Bears News: Ryan Poles on Chase Claypool's situation: "Wish him luck moving forward"


by - Senior Editor -

The Chicago Bears have placed wide receiver Chase Claypool on the inactive list again for tonight's game against the Washington Commanders.

Claypool has been a disappointment, to say the least, since the Bears traded for him last season.

He has only three catches on 14 targets for 51 yards and a touchdown this season.

Bears general manager Ryan Poles believes this is a learning experience for him and hopefully for Claypool, as he is expected to be traded/released shortly.

"I always look at things from a player’s perspective," Poles said via insider Courtney Cronin. "You have a player going into his free agent year who wants to be productive and help us, and when things aren’t going the right way, sometimes you get emotional, things don’t work out, and you struggle to blend in and keep resilient and stay resilient with the rest of the crew."

Poles wished Claypool luck for the rest of his NFL days.

"I think Chase is going to learn from this situation, we all will, and I wish him luck moving forward throughout his career."

Claypool has three catches on 14 targets for 51 yards and a touchdown this season.
