The NFL’s waiver wire officially lists Khalil Mack as having been traded to the Bears, and Chicago has made the other moves necessary to get down to the 53-player roster limit.

Mack will, of course, be the biggest name of today’s transactions, and maybe the biggest move of the year in the NFL. But the Bears also made a host of other moves:

Players waived were Dejon Allen, Abdullah Anderson, Jonathan Anderson, DeMarcus Ayers, Tanner Carew, Rashard Fant, John Franklin, Tanner Gentry, Doran Grant, Brandon Greene, Ro'Derrick Hoskins, Garrett Johnson, Malachi Jones, Michael Joseph, Cre'von LeBlanc, Johnathon Mincy, Taquan Mizzell, Jordan Morgan, Ryan Nall, Elijah Norris, Nick Orr, Will Pericak, Colin Thompson, John Timu, Cavon Walker, Ryan Winslow and Josh Woods.

Vested veterans released were Tyler Bray, Knile Davis, Kasim Edebali, Bennie Fowler, John Jenkins, Matt McCants and Nicholas Williams.

  1. Say what you want about the Mack trade, im super glad! Its about time the Bears get serious. Im 55 so we need a Superbowl before im gone.

  2. Way to go Gruden. Open up a spot for Arden Key, create salary cap space and get draft picks to help build the Raiders.

    In trading Mack to the Bears, the Raiders are getting first-round draft picks in 2019 and 2020, a third-rounder in 2020 and a sixth-rounder in 2019, Rapoport reported. In addition to Mack, the Bears also received a 2020 second-round pick and a conditional 2020 fifth-round selection from the Raiders, per Rapoport.

  3. I am wearing my ‘DA BEARS’ shirt in SoCal right now. Since we now have two teams here I have been reluctant to wear it. On March 17th we all get to be Irish for a day and today, as in 1985, we all get to be Bears fans for a day!

    They might as well there isn’t a quarter back worth paying on the roster now.
