The Chicago Bears made some post draft cuts to fit in their undrafted free agents
With the addition of new draftees comes a loss for others who were currently on the roster. You can only carry 90 players, and with the Bears draft picks and the signing of undrafted free agents, they were over that limit. They needed to make some roster cuts to fit in all of their undrafted free agents, and they did just that on Monday.
Bralon Addison is an undersized scatback who was on the roster last year but was never active for a game. It is easy to think that Tarik Cohen tempered their expectations of Addison. Dres Anderson was an undrafted free agent who found his way onto the Bears practice squad after some time in San Francisco. He has some knee issues and was very unlikely to make any impact.

Da’Vante Bausby and Jacoby Glenn are both cornerbacks, and many will remember Glenn from the rotating door at cornerback last season. Glenn started in three games and appeared in seven. Given that the team did not address the position in the draft, these may be the most curious.
David Cobb has bounced around the league and was already a longshot to make the roster. The Bears added two undrafted free agents as backs and Addison and Cobb were both probably easy cuts to make.
Justin Perillo is the last one. While he was signed on by the former Packers, and showed promise on special teams, the drafting of Adam Shaheen can speak to why Perillo is moving on. The Bears also added some undrafted tight ends and in what was a deep tight end class this year, they have to feel confident.
