NFL Week 1 Odds

The season is finally here and it’s game week

Nothing came of last week’s report that the Chicago Bears “had some discussions about trading WR Earl Bennett,” and he made it through the team’s final roster cuts over the weekend. Bears GM Phil Emery and Bennett downplayed the trade rumor on Monday, but having “discussions” could mean little more than other teams checking in with the Bears to assess Bennett’s availability.

The odds of him being traded while trying to shake off a concussion were minimal anyway, but he is now healthy and practiced in full on Monday, according to Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times. However, it’s not clear yet whether Bennett will be able to play in the season opener Sunday against the Cleveland Browns. Bennett said “the plan” is for him to take part in the game, but coach Marc Trestman said “it may not be plausible” for Bennett to play, because his conditioning may not be up to par.

Bennett has shown promise in the past but it has never come to fruition in more than short bursts. Perhaps Trestman will coax it out of Bennett, but with Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery, Marquess Wilson and Martellus Bennett in the mix for pass-catching duties, Bennett will have his work cut out to find an expanded role in ’13.
