The Bears waived defensive end Cheta Ozougwu on Tuesday, the club announced.

The 25-year-old Ozougwu played in the Bears’ final seven games of 2013, notching a sack and forcing a fumble in the club’s overtime win vs. Baltimore. Overall, Ozougwu appeared in nine regular season games for Chicago in the last two seasons, playing 87 snaps for the club, according to Pro Football Focus.

Ozougwu (6-2, 255) was a seventh-round pick of the Texans in 2011. He played collegiately at Rice.

The Bears have added six defensive ends this offseason: Lamarr Houston, Jared Allen, Willie Young, Israel Idonije, Trevor Scott and Austen Lane.

    I’m a Bears fan who watches all their games and I have no idea who this guy is.

    Stick a fork in the bears, they’re done already.

    Decent end, just too much competition on the roster.

    He’ll get picked up.

    Clearing the airwaves for the Cornelius Washington show…or something.

    Cheta has exceptionally long arms and amazing agility for his size.

    Would have kept him over Austen Lane

    I guess the Bears waived Cheta because they got tired of his silly antics.

    Honestly. This guy gets cut or re-signed by the Bears every few months over the past 2 years.

    Its almost as bad as in the latter Lovie years when they would cut or sign Harvey Unga every 6-8 hours

    Probably not a good sign if the first time anyone has heard of you is when you get cut by your team.

    You can’t have a “cheetah” running with Bears. Most likely the Lions, Jaguars, Panthers, or Bengals pick him up

    Probably because of that pic alone

    That pic…that score! 11-54! Good riddens and good luck.
