Bears 53-man roster

August 30th, 2008 - 5:43 pm

NFL teams had until 5 PM Saturday to make their final cuts to get their roster number down to 53 players.

Here was my hypothetical 53-man roster if I were the Bears’ GM.

The only differences between mine and the actual roster are as follows:

  • Add Garrett Wolfe, Mark Bradley, Dusty Dvoracek (whom I mistakenly forgot to add to mine, oops!).
  • Subtract Lousaka Polite, Anthony Oakley, Michael Okwo.

And here’s a look at how the Bears’ roster stands:

Quarterback (3): Kyle Orton, Rex Grossman, Caleb Hanie.

Running Back (4): Matt Forte, Kevin Jones, Garrett Wolfe, Adrian Peterson.

Fullback (1): Jason McKie.

Wide Receiver (6): Devin Hester, Brandon Lloyd, Earl Bennett, Marty Booker, Rashied Davis, Mark Bradley.

Tight End (3): Desmond Clark, Greg Olsen, Kellen Davis.

Offensive Line (8): Olin Kreutz, Josh Beekman, Terrence Metcalf, Roberto Garza, John Tait, John St. Clair, Chris Williams, Kirk Barton.

Defensive Line (9): Tommie Harris, Anthony Adams, Dusty Dvoracek, Israel Idonije, Marcus Harrison, Alex Brown, Adewale Ogunleye, Mark Anderson, Matt Toeaina.

Linebacker (6): Brian Urlacher, Lance Briggs, Hunter Hillenmeyer, Jamar Williams, Darrell McClover, Nick Roach.

Safety (4): Mike Brown, Brandon McGowan, Kevin Payne, Craig Steltz.

Cornerback (6): Charles Tillman, Nathan Vasher, Danieal Manning, Corey Graham, Zackary Bowman, Trumaine McBride.

Specialists (3): Robbie Gould, Brad Maynard, Patrick Mannelly.
