One of the most difficult times of the year is seeing NFL players being cut from rosters, especially those that you know or have rooted for personally.  But we also know that the NFL is a business, so for those who've been released from Chicago, we hope you land on your feet and are able to sign with another team.

As of Monday morning, the Bears have trimmed their roster down to 76 players, which means they have one more to go to get to 75 before Tuesday's 4pm deadline.
