·1 min read

The Chicago Bears have announced their first round of roster cuts, where they’ve parted ways with six players, placed one on injured reserve and signed two players.

Chicago waived undrafted rookie defensive end Carson Taylor on Monday before announcing their final cuts at Tuesday’s deadline.

These moves brings the Bears’ current roster down to 85 players, with two more cut deadlines on the way. Chicago will need to trim the roster to 80 players next Tuesday before the final cutdown to 53 players on Aug. 30.

Here’s a look at the five players who have been waived:
