With the next week of preseason in the books, the next round of roster cuts are in our midst. The Chicago Bears have until 3 p.m. to trim the roster from 85 to 80 players, this means they have to part ways with five players.

The Bears are waiving former sixth-round wide receiver Dazz Newsome, in accordance with NFL Networks Tom Pelissero, which marks the teams first cut before Tuesdays deadline.

Newsome was the type of competing for a roster spot in a wide-open receiving group behind Darnell Mooney. While Newsome has made some solid plays during training camp and preseason, he previously his share of mistakes with dropped passes and couldnt carve out a job for himself on special teams.

Newsomes career with Chicago got off to a rocky start after he suffered a broken collarbone last spring that kept him sidelined. He was on the list of final round of roster cuts last summer, and he was later re-signed to the practice squad, where he spent the majority of his rookie season.

In three regular season games with the Bears, Newsome had two receptions for 23 yards.

Chicago still has four cuts to create prior to the 3 p.m. deadline.
