The Bears released tight end Dante Rosario on Monday, 11 days after reaching a deal to re-sign him.

The move, first pointed out by Fox’s Alex Marvez, was listed in the NFL’s Monday transactions.

The 29-year-old Rosario appeared in 15 regular season games for Chicago in 2013, starting three. According to Pro Football Focus, Rosario played 186 snaps for the Bears last season.

The Bears have been speculated as a team to watch in free agency, given their considerable needs on defense. They were linked to Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett, who re-signed with Seattle on Monday.

The new league year begins on Tuesday.

An eighth-year pro from Oregon, Rosario had stints with San Diego, Denver, Miami and Carolina before signing with Chicago last year.

    They must have a deal lined up for another TE. My guess is a prove it contract with Dustin Keller

    The Bears are going after Jimmy Graham.

    Must have a deal lined up with a different TE. Not sure I’ve ever seen somebody cut so soon after an extension without ever seeing even a practice field.

    Pretty much the best player they had.

    Man, that is cold. You sign the guy eleven days ago, and now cut him. Poor bastard.

    Clearing space to make an offer for Michael Johnson

    This tells me they have another TE who has already unofficially committed to signing with the Bears. No one truly noteworthy though. He’d be a backup and Trestman doesn’t use double tight end formations very often
