After trading FB Tyler Clutts to the Texans for CB Sherrick McManis earlier in the day, the Bears made 22 player moves to get down to the 53-man roster limit.
The team waived RB Armando Allen, WR Joe Anderson, OT Cory Brandon, CB Cornelius Brown, OT James Brown, WR Terriun Crump, CB Isaiah Frey, WR Brittan Golden, OT A.J. Greene, OG Ricky Henry, S Mark LeGree, CB-KR Greg McCoy, DT Jordan Miller, TE Brandon Venson, DE Aston Whiteside and LB Jabara Williams.
The Bears also terminated the contracts of vested veterans LB Xavier Adibi, DE Chauncey Davis, WR Rashied Davis, QB Josh McCown and DB Jonathan Wilhite.
And, DT Nate Collins was placed on the reserve/suspended list. He was suspended one game for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy.
