Bears Cut Three Including S Kentrell Brice


The Chicago Bears announced Sunday night that they’ve cut three players including LB Devante Bond, S Kentrell Brice and WR Alex Wesley.

Brice, 25, wound up signing on with the Packers as an undrafted free agent out of Louisiana Tech in 2016. He has managed to make the 53-man roster in each of his first three seasons in the NFL.

Brice finished his three-year, $1.62 million rookie contract with the Packers before they declined to tender him a restricted offer this past offseason. He later signed a one-year deal with the Buccaneers but was waived coming out of the preseason. 

The Bears signed Brice to a futures contract this past January. 

In 2018, Brice appeared in 14 games for the Packers and recorded 50 tackles, one sack, no interceptions, and two pass defenses.

Bond, 27, is a former sixth-round pick by the Buccaneers in the 2016 NFL Draft out of Oklahoma. He was entering the third year of his four-year, $2.48 million rookie contract when Tampa Bay waived him with an injury settlement in 2018.

However, the Buccaneers re-signed Bond in October after he was fully recovered from plantar fasciitis. He was in line to be a restricted free agent in 2019 before re-signing on a one-year deal with Tampa Bay. 

The Buccaneers released Bond in October and he later caught on with the Bears for the final three games of 2019. Chicago later re-signed him to a one-year contract this past February. 

In 2019, Bond appeared in four games for the Buccaneers and three games for the Bears, finishing with three total tackles.
