Cato June's short stay in Chicago

Two weeks ago, the Bears dusted off veteran linebacker Cato June, a Super Bowl winner with the Colts in 2006 and a member of the Bucs’ offseason veteran purge.

June had signed with the Texans, landed on injured reserve with a broken forearm, and he quietly was released from IR.

June now has not-so-quietly been released by the Bears.

The Bears announced the move today, while also announcing that tackle James Marten has been promoted to the active roster.

Marten, a third-round pick of the Cowboys in 2007, has spent the entire season and most of 2008 on the Bears’ practice squad. 

June participated on special teams with the Bears in Week 13, and he was inactive during a Week 14 loss to the Packers.

    Hope they keep on sucking too. Gives us Buc fans at least something extra to look forward to at draft time.

    Unfortunately I can not call a spade a club. I have to call a spade a spade. You are most correct.

    Florio:
    I love you and all, but wow…sometimes I think you just throw out some made up info just to complete a paragraph or to make the article reach a certain word count.
    “Marten, a third-round pick of the Cowboys in 2007, has spent the entire season and most of 2008 on the Bears’ practice squad. ”
    ACTUALLY…Marten spent the 2008-09 season on the Oakland Raiders practice squad. The Raiders cut him after Training Camp this year and then the Bears signed him to their practice squad.
    Thanks
