  Cardinals | Adrian Wilson to retire and coach?     Mon Apr 20, 07:17 AM

  Bears | Eight players cut    Sat Aug 23, 11:18 PM

The Chicago Bears have released SS Adrian Wilson, DT Nate Collins and OG Dylan Gandy. The team also informed RB Michael Ford, WR Greg Herd, WR Kofi Hughes, CB Derricus Purdy and CB Peyton Thompson that they have been waived.

Footballguys view: Ford was not impressive this year in training camp or the preseason. The Bears selected Kadeem Carey in the fourth round of the 2014 NFL draft to be the primary backup behind Matt Forte. Shaun Draughn has looked good in camp, and he's essentially taken Ford's spot.
