Bears Cut Bennett

(Lake Forest, IL) -- The Bears terminated the contract of veteran wide receiver Earl Bennett Tuesday.

He has 185 receptions for 2,277 yards and 12 TDs in his career.

The Bears agreed to terms on a one-year contract with defensive lineman Israel Idonije. Idonije played nine years with the Bears before moving to the Lions last season. In a reserve role, he recorded 11 tackles and a half-sack for Detroit in 2013.
