The Chicago Bears have made a decision on the future of their offensive line, as reports have come out of Halas Hall that they have been hearing offers to move OT Teven Jenkins. The recent addition of OT Riley Reiff seems to be in correlation with this potential trade of Jenkins. Jenkins was the 39 overall pick for the Bears in the 2021 NFL Draft, but has failed to live up to expectations thus far. His rookie campaign was plagued with injuries, forcing him to play in just six games, while starting in only two. In the two games that Jenkins was active, his play was unimpressive. Jenkins has recently made Bears training camp headlines, missing three consecutive practices last week due to a mysterious conflict. Coach Matt Eberflus explained to the media that his absences were related to disputes with some of the coaching staff. This incident could have stemmed from the fact that he was relegated to second team snaps during training camp, due to the breakout play of fellow lineman, Braxton Jones. Numerous rumors around the Bears organization suggest that Jenkins has been dealing with character issues, making him appealing for the new Bears coaching staff. With some fair depth at the offensive tackle position now, it seems inevitable that Jenkins is moved before the season. It would be interesting to see what kind of returns the Bears can get back, considering his young talent but questionable behavior.
