Bears Waive QB Jimmy Clausen, Promote QB David Fales

The Chicago Bears announced Monday that they’ve waived QB Jimmy Clausen and promoted QB David Fales from their practice squad.

Clausen, 28, is a former second round pick of the Panthers back in 2010. He lasted over three years in Carolina before joining the Bears as a free agent in 2014.

Chicago signed him to a one-year, $1.125 million contract that included a $262,500 signing bonus back in March. Clausen will make a base salary of $745,000 for the 2015 season.

This season, Clausen has appeared in two games and thrown for 184 yards while completing 57.5 percent of his passes to go along with no touchdowns and an interception.

Fales, 25, was taken in the sixth-round of last year’s NFL draft, even though the Bears said there was no way they would select a quarterback in the later rounds.

Fales was able to make the final 53-man roster coming out of the preseason, but he has been on and off the team’s practice squad since then.

He has yet to appear in an NFL game.
