The Bears have continued the process of trimming the roster to 75 by parting ways with veteran safety Craig Steltz.

Steltz, a fourth-round pick in 2008, primarily has contributed on special teams over the years, racking up 58 career special-teams tackles in six NFL seasons.

As a vested veteran, Steltz can sign with any team he chooses.  It wouldn’t be a shock if he gets a look-see in Tampa, where the man who served as head coach of the Bears in 2008 has arrived as head coach of the Buccaneers.

The Bears currently have 77 players on the roster.  They must make two additional roster moves by Tuesday at 4:00 p.m. ET.
