Bears Release Several College Scouts After NFL Draft, Potential Incident

Whether or not the incident is legitimate, let alone happened at all, is hearsay.

Ryan Poles was a busy GM over NFL Draft weekend. Making a plethora of trades to nearly double the Chicago Bears’ picks was no easy task and he had plenty of help from his scouts in perusing the talent pool. But apparently, that is no longer the case. The Bears have cut ties with several members of their scouting department and a possible incident is a driving force behind the odd move.

According to 670 The Score reporter Chris Emma, the Chicago Bears are parting ways with several scouts. They cut director of college scouting Mark Sadowski, national scout Chris Prescott, and scouting coordinator Bobby Macedo.

Emma adds that scouting department changes are common after the NFL Draft. While that may be the case, it seems there may be more to this particular turnover. There was a rumored incident involving belittling language directed at a Bears draft pick coming from a member of the scouting department.

Whether or not the incident is legitimate, let alone happened at all, is hearsay. It’s possible that Ryan Poles felt the Chicago Bears scouting department needed an overhaul. However, it’s extremely unlikely that two days after the NFL Draft — and Poles’ praise for his team — the Bears would completely reshape their scouting room.
