Via Chicago Breaking Sports, we learn that linebacker Tim Shaw, who did well on special teams last year, will be waived if he’s not traded:
The Bears actively shopped linebacker Tim Shaw this morning, but have called Shaw and told him they couldn’t make a deal.
A league source confirmed a report by the Tribune on Friday that the Bears are plotting a future without him, but the preference would be to trade him instead of waiving him at the 5 p.m. deadline Saturday.
Shaw set a franchise record with 30 special-teams tackles last season in 15 games after he was signed to fill the roster spot of Brian Urlacher when the middle linebacker went down with a wrist injury in the season opener at Green Bay.
SB Nation Chicago will update this StoryStream™ when further Bears roster moves are announced.
