Well at least other consistent, starting caliber defensive ends weren't released so that The Amazing Disappearing Anderson could be given a starting job. Oh..wait.
Also: From ESPN Chicago
"There's a chance, however, that Grant could miss some time, according to an NFL spokesman, because the league is looking into possibly disciplining him under its personal conduct policy."
This personal conduct being a 2008 bar shooting. Also still judgement pending on the whole StarCaps business.
So releasing a player to make room for someone who may miss time? Yikes.
