NFL Cuts: Chicago Bears Release QB Josh McCown, RB Armando Allen

The Chicago Bears have already made a wave cuts as the team works to trim down to 53 players before the 8 p.m. CT deadline on Friday, and now quarterback Josh McCown has been released according to Vaughn McClure of the Chicago Tribune. Jay Cutler and Jason Campbell are the only two QBs on the roster after the move, but Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune says the team will try to sign Matt Blanchard to the practice squad on Saturday.

Other cuts from Friday include FB Tyler Clutts, WR Brittan Golden, S Mark LeGree, CB Greg McCoy, CB Cornelius Brown and RB Armando Allen. CB Isaiah Frey has also been cut, but he may be added to the practice squad on Saturday, while Xavier Adibi will likely be cut before the Friday deadline.
