With the Chicago Bears already thin at a couple of positions, the team made a very surprising decision today.
According to NFL insider Adam Schefter, the Bears have released cornerback Desmond Trufant.
There's some circumstances at play here as Trufant hasn't been with the team since August 13 as he left to spend time with his father who ended up passing away two days later on August 15.
It's a big blow though as over the last while the Bears have gone from Kyle Fuller to now Jaylon Johnson and Kindle Vildor.
It's going to be a really tough test for the Bears this season considering their lack of depth at CB, OLine problems and pretty brutal road schedule.
Bears released CB Desmond Trufant today, per source. Trufant left Chicago on Aug. 13 to be with his father, who passed away on Aug. 15, and he remained with his family during camp. Trufant still owed $3.5 million from the Lions, but wants to continue playing.
