Apparently, not even God is immune to the pressure of a flat salary cap.
The Bears made the unusual move of getting rid of their team chaplain, according to Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times.
Citing multiple sources, Jensen reported the team “parted ways,” with Ray McElory. No reason was cited for the decision. The former Bears, Colts and Lions cornerback had been with the team more than five years.
There’s no word as to whether the Bears will convene a conclave to replace him, or if the white smoke is just Jay Cutler again.
