The Chicago Bears started Friday with plenty of decisions to make regarding the makeup of the team’s 53-man season-opening roster.
Decisions need to be made by Saturday at 3 p.m. for the Bears – and the NFL’s 31 other teams – as their trek to trim their respective rosters to 53 is officially underway. The Bears made a pair of cuts earlier in the week, parting ties with linebacker Alex Scearce and defensive lineman Kapron Lewis-Moore.
We’ll continue to track the Bears’ cuts right here (so keep checking back in), as we get down to Saturday’s deadline.
