LAKE FOREST, Ill – Mike Davis’ run in Chicago is over.
According to multiple reports, the Bears are waiving Davis eight games into his two-year, $6 million contract.
The #Bears are waiving RB Mike Davis, one of their free agent signings this past spring, source said. They gave him $6M over 2 years, but cut him after just 11 carries in part because of how it helps them get a comp pick. He’ll be attractive on the waiver wire.

Davis only rushed 25 times for 11 yards during his time with Bears.
The Bears are expected to receive a compensatory draft pick for the move, possibly a fourth rounder, for the first time since 2009.
