John Fox‘s first roster with the Bears will include three quarterbacks, but the third isn’t the one he oversaw in Denver. The Bears sent Zac Dysert back to waivers after picking up the ex-Broncos quarterback last week.
Instead, David Fales will back up Jay Cutler and Jimmy Clausen, as the Bears made their cuts to slash their roster to 53 players, per Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune.
Also among the cuts was third-year defensive end/linebacker David Bass, who played in 20 games the past two seasons. A former seventh-round pick of the Raiders in 2013 with a pick-six to his credit as a rookie in Chicago, Bass has interested suitors and will land somewhere soon, per Nerdy Football’s Dan Pompei (on Twitter).
Here are the rest of Chicago’s final cuts:
- Jonathan Anderson, ILB
- Qumain Black, WR
- Connor Boffeli, OL
- A.J. Cruz, WR (Waived/injured)
- Jacoby Glenn, CB
- Anthony Jefferson, DB (Injured reserve)
- Rashad Lawrence, WR
- Tyler Moore, OL
- Michael Ola, OL
- Ify Omodu, WR
- Gannon Sinclair, TE
- Matthew Wells, ILB
- Terry Williams, DT
- Kyle Woestmann, OLB
