Bears waived S Winston Venable.
A linebacker at Boise State, Venable was hoping to stick as a special teamer and backup strong safety. His lack of defensive value cost him a roster spot.
Bears re-signed S Winston Venable.
Venable is back to replace Anthony Walters, who landed on injured reserve yesterday. If active Sunday, Venable will focus on special teams.
Undrafted out of Boise State, Venable earned a spot on the final roster by impressing on special teams. The Bears have opted to go with Anthony Walters instead after five weeks.
