The Bears also formally severed ties with Defensive Tackle Anthony Adams, a move that [...]

Bears release Adams, Omiyale

The Chicago Bears have released veteran defensive tackle Anthony Adams and offensive lineman Frank Omiyale. The moves announced Thursday were hardly surprising since their roles decreased last season. Adams went from making 16 starts in 2010 to four stars last season, his fifth year in Chicago.

Which Bears UFAs will be back?
