When it comes to playing professional football, athleticism will only get you so far.
Speed will only get you so far.
In order to make an NFL roster, being good at actual football appears to be a requirement.
The Fendi Onobun era is over.

With Onobun no longer a member of the Chicago Bears, that leaves Dante Rosario, Zach Miller and Matthew Mulligan left to compete to be Martellus Bennett's backup.
You can't say the Bears didn't give Onobun a shot, but it was his inability to catch the ball that led to his release.
The Bears could bring in another tight end or two as they do have a couple of spots open on the 90 man roster.
What are your favorite memories of the Fendi Onobun era?
