    I honestly expected them to cut Wilson. He's never been the same player since his achilles injury.

    Waiving Collins is a huge surprise because I thought he performed well in TC. With him gone it leaves us very very thin at DT.

    We've got Ratliff and Paea as starters and then two rookies who are clearly not NFL ready. That's a scary thought.

    none of these are a surprise, except for maybe Collins, and only b/c of how high they were on him last year. Guess that inj isn't 100%?

    Wilson, Collins among 9 cuts

    The Bears on Sunday began the process of reaching the NFL's 75-man roster limit by releasing nine players, including veteran safety Adrian Wilson and defensive tackle Nate Collins.

    The Bears on Sunday began the process of reaching the NFL's 75-man roster limit by releasing nine players, including veteran safety Adrian Wilson[​IMG] and defensive tackle Nate Collins[​IMG].
    Wilson, 34, signed with the Bears on June 23. He was voted to five Pro Bowls during 12 seasons with the Arizona Cardinals from 2001-12, but missed all of last season with a leg injury after joining the New England Patriots.
    Collins appeared in 14 games with two starts for the Bears the past two seasons, recording 25 tackles and one sack. He played in the first five contests last year before suffering a torn ACL last Oct. 6 in a loss to the New Orleans Saints.
    During the offseason, the Bears addressed the defensive tackle position by re-signing Jeremiah Ratliff[​IMG] and selecting Ego Ferguson[​IMG] and Will Sutton[​IMG] in the second and third rounds of the draft.
    The Bears also waived second-year running back Michael Ford[​IMG], who appeared in 12 games as a rookie last season after earning a roster spot as an undrafted free agent. Coach Marc Trestman acknowledged last week that Ford was behind Shaun Draughn[​IMG] and rookie fourth-round pick Ka'Deem Carey[​IMG] in the competition for backup positions behind starter Matt Forte[​IMG].
    Other players waived Sunday included cornerbacks Derricus Purdy[​IMG] and Peyton Thompson[​IMG], guard/center Dylan Gandy[​IMG], tackle Joe Long[​IMG], and receivers Greg Herd[​IMG] and Kofi Hughes[​IMG].
    The Bears must trim six more players by 3 pm Tuesday to reach the NFL's mandatory 75-man roster limit. Teams must then reach the 53-man limit by 5 pm Saturday.

    Pretty safe to say that Vereen, Mundy, McCray, and Conte are in. Question is now if someone like Steltz sticks for STs.

    Not that I agree completely but I'm also not shocked by them releasing Wilson and Collins now so they have a shot at catching on elsewhere.

    Mundy won the start at SS and we need STeam guys. Wilson isn't one so that leaves him out.

    Collins has been stuck with the 3rd team so the handwriting was on the wall. Ego and Sutton are the keepers as expected and in addition the play of the DEs has been too good not to keep the extra DL there and also add a player or two to STeams like Lane and or Washington. Bass is likely to be let go next go round.

    My Guess next 6 cuts
    WR: Edwards
    OL: Boggs
    S: MD Jennings
    CB: Hurst
    DE: Robertson
    hung up between a TE, WR, or DT but probably either Mastrud, Moss, or Pegues respectively
