The Chicago Bears on Friday released the veteran wide receiver, a source informed of the decision told NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.It’s a move that comes as little surprise to Bears fans, who watched the former Giants star toil with fringe backups in the club’s third preseason game before failing to make an impact in Thursday’s finale.
Lacking the blazing speed that made him a household name a half decade ago, the 30-year-old Cruz — who admirably battled back from multiple devastating injuries — will be hard-pressed to find another gig.

For the Bears, Cruz’s release means that former Titans wideout Kendall Wright will stick with the 53-man roster heading into the opener.

While offseason trade chatter and hot-stove talk has dissipated at the start of spring training, don’t count out the idea of the Yankees making a move for an impact arm at some point this year.


In fact, according to Bruce Levine of CBS Chicago, the Yankees, along with the Houston Astros, Pittsburgh Pirates and St. Louis Cardinals are “deep into” the Quintana sweepstakes.
The Astros, Cardinals, Pirates and Yankees are teams believed to be dug into the sweepstakes for the 28-year-old Quintana, who’s on the trade block as the White Sox have embarked on a rebuild. The White Sox’s focus in a potential Quintana trade is the quality of prospects they get in return, not the quantity, sources said.
If the needed return for one of baseball’s best–and most underrated–pitchers is quality prospects, it’s easy to see why the White Sox would want the Yankees as part of the bidding war.
Quintana, 28, has been a top starter over the past for seasons. Since the start of 2013, Quintana is one of only seven pitchers in baseball to make 120 starts, toss 800 innings and post an ERA+ of 115 or better. The other six: Max Scherzer, Corey Kluber, Jon Lester, Madison Bumgarner, David Price and Cole Hamels.
Plus, thanks to one of the most team-friendly deals in the sport, Quintana is a bargain. The lefty is guaranteed a grand total of $17.85M on his current deal. If option years in 2019 and 2020 are picked up, Quintana will make a grand total of $37.85M over the next four seasons.
