Report: Bears to release Chester Taylor
Posted by Evan Silva on February 7, 2011, 9:25 PM EST
2011 NFC Championship: Green Bay Packers v Chicago Bears

John Mullin of Comcast SportsNet Chicago reports that the Bears plan to release backup running back Chester Taylor this offseason. The report points out that 2011 would be Taylor’s age-32 season, and “his arrow is definitely not pointing up.”

Taylor averaged 2.38 yards per carry during the 2010 regular season, a dreadful mark even if some of his rushing attempts were of the short-yardage variety. He exhibited very little burst between the tackles.

The Bears signed Taylor to a four-year, $12.5 million contract last March and have already paid him $7 million.

Taylor’s base salary in 2011 is scheduled to be $1.275 million.

G.M. Jerry Angelo can put that money toward an extension for 25-year-old feature back Matt Forte.


Worth a shot to bring him back home? He's 32 but doesn't have that much wear and tear on his legs. I'm not advocating this, but he might be worth a look.

wow..the bears are retarded! why would they cut him after only 1 season and paying him all that dough?? it's not like they're run game sucks becasue of the backs. Their line isn't very good at run blocking......that seems like a dumb move on their behalf

Good for Chester. He wasn't getting the carries, he got his money, go somewhere and get yours.

I agree, I think it's stupid, but with Matt Forte rebounding the way he did this year, they don't need him. Plus they have Kahlil Bell who they really like. He was a waste of money.
