Bears Won't Keep Linebacker Tim Shaw

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.
