Cornerback Nathan Vasher has struggled since going to the Pro Bowl after the 2005 season.
Last season, he started just two games.
But general manager Jerry Angelo said Vasher will be at Bears training camp.
"He's on the roster," Angelo said. "We've paid him his money. It doesn't behoove us to let him go. We're going to take him to training camp.
"Right now it's business as usual with Nathan."
Vasher is set to make nearly $3 million 2010, and his salary cap number is nearly $5 million. But the club doesn't have to pay him that base salary unless he's on the regular-season roster.
