Bears cut left tackle Jermon Bushrod
The Chicago Bears cut starting left tackle Jermon Bushrod. A two-time Pro Bowl selection, Bushrod, 31, dealt with a concussion and shoulder injury last season. He could be replaced by Charles Leno or Kyle Long. Bushrod was due a $6.4 million base salary and a $100,000 roster bonus this season. "We thank Jermon for his contributions to the Bears," Bears general manager Ryan Pace said. "I have so much respect for how he carries himself on and off the field. He was a locker room leader and contributor in helping the younger players on our team grow. We wish him and his family the best as they move forward."
