Wims had fallen behind in the competition for receiver spots in Chicago so this doesn’t come as a big surprise.
Wims, 26, is a former seventh-round pick of the Bears out of Georgia back in 2018. He was entering the final year of his four-year, $2.5 million rookie contract.
In 2020, Wims appeared in 13 games for the Bears and caught six passes for 48 yards receiving and one touchdown.
