Roster Moves: Bears waive 14 players to get to 53-man roster

The NFL stands for "Not for Long" careers for most players.
The Chicago Bears announced on Tuesday that they have waived 14 players and placed cornerback Tavon Young on injured reserve.
The players that were waived that saw game action last season included receivers Isaiah Coulter and Nsimba Webster, guard Dieter Eiselen, defensive ends Sam Kamara, Charles Snowden and cornerback Thomas Graham Jr..
Others waived were running backs Darrynton Evans and De'Montre Tuggle, receiver Chris Finke, guard Lachavious Simmons, tight end Chase Allen, defensive tackle Micah Dew-Treadway, linebacker DeMarquis Gates and safety A.J. Thomas.
More reactions coming soon on all of these roster moves. More moves could be on the way tomorrow with the waiver period (starting 11 a.m. CT) and, of course trades. The Bears have 7th priority in the waiver claim process.
Interestingly, the Bears only have 22 players left from the previous Nagy regime.
The Bears open up their season against the 49ers in just 12 days.
