Bears Cut Popular DT Anthony Adams


New Chicago Bears GM Phil Emery regime made his first roster move on Sunday, notifying popular defensive tackle Anthony Adams that he will be cut.  You can’t be completely surprised that he was cut, having started only 4 games last season, but it’s still a questionable move.

The move leaves the Bears with Matt Toeaina, underwhelming rookie Stephen Paea and practice squad project Jordan Miller to battle it out for the nose tackle position while the Bears are likely to try to re-sign Amobi Okoye to rotate with up and comer Henry Melton at the undertackle position.

Adams came to the Bears as a bargain basement free agent by way of the 49ers back in 2007.  In his five seasons with the Bears he amassed 143 tackles and 4.5 sacks.

The big question now is who will do the Bears pre-game dances:

Thanks for the memories!

    Good move. Adams was dead weight and the Bears need to make moves such as this going forward. The d-line needs to be better and this move is one the goes towards that. We will see who they bring in to replace him but this is in the right direction.
