The Bears announced a handful of moves on Monday morning, with the most notable being that safety Jordan Lucas has decided to opt-out of the 2020 NFL season.

Lucas is the second player on the roster to opt-out, along with defensive tackle Eddie Goldman. The safety signed as a free agent back in March, having previously spent time mostly as a special teams guy for the Dolphins and Chiefs.

Additionally, the team announced that defensive tackle John Jenkins and tight end Eric Saubert have both been taken off the reserve/COVID-19 list. Jenkins will be tasked with filling much of the role that Goldman's absence creates.
Lastly, the team waived offensive lineman Dino Boyd. An undrafted free agent who originally signed with Kansas City in 2019, Boyd spent the final seven weeks of 2019 as a member of the Bears' practice squad.
