It wasn’t a good day to be a converted college quarterback with the Bears.
In addition to the previously reported wide receiver Armanti Edwards, the Bears also parted ways with former Northern Illinois quarterback Jordan Lynch.
Lynch was trying to make it as a running back after a standout college career, which saw him rush for more than 4,000 yards and pass for more than 6,000.
The Bears also announced the release of tight end Jeron Mastrud and offensive linemen Dennis Roland and Robert Turner.
Those five moves get them to 70, meaning 17 more will have to come tomorrow.
