The Chicago Bears and general manager Ryan Pace received a bit of surprise today.
Just like that one of Pace's offseason signings has retired.
Tight end Jake Butt has decided to hang up his cleats after signing with the Bears this offseason.
As of now the transaction appears on the NFL transaction list but no official announcement has been made.
Butt has dealt with some health issues over his career.
A month ago the Chicago Bears signed tight end Jake Butt. Today Jake Butt retired from the NFL.
