Chicago Bears Release WR Rashied Davis

Just a few weeks after returning to the team, the Chicago Bears have released wide receiver Rashied Davis, according to Jeff Dickerson of ESPN Chicago. Davis was banged up during training camp and never managed to land a spot on Chicago's depth chart.

Davis, 33, broke into the league with the Bears in 2006, eventually spending five years with Chicago. His best numbers came in 2008, when he caught 35 balls for 445 yards and two touchdowns, in addition to being an effective player on special teams.

After spending the 2011 season with the Detroit Lions, Davis was hoping to return to the Bears this season, but the team's depth chart is just too strong as this point. For now, it appears that Lovie Smith will go with Brandon Marshall, Devin Hester, Earl Bennett, Alshon Jeffery, Dane Sanzenbacher and Eric Weems on the wide receiver depth chart.
