Another high pick from the Bears' 2005 draft class is history.
Wide receiver Mark Bradley was waived this afternoon to make room for cornerback Marcus Hamilton.
Bradley was a second-round pick from Oklahoma in the same draft that produced running back Cedric Benson in the first round. He came on in his rookie season before a torn ACL in the middle of the year derailed him. Bradley never recovered and spent much of last season in the doghouse. He was hailed as a starter after Bernard Berrian escaped via free agency and veteran Muhsin Muhammad was released, but Bradley required arthroscopic knee surgery in May and was essentially never seen from again. He appeared on the field for one offensive snap in three games.
He departs to make room for Hamilton, who made his NFL debut Sunday for Tampa Bay. A seventh-round pick out of Virginia in 2007, Hamilton spent all last season on the practice squad.
