Bears Training Camp 2012: Chicago Releases TE Draylen Ross

The Chicago Bears released tight end Draylen Ross on Wednesday, according to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune. The move brings Chicago's total training camp roster down to 89 players, ending the tight end's relatively short stint with the team.


O'Donnell: When Do We Worry About Bears LB Brian Urlacher's Injury?

Initially signed as an undrafted free agent by the Bears in 2011, he spent the final nine weeks of the 2011 season on Chicago's practice squad, but he never appeared in an NFL game. The product of North Texas was never able to really establish himself among the team's tight ends, and now he's the third player to leave the club this week.

Entering Thursday night's preseason opener against the Denver Broncos, the Bears still have five tight ends on the roster. Biggs speculates that as many as four of those players could ultimately make the 53-man active roster for the beginning of the regular season.
