3 players waived — including WR Kevin Shaa — as cuts begin to get down to 53 players – The Denver Post


The Chicago Bears have to narrow their roster to 53 players before Tuesday’s 3 p.m. deadline.

Here are the most recent moves as the Bears assemble their roster and practice squad for the regular season.


The Bears waived defensive back Jon Alexander, offensive lineman Corey Dublin and wide receiver Kevin Shaa.

Shaa signed as an undrafted free agent out of Liberty in May and had three catches for 42 yards in the preseason. The Bears have interesting decisions to make among a wide receivers group that has been affected this preseason by injury.

Alexander also joined the Bears in May as an undrafted free agent from Charlotte and had three tackles and a quarterback hit in the preseason. Dublin, a rookie out of Tulane, signed with the Bears on Aug. 16 after getting a rookie tryout in May, and he played seven snaps in the second preseason game.


The Bears waived offensive lineman Jean Delance with a non-football illness.

Delance signed in May as an undrafted free agent from Florida.
