The Boston Globe reports safety Eugene Wilson, and Illinois product, will reach the free-agent market.
The Globe also says ex-Bears linebacker Rosevelt Colvin will hit the market as his salary-cap figure is too high. He is expected to be released. Colvin missed the Super Bowl with a broken bone in his foot.
It remains to be seen what the Bears will do at safety in terms of seeking some help. Kevin Payne figures to get an opportunity, but the Bears may go out and seek help elsewhere.
