The Bears released running back Kevin Jones.
No surprise there. Since the team acquired Chester Taylor on the first day of free agency, Jones has been expendable.
The former Lion signed with the Bears in 2008. He was expected to be Matt Forte's primary backup last until tearing ligaments in his ankle in an exhibition game and missing the entire 2009 season.
Taylor, who backed up Adrian Peterson in Minnesota, will complement Forte this coming season.
