Chicago Bears must sign XFL standout TE Donald Parham By Ryan Heckman - March 24th, 2020
The Chicago Bears still have voids in the roster, and going after an XFL standout in the coming days would help them tremendously.
For a shot period of time, Chicago Bears fans still had a little glimmer of hope to be able to watch some football. After the entire sports world went on hold due to the COVID-19 crisis, folks were left wondering what would happen with the Inaugural season of the brand-new XFL.
Of course, it was announced a few days ago that the league’s first season would officially be canceled. This was obviously the correct decision, but it also leaves us with big-time NFL implications. Starting today, XFL players are free to sign with NFL teams, which makes the free agency period even more interesting now.
There are a few notable names which fans have called for, as far as the Bears bringing in XFL standouts. Quarterback P.J. Walker is one guy to watch. But, after the Bears pulled off a trade for Nick Foles last week, I wonder if they’d be in on Walker.
One of the players I believe general manager Ryan Pace has to pursue is tight end Donald Parham of the Dallas Renegades. Chicago still has a weakness at tight end, even though they lead the league with players under contract at the position.
Donald Parham was a stud at TE, and I loved watching him make plays. But he signed with the Chargers. He is 6'8" and when I watched him this past season I thought he'd make a great pickup for the Bears. He's a youngster. Only 22 years old. But yeah, he's signed.
