While some Bucs were unofficially let go Friday, the Bears are the first team to make their cuts official.

They are doing the cuts in waves.  14 players were dropped Friday afternoon, and the list doesn’t include Chester Taylor.  Chicago still has to drop 13 more players to get down to the 53-man limit.

Here’s the list: WR Onrea Jones, G Johan Asiata, LB Deron Minor, CB Ryan Jones, WR Jimmy Young, OT Josh Davis, FB Eddie Williams, C Alex Linnenkohl, P Spencer Lanning, LB Chris Johnson, WR Andy Fantuz, LB Tressor Baptiste, CB Antareis Bryan, and LS Jake Laptad.

Most of the players here were undrafted rookies. Onrea Jones was once with the Cardinals. Fantuz was a CFL product.  Asiata played for the Bears last year.

    Keep working and you’ll make someone’s squad, boys. We want you to be great for our team just as much as you want to be.

    Not that anyone really cares, but you should probably be more specific than saying “Jones was with the Cardinals” when there’s 2 Jones’s in the list.

    Can one of those 13 be Roy Williams???

    I noticed Roy Williams isn’t on that list … yet

    So many storylines (at least with the media) with the Bears going into this season. Best of luck to them

    they should have tried Fantuz at TE and dumped Desmond Clark

    I can’t believe Alex Linnenkohl is cut and Roy “Alligator Arms” Williams is still in!

    They may have found a gem in Sanzenbacher.

    Wow, Fantuz can’t even make the Bears roster at WR? That plus Henry Burris’ success tells you all you need to know about the CFL.

    Welcome to Denver.

    Please keep Roy Williams.

    Seahawks should pick up G Johan Asiata.

    Hmmmm… Cutler is still on the Bears Roster?

    Probably didn’t notice him sitting on the sidelines alone milking that sulking attitude.

  15. orangeflh says: Sep 2, 2011 4:36 PM

    Easy there, polegojim. Cutler staying with the Bears for another 20 years would be one of the greatest things to ever happen… to every other team in the league.

    Alex Linnenkohl is the best center I have ever seen play College Football. He started every game since he was a freshman and opened up big holes for Quizz Rodgers. One game he broke his nose and had blood gushing all over and he missed two snaps. After the Bears lost the only good offensive lineman they had last season they should at least keep Linnenkohl.

    Back at ‘comeonnowguys’ re CFL………………Ya, the CFL is real crap, huh? Crap like Cameron Wake? What about Warren Moon? What about a hundred of other current and former Pro-Bowl and Hall of Fame players? Ya, you sure know your football.
