The Chicago Bears were already planning on moving on from defensive back D.J. Moore, but they may have to find a replacement for Kelvin Hayden as well.

According to Jeff Dickerson of ESPNChicago.com, Hayden is expected to explore his options when free agency begins next Tuesday.

Hayden passed Moore on the depth chart and became the Bears primary nickel cornerback in addition to serving as backup to Tim Jennings and Charles Tillman last season. He started two games and made 37 tackles with an interception and five passes defensed last season for the Bears.

With Zach Bowman also scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent, the Bears could end up seeing many new faces in their secondary next season behind Jennings and Tillman.

    Tim Jennings and Tillman, one of the best cornerback duo’s in the NFL. Hope Hayden finds a team that’s a good fit for him.

    Not sure why they’re getting rid of Moore…the guy was a playmaker and decent nickel. It seems we are now even more in need of his services with Hayden bolting.

    i hope he stays, but i think he is unhappy at nickel. Didn’t he play on the outside before he was injured in indy?
