Either way, this is an unexcused absence for Goldman. The good news is that Nagy expects Goldman to report for the start of training camp next month.
It’s worth mentioning that Goldman opted out of the 2020 season due to the pandemic.
Goldman, 27, is a former second-round pick of the Bears back in 2015. He was entering the final year of his four-year, $5.686 million contract when he agreed to a four-year contract extension worth over $42 million that included $25 million guaranteed.
In 2019, Goldman appeared in 15 games for the Bears and recorded 29 tackles and a sack. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 35 interior defender out of 118 qualifying players.
