The Chicago Bears have released safety Tom Zbikowski, a league source confirmed.

Zbikowski ranked low on the depth chart.

He was signed to a one-year contract after starting 11 games last season for the Indianapolis Colts.

Zbikowski is a former Baltimore Ravens third-round draft pick from Notre Dame.

Zbikowski hadn't gotten much playing time in the preseason, including a win over the Oakland Raiders.
