    How do you waive (or for that matter start a post for) a guy whose name you can't say nor spell? I suppose a dear John letter.

    We are starting to whittle down the number of DE's it looks like.

    The Bears waived defensive end Cheta Ozougwu on Tuesday, the club announced.
    The 25-year-old Ozougwu played in the Bears’ final seven games of 2013, notching a sack and forcing a fumble in the club’s overtime win vs. Baltimore. Overall, Ozougwu appeared in nine regular season games for Chicago in the last two seasons, playing 87 snaps for the club, according to Pro Football Focus.
    Ozougwu (6-2, 255) was a seventh-round pick of the Texans in 2011. He played collegiately at Rice.
    The Bears have added six defensive ends this offseason: Lamarr Houston, Jared Allen, Willie Young, Israel Idonije, Trevor Scott and Austen Lane.

    Nice that the bears are giving him a chance to catch on somewhere else.

    Geez houston! It's pronounced Jones. Come one man anyone can see that. He just spells it a little different is all.

    How many times have we cut this guy? It seems like we cut him and sign him and cut him and sign him. He's the new Harvey Unga.

    When they file the papers, the league keeps coming back and saying, "You spelled his name wrong. There is no such guy. He is still on your roster until you file the right papers."
    They keep trying though. One time they were only off by one letter.

    Unga, I remember him. Now his name IS pronounced Ozougwu. Heavy accent on the last syllable please.

    Same guy huh? That explains it. After the third try they had Unga figured out, so he went with something a little more complicated.

    Nah, it was Unga all along. He just put on 25lbs and bought a pair of 2" lifts.

    That's smart. In case he loses the first one.

    Well then they'd just make him a squib kick specialist. Be a little easier to top the ball that way.
