The Twitter page of Brad Biggs from the Chicago Tribune is abuzz with Bears roster cuts. There have been no surprises yet, but here are the cut-downs upon which G.M. Jerry Angelo has so far settled:
Defensive tackle Mick Williams
Defensive end Barry Turner
Offensive lineman Levi Horn
Offensive lineman James Marten
More interestingly, Biggs indicates that 2009 third-round pick Jarron Gilbert and his agent, Frank Bauer, are preparing for the pool-jumping defensive lineman to get the boot. Bauer tells Biggs he “would not be surprised” if his client is waived.
We closely observed Gilbert in the preseason, and he did not look good. In the team’s exhibition opener against San Diego, Gilbert was single-handedly taken out of plays by Chargers third-string fullback Billy Latsko.
