Per Bears head coach Matt Nagy, nose tackle Eddie Goldman was absent from Bears minicamp today. That said, minicamp is mandatory and Nagy had a conversation with his stud nose tackle.

Goldman missed the 2020 NFL season after opting out due to COVID-19. Goldman was missed a fair amount in 2020, as the Bears total defense fell from 4th overall in 2019 to 14th in 2020. Although it’s hard to say that Goldman was the lone reason, his presence in the middle against the run was still missed.

In 2019, the Bears allowed an average of 3.9 yards per rush. That same number in 2020 grew to 4.1 yards per rush. In addition, the Bears gave up almost a full 200 yards more during the 2020 season on the ground than they did in 2019. The number grew to 1,814 from 1,632 year-over-year.

As indicated by Nagy, Goldman is expected to attend Bears’ training camp when it kicks off at the end of July. In the meantime, the team will deal with Goldman’s absence as they see fit. However, his return to training camp will be a welcome sight after missing the 2020 season.
