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.
