Bears RT Larry Borom in question vs. Vikings after going on  reserve/COVID-19 list - Chicago Sun-Times

Despite spending the last three seasons with the Chicago Bears, offensive lineman Larry Borom may not have much longer in the Windy City, according to a team insider.

In the third round of this year’s draft, the Bears selected tackle Kiran Amegadjie from Yale at pick No. 75 overall. They also signed offensive lineman Matt Pryor to a one-year contract worth slightly over $1 million.

Chicago also hired offensive lineman Jake Curhan, who is connected to Shane Waldron, the new offensive coordinator. It’s reasonable to question whether Borom still has a spot in the lineup given these three recent offseason arrivals.

Offensive lineman Larry Borom may not be in the Windy City for much longer, after playing for the Chicago Bears for the previous three seasons, according to a team insider.

The Bears selected tackle Kiran Amegadjie from Yale in the third round of this year’s draft, with pick No. 75 overall. Additionally, they agreed to a one-year contract worth little over $1 million with offensive lineman Matt Pryor.

Additionally, offensive lineman Jake Curhan—who has ties to the new offensive coordinator, Shane Waldron—was hired by Chicago. With these three offseason additions, it’s fair to wonder if Borom still has a spot in the starting lineup.

Will the Chicago Bears Cut Offensive Tackle Larry Borom?

Borom was selected by the Bears in the fifth round of the 2021 NFL Draft. In his three seasons in the league, he has started 23 games out of 39. Due to a number of offensive line injuries in recent years, Chicago has had to rely more on Borom’s versatility, which has turned out to be a useful asset. A little compensation increase as a result of his playing time has also occurred, which Fishbain thinks might influence Chicago’s final roster choices.

Borom received the “proven performance escalator” for his playing time in the last year of his rookie contract, meaning he will earn more over $3 million this season, according to Fishbain.

Would the Bears prefer to use Pryor, who is paid slightly over $1 million and has comparable versatility, and Amegadjie as their backup tackles even though they can definitely fit that contract under the cap? This summer, it will be one of the roster fights to watch. Jake Curhan, a former Seattle Seahawk, will also be considered.

With his experience and his more affordable contract, Pryor might have an advantage going into training camp, which starts on July 19.
