The pass rusher spent four seasons with the team.
"The Chicago Bears have released outside linebacker Sam Acho White Tom Waddle Jerseys , according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. The move will clear up just under $2 million in cap space.Acho was signed to a one-year, $840,000 deal in 2015 after having spent the first four seasons of his career with the Arizona Cardinals. The Bears signed him to two more one-year deals before giving him a two-year, $5.5 million contract last offseason. During his time with the team Tom Waddle Jerseys 2019 , Acho tallied 111 tackles, four sacks and three forced fumbles. He played in 51 games in that tenure, starting 25 of them. His 2018 season was cut short due to a torn pectoral in the fourth week of the year.While Acho served as a valuable special teams player and solid depth as a pass rusher, it was his contributions off the field that made him such a valuable member of the Bears’ organization. A two-time nominee for the Walter Payton Man of the Year award White William Perry Jerseys , Acho’s philanthropic role in the community and personality has made him as positive influence in the team’s locker room. He founded the Bears’ social justice committee, served as Vice President of the NFLPA’s executive committee, and took annual mission trips overseas to Nigeria, cementing himself as one of the league’s most charitable players.There remains a chance that Acho may be brought back to the team on a cheaper deal William Perry Jerseys 2019 , much like Marcus Cooper was last offseason. Regardless of whether or not the Bears choose to bring him back, he leaves them having left an impact both on and off the field. Thursday morning’s report that the Bears are set to start Chase Daniel at quarterback against the Giants this Sunday hasn’t been confirmed by the Bears, but there’s no sign that they will be moving in another direction.Mitchell Trubisky was a limited participant in practice on Wednesday for the first time since injuring his right shoulder and head coach Matt Nagy said that the same will be true at Thursday’s session. Nagy also outlined one of Trubisky’s limitations and it’s a pretty big one even when you take into account the fact that Trubisky is a good running quarterback.Nagy said that Trubisky did not throw on Wednesday and will not throw on Thursday, so his practice involvement will be limited to other activities once again on Thursday.Friday will bring official injury designations for this weekend and all the evidence on hand would make it surprising if Trubisky isn’t ruled out for the second straight week.
