Jones Done for Season. Rideau Released.

| September 4th, 2009

Brad Biggs seems to have the best sources inside Halas Hall, as he’s been on top of each cut as they happen.  Not surprisingly, he’s also reporting that Kevin Jones is done for the year. Here is the list of cuts thus far:

G Dan Buenning
C Donovan Raiola
FB Jason Davis
DE Joe Clermond
WR Eric Peterman
CB Rod Hood
WR Brandon Rideau
LB Kevin Malast
LB Darrell McClover
LB Mike Rivera
LB Marcus Freeman
FB Will Ta’ufo’ou
CB Woodny Turenne
CB Rudy Burgess
CB Marcus Hamilton
CB Dahna Deleston

I will update as Biggs and company do.

Update 7:20 PM – So the Bears are keeping 11 defensive backs, 6 linebackers, 3 specials, 2 quarterbacks, 3 running backs, 1 fullback, 6 receivers.  Assuming 4 tight ends is 36.  That leaves 17 spots. 

That leaves room for 8 offensive linemen and 9 defensive linemen.  Is Lance Louis on the team?  Will the Bears keep Matt Toeaina or Henry Melton?
