The Chicago Bears have cut 14 players from their roster to bring the teams total to 75. Chicago’s decision makers now have until Tuesday at 4:00 pm ET to make one final player cut.
On Monday afternoon, the Chicago front office announced the following cuts:
Safety Tom Zbikowski, receiver Devin Aromashadu, defensive end Kyle Moore, running backCurtis Brinkley, defensive tackle Eric Foster, tackleA.J. Lindeman, center P.J. Lonergan, safetyDerrick Martin, tight end Gabe Miller, tight end Leonard Pope, defensive tackle Brent Russell, linebacker Patrick Trahan, punter Tress Way, and linebacker Lawrence Wilson.
It was a tough round of cuts, especially for third-round pick Zbikowski who spent four seasons with the Ravens and started 11 games last season for the Indianapolis Colts.
Zbikowski is the biggest standout to be cut because of his 2011 boxing career. The cut player chose to box after an NFL lockout left him temporarily unemployed.
After his bouts were done and the NFL resumed play, Zbikowski said he would consider a return to boxing when his NFL career drew to a close.
With the NFL roster deadline quickly approaching, there are most certainly a few Chicago Bears players who are fighting hard and worried about their NFL future.
