(CBS) D.J. Moore is no more in Chicago.
The Bears informed the nickle back on Monday that they won’t be bringing him back for the 2013 season.
“I expected it all year,” Moore told The Score’s Laurence Holmes on Monday night. “With the way the salary cap is, you can’t afford to pay multiple players anywhere. If it’s a player that could make a little bit of money, you probably just let them go and try to get a rookie because it’s so cheap to have rookies these days that you just fill them in.”
Moore fell out of favor with the Bears during the 2012 season, particularly former head coach Lovie Smith, after he openly criticized quarterback Jay Cutler for bumping J’Marcus Webb during a Thursday night game against Green Bay.
