These are the first of Chicago’s cuts in the process of trimming the roster to 53 players.
Redmond, 28, wound up going undrafted out of Harvard back in 2016. He later signed on with the Colts and spent over a year in Indianapolis before eventually being added to the Bills’ practice squad.
Redmond returned to Buffalo the following year on a futures contract before later being claimed by the Cowboys. Dallas placed him on injured reserve in 2019 with a back injury.
He returned to the Cowboys in March of 2020 before eventually being released coming out of camp. However, he rejoined Dallas’ practice squad and bounced on and off for the rest of the season. He signed a futures deal for 2021 but was released after the draft.
The Bears signed him to a contract back in May.
For his career, Redmond has appeared in 18 games, but has yet to make a start.
Lacy, 25, signed with the Patriots as an undrafted free agent out of Oklahoma State back in 2018. New England waived Lacy just a week later, and he was later claimed off of waivers by the Lions.
Lacy bounced on and off the Lions’ active roster throughout the 2018 and 2019 seasons. Detroit promoted him from their active roster back before releasing him in 2020.
From there, Lacy signed on to the Cowboys’ practice squad in November of 2020, where he finished the season.
Dallas released Lacy in March, and the Bears signed him in May of this year.
In 2019, Lacy appeared in seven games and recorded three receptions for 60 yards receiving (20 YPC) and no touchdowns.
