Chicago Bears release tight end Kyle Adams

USA TODAY Sports

The Chicago Bears have released tight end Kyle Adams to make room for the newly acquired Dante Rosario.

Earlier today the Chicago Bears continued tweaking their 53 man roster by trading for tight end Dante Rosario of the Dallas Cowboys. The subsequent move was cutting 3rd year pro, Kyle Adams.

Adams had 4 career receptions, all from last season, but he did provide some versatility for the Bears as he was able to line up in an H-Back role. With Martellus Bennett entrenched as the #1 TE, and Steve Maneri locked into the blocking TE role, Adams would have only seen the field on special teams.

Rosario, entering his 7th season, is a far more accomplished player than Adams. He has 99 receptions in his career, and he has special teams experience. He will provide an athletic pass catching option if the Bears run some double TE sets. That is of course until the great Fendi Onobun is activated from the practice squad...

What are your memories of the Kyle Adams era?
