News that linebacker David Bass, quarterbacks Zac Dysert and offensive lineman Michael Ola were put on waivers are among the latest news to come out from the Chicago Bears camp.
This was confirmed by the Chicago Tribune .
With these developments, the team is now down to a 53-man roster.
It is expected that the Chicago Bear’s roster will still undergo changes in the coming days as the squad’s general manager Ryan Pace upgrades the team.
Despite playing for 20 games in his first two NFL seasons, B ass may still be eligible to play for the practice squad.
Although this is the first time in his career that he has participated on special teams in his career this pre-season, the Bears had a numbers crunch at outside linebacker.
On the other hand, Dysert’s stay with the Bears was short-lived, as Pace claimed the third-year quarterback off waivers Tuesday, a day after his release from the Denver Broncos.
He had limited playing time in Thursday’s 24-0 preseason victory over the Cleveland Browns, after completing one of his four pass attempts for 9 yards.
For his part, Ola played every position except center, as he started 12 games last season as an injury replacement.
Meanwhile, David Fales, played an outstanding game against the Browns, as he made 14 of 18 passes for 131 yards with two touchdown passes.
With this impressive performance, the Bears may decide to retain him as their No. 3 quarterback as the team heads into Week 1.
In the meantime, the news that the Chicago Bears is overhauling its roster hasn’t affected its performance, the team’s veteran players demonstrated pure grit with a win over the Cleveland Browns, according to the Chicago Bears official website .
Holding the Browns to only 2.7 yards per play, the Bear’s defense posted seven sacks and forced three turnovers, which pleased experienced players in its tune-up win.
“I was out there to help the young guys and keep them motivated,” said outside linebacker Willie Young.
“It’s always fun when you can go out there and take snaps. It’s been a long road for me this year, but obviously back up and running now, so feels good to be out there,” he added.
With this latest win, Chicago Bears fans are excited to hear the latest news from the team at it heads to regular season.
