Bears Release Safety Omar Bolden

Omar Bolden

The Bears have released safety Omar Bolden according to Adam Caplan of ESPN.

The timing of the move is curious as the Bears just signed Bolden to a one-year, $840,000 deal in March which included an $80,000 signing bonus. Originally a fourth round pick out Arizona State by the Denver Broncos in 2012, Bolden spent his first four years in the NFL in Denver so Bears head coach John Fox is obviously familiar with him. While in Denver the 27-year-old was a deep reserve with no career interceptions but developed into a core special teamer.

It is possible that Bolden is dealing with an undisclosed injury or an off-the-field situation. Otherwise, he will likely latch on with another team looking for quality special teams help.
