There is one logical replacement for the Chicago Bears’ nose tackle.
Early Tuesday afternoon, the Chicago Bears made a surprising, but understandable announcement regarding nose tackle Eddie Goldman. Goldman made the difficult decision to opt-out of the 2020 season due to health concerns related to the COVID-19 global pandemic.
Since COVID impacts those with a higher body mass index, it makes sense that offensive and defensive linemen would be the ones considering sitting out the year. Unfortunately for the Bears, Goldman is without question, one of the most underrated players on the defensive side of the ball. His absence will be felt deeply.
