Safety Anthony Walters returned for a second stint with the Bears late in the 2014 season, but it came to an end on Thursday.
The Bears announced that they have released Walters, who signed with the team in November after failing to make the Cardinals out of training camp.
Walters made the team as an undrafted free agent in 2011 and played in 33 games with the team over the next three seasons. He made one start and made 21 tackles while playing primarily on special teams. He played four more games for Chicago after returning to the team last year, but didn’t record a tackle.
Walters’s departure leaves the Bears with Antrel Rolle, Ryan Mundy and Brock Vereen at safety. Chris Conte left for Tampa as a free agent and unrestricted free agent Danny McCray has yet to find a job for the 2015 season.
