards tonight.


    I'm kind of a big deal!

    Yeah, I think that teams keep 5-6 WRs, so while I hope he makes it, it doesn't look good. Gotta turn some heads as a backup (to Hester) PR/KR.

    I think he would probably be thrilled to make the practice squad. That has to be the real goal at this point.

    He had 2 returns for a total of 18 yards. Special Teams and/or Practice Squad are very real goals and a great way to stick with the team.

    Re: Josh Lenz

    Lenz survived the first round of cuts. Still a longshot to make team probably but hopefully he can sneak onto the practice squad.

    Bears are announcing most of their cuts today, two days ahead of league deadline. Still one more player to be cut.

    Perhaps significant that Aromashadu (sp?) was cut ahead of Lenz. Good news.

    I think a few years ago aromashodu was cut because he wasn't willing to learn to play slot receiver or do special teams. Bad attitude iirc.

    Re: Josh Lenz

    I think Lenz is going to get some serious playing time in the final preseason game. If he can do something special, maybe he makes the practice team at worst. There is still a crazy chance that the Bears part ways with Devin Hester altogether to free up cap space. That could also be in his favor.

    Re: Josh Lenz

    How many WR do NFL teams typically hold on their 53-man? I was thinking 6-7?

    Re: Josh Lenz

    Hester won't get cut, he's in the final year of his contract. Lenz won't make the final roster but he's got a decent shot at the practice squad, since they've been playing him on special teams. Marshall, Jeffrey, Bennet, Wilson and Hester are locked in so there's probably room for one more and a practice squad guy.

    Re: Josh Lenz

    Chicago Bears | Team roster

    He is one of 9 receivers on the roster. Bolded are locks to make the roster. (Bears fans can help me out with this, I really don't know these lower depth chart guys)

    Alshon Jeffrey
    Brandon Marshall
    Earl Bennet

    Hester (not even listed as WR though, just as a KR/PR) makes $10 million per year according to http://www.spotrac.com/nfl/chicago-bears/

    Joe Anderson- UDFA last year, 2 catches 27 yards this preseason

    Brittan Golden- UDFA last year, 3 catches 20 yards this preseason

    Torrence Toliver- UDFA last year, 1 catch 14 yards this preseason

    Eric Weems- 26 receptions over 6 regular seasons in NFL for 232 yards (makes $1.4 million)

    Marquess Wilson- 7th round draft pick this year, was the receiver who had the run in with Mike Leach at washington, didn't play last year because he quit the team


    For some reason they don't have stats for Wilson or Lenz from this preseason. His odds are a lot better than I previously thought to make the roster, those are some bad receivers on the bottom of that depth chart. Lenz's contract is for $500,000 which is comparable to everyone else on the bottom list except Weems.
