Chicago Bears DT Sedrick Ellis retires

Grant Halverson

Chicago Bears defensive tackle Sedrick Ellis did not report to training camp today, and has informed the team he plans to retire.

Sedrick Ellis wasn't even in town long enough to have a a picture in his Bears uniform made available to SBNation. As reported by numerous sources, Ellis is retiring.

Too bad Ellis didn't come to this conclusion a few weeks ago. I wonder if he had, would Israel Idonije still be a member of the Chicago Bears? From the Pride Of Detroit,

...the Lions signed him (Izzy) for the veteran's minimum ($940,000). His deal included a $65,000 signing bonus, meaning the total worth of his one-year contract is $1.005 million.

Here's some info on Ellis' deal from Brad Biggs.

With Ellis walking away, the Bears now have a roster opening.

What do you think about this latest camp development?
