Bears Roster Cuts: Bears Finalize Cuts, Reach 53-Man Roster Limit

After cutting quarterback Josh McCown and running back Armando Allen, and trading Tyler Clutts to the Houston Texans this morning, the Chicago Bears made a slew of cuts and transactions late Friday to cut their roster to 53 players.

McCown was let go as the Bears have decided to open the season with two quarterbacks, Jay Cutler and Jason Campbell.

Clutts was traded to the Texans for cornerback Sherrick McManus.

Other cuts from Friday included: receivers Joe Anderson, Terrium Crump and Brittan Golden; tackles Cory Brandon, James Brown and A.J. Greene; cornerbacks Cornelius Brown, Isaiah Frey and Greg McCoy; safety Mark LeGree; guard Ricky Hendry; tight end Brandon Venson; defensive tackle Jordan Miller; defensive end Aston Whiteside; and linebacker Jabara Williams.

The Bears also terminated the contracts of four veterans: cornerback Jonathan Wilhite, defensive end Chauncey Davis, receiver Rashied Davis and linebacker Xavier Adibi.

Defensive tackle Nate Collins, who is suspended for the first game of the regular season, does not count against the team's 53-man roster.
