Lattimore, 24, would have been an exclusive rights free agent in the coming weeks. He signed on with the Bears as an undrafted free agent out of South Florida back in May.
Coming out of the preseason, Lattimore was unable to make the 53-man roster and was later added to the team’s practice squad.
However, he would go on to appear in 10 games and recorded three tackles for the Bears in 2014.
