The Chicago Bears made a few roster moves ahead of Sunday's crucial game with the Seattle Seahawks. Most noteably, Sean Jensen at the Chicago Sun-Times reports the team has cut ties with defensive tackle Amobi Okoye and signed offensive lineman Andre Gurode.

Okoye had racked up just seven tackles on the season for the Bears including one sack. Gurode is a veteran Pro Bowler who spent most of his career with the Dallas Cowboys.

The Bears shuffled the deck elsewhere on the roster, signing offensive lineman Derek Dennis and wide receiver Dale Moss. They also cut ties with wide receiver Raymond Radway and guard Chris Riley. Radway hasn't caught a pass all season for the Chicago Bears.

Sunday's game is as close to a must-win for the Bears as they've had all season. They need to keep pace with the San Francisco 49ers who hold the No. 2 playoff spot and the all-important first round playoff bye. The game is equally important to the Seahawks who are clinging to the sixth and final NFC playoff spot.
