Bears cut Antrel Rolle and Matt Slauson

The Chicago Bears cut safety Antrel Rolle and offensive guard Matt Slauson. “We thank Matt and Antrel for the dedication and leadership they brought to our organization,” Bears general manager Ryan Pace said.  “Both men did everything we asked of them.  Part of growing as a team is making difficult decisions like the ones we made today.  We never take them lightly given the respect we have for everyone who has put on a Bears uniform.  We wish each of them the very best as they move forward.” Slauson, 30, started every game last season. He was due $2.887 million this year. Rolle, 33, was due a $2.4 million base salary next season. Rolle played in seven games last season and was placed on injured reserve with a knee injury.
