The Chicago Bears face a crucial prove-it season in 2020, and there could be a lot of turnover all over the organization if the team fails to reach the postseason once again. A few players in particular stand out as those who are already likely gone in 2021 before a game has even been played in 2020.
3. Allen Robinson
Allen Robinson had one of the best years of his career in 2019 with 1,147 receiving yards. The problem was the team still only went 8-8, and the offense as a whole was dismal for much of the year. He is now on the final year of his deal and is a $15 million cap hit. Robinson hasn't been terrible, but he also hasn't been the receiver who had 1,400 yards and 14 touchdowns in 2015 in Jacksonville. Anthony Miller could surpass Robinson as the top receiver in Chicago in 2020 and, regardless, the veteran's value is nowhere near where it was in 2018. The Bears will likely choose to move on and revamp the position with younger talent.
2. Jimmy Graham
Signing Jimmy Graham to a two-year, $16 million was a bit of a surprise move by the Bears. The veteran tight end only had 447 yards with Green Bay last season and is well past his prime. He stands out as an obvious cut candidate if Ryan Pace is fired following the 2020 season. The Bears also just used a high pick on tight end Cole Kmet and could look to incorporate Adam Shaheen into the offense a bit more. Graham's dead cap value is $3 million in 2021, and the only way he sticks around is if he plays like he did when he wore a New Orleans Saints jersey.
1. Mitchell Trubisky
Mitchell Trubisky has been a massive disappointment since being taken No. 2 overall in the 2017 draft. The Bears declined his fifth-year option this offseason and also acquired Nick Foles. Both of those moves seem to indicate Trubisky is out of the future plans, unless he somehow miraculously morphs into a different player in 2020. He is also Pace's guy, and the GM being fired would likely mean Trubisky would be one of the first players out the door.
