Press Release from the Chicago Bears. Two Chicago Bears Wide Receivers at the pro bowl? Think Satan may well be skating to work tomorrow :) BEARS WR ALSHON JEFFERY NAMED...
Press release concerning Chicago Bears roster moves overnight brought one unsurprising move and a couple of surprising moves.
First is that Evan Rodriguez was waived. This is unsurprising because of the offseason he has had with a disorderly intoxication arrest in March and then a DUI arrest late last month.
I didnt expect the return of Devin Aromashodu in all honesty.The addition of Tony Flammetta brings a full back in place of Evan Rodriguez who was really a tight end.
