The Bears' roster cuts are underway, as Nate Collins, Adrian Wilson, Michael Ford and Derricus Purdy have been released.

The Bears began the process of paring down the roster to the 75-man limit by removing defensive tackle Nate Collins, safety Adrian Wilson, and running back Michael Ford, per the tweets of Brad  Biggs:

The deadline to get the roster to 75 is Tuesday, August 26th.

Ford's spot on the roster was in jeopardy once the Bears invested a fourth-round draft pick, a veteran pickup in Shaun Draughn, and a couple other well-heralded youngsters, including Senorise Perry. The Bears added Ego Ferguson and Will Sutton in the draft at tackle and expect to kick Lamarr Houston inside on a few plays; and Wilson was a tire-kicking that didn't work out.

In the time spent getting this part together, the Bears added another to the list - CB Derricus Purdy.

Discuss the cuts, Bears fans - who's next?

Also, an announcement:
Sam and I will be doing our first WCG Stream of the 2014 season tomorrow night at 6 PM CT. We'll be discussing the cuts, the preseason so far, and making our predictions as to the 53-man roster. We'll be streaming pretty much every week from here on out on Sunday.
