We have our first somewhat surprising Chicago Bears roster casualty of the day. Defensive lineman Mario Edwards, who many penciled as the likely starting three-tech at the beginning of the offseason, was cut.
Edwards had a rough training camp. He was injured and underwent a position change while other defensive linemen like Trevon Coley thrived. I predicted Edwards could get his walking papers on Episode 4 of The Bears Talk Podcast, which you can check out below (make sure you subscribe, rate and review!):
Edwards, 28, appeared in 27 games for the Chicago Bears over the last two seasons. He was productive from a reserve role, totaling six sacks, including four in the 2020 season.
We’ll continue to monitor all of the Bears’ roster cuts throughout Tuesday.
