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.
