It’s spring cleaning time in the NFL.  And in with the new means out with the old.

For the Bears, the arrival of free-agent tight end Martellus Bennett means that tight end Kellen Davis is no longer needed.

Per a league source, Davis has been cut.

The five-year veteran has been a full-time starter the past two seasons.  But he had been plagued by drops, and now he has been dropped.

He was due to earn a base salary of $2.4 million salary in 2013.  He now becomes an unrestricted free agent.
