With the NFL Draft done and in the rearview mirror, Chicago Bears general manager Ryan Pace must now tackle his next project.
Freeing up cap space.
Well he started that mission on Monday with a roster move.
Pace and the Bears have released left tackle Charles Leno.
Leno has been a starter the past seven years so it's a bit of a surprise move but with almost no cap space to sign their rookies, Pace has to get moving.
Second round pick Teven Jenkins will likely slot in on the left side come the start of the season.
What do you think of the move?
