The Chicago Bears have announced the release of three players - DT Tommie Harris, LB Hunter Hillenmeyer, and OT Kevin Shaffer. GM Jerry Angelo said last week the team would start making roster decisions this week, and this is the first.

This decision will undoubtedly have the team looking even harder at potentially drafting a defensive tackle in the first round of this year's Draft.
