The Chicago Bears have announced their final cuts and they have established their final 53 man roster.

The Chicago Bears used the 4:00pm ET deadline to their advantage Saturday, squeezing every bit of time that they could for their final roster decisions.

And while this certainly isn't their permanent 53-player roster, as changes will be made often and early due to injuries, waiver claims, trades, etc., this is where they ended up on Saturday afternoon after all cuts had been made.

Two very important notes: OLB Pernell McPhee and WR Marquess Wilson were moved to the Reserved/ PUP list, meaning they will be OUT for the first six games of the season.
