The Bears released safety Antrel Rolle on Sunday.
ESPN's Adam Schefter was the first to report the move. Rolle tweeted the following out minutes later.
Rolle battled injuries and appeared in just seven games with the Bears last season, coming to Chicago after five seasons with the New York Giants. He made 35 total tackles and recorded one pass defensed.
The Bears have six other safeties on their current roster and added two more during this weekend's draft, picking Miami's Deon Bush in the fourth round and William & Mary's DeAndre Houston-Carson in the sixth round.
My kingdom for a healthy right ankle.
After Khalil Mack hurt his ankle during the Bears' 31-28 loss to Miami last Sunday, the team will reportedly send Mack for further testing:
While we still don't know exactly what this entails, it's obviously not great news. Mack's been the leader of a defense that ranks as one of -- if not the -- NFL's best. He leads the team in sacks (5) -- for which he's also in the top-10 of all defensive players in the NFL-- and forced fumbles (4).
And who just so happens to be coming to Soldier Field next Sunday? Tom Brady! Rob Gronkowski! A Patriots team that has succeeded for YEARS on exploiting bad linebacker matchups! Terrific.
David Haugh, Adam Jahns and Patrick Finley join Kap on the panel. The Bears lose a rough one in Miami as Matt Nagy goes conservative at the end zone. Does the rookie coach deserve all of the blame? Dave Wannstedt joins the guys to discuss.
Plus the guys discuss the Cubs’ newest hitting coach/scapegoat, Brandon Saad’s upcoming healthy scratch and Bobby Portis betting on himself this season.
