The Chicago Bears are keeping just two quarterbacks, moving on from Tyler Bray
When Tyler Bray entered Week Four of the preseason, there was a clear indication that his job was on the line. Chase Daniel played excellent against the Kansas City Chiefs starters in Week Three of the preseason and looked like he had a firm grasp of the offense.
Tyler Bray was chugging along, but as a third quarterback, it felt as though the team needed depth elsewhere. That is why it is no surprise to see the Chicago Bears let go of Bray, electing to go with two quarterbacks instead of three.
There is a decent chance that Bray will clear waivers, and if a quarterback is hurt, Bray could be retained. Of course, once he clears waivers he could still sign with another team.

Still, we all know Bray was brought in for a reason. He has familiarity with Matt Nagy and understands the offense and the communication. It would almost be in his best interest to hang out, stay in shape and see what happens in the Bears quarterback room.
Of course, the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles could come calling as well. The Eagles have depth at quarterback, but also have injury questions at quarterback. The Chiefs are holding onto Chad Henne as their current backup option with Matt McGloin behind him.
Nonetheless, this speaks more to Chase Daniel and Mitchell Trubisky than it does Tyler Bray. The Chicago Bears feel very comfortable with these two. They tend to think that without the two of them that they are playing for the future anyway. With the Khalil Mack trade this team is clearly all-in, and are not worried about what happens if Trubisky or Daniel goes down.
