Chicago Bears 2013 Roster: The Final 53

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Bears are down to their initial 53 man roster.

The Bears started with 90 players entering training camp and the preseason. Over that time, players were added and dropped, cuts were made, and practices and games were had. Now, finally, the Bears stand with their (initial) 53-man roster.

I say "initial" because once the waiver period ends, there could be even more adds and drops, but from this point on, the roster can't expand beyond 53. With that, here are the 53 men on the initial roster.
