By Adam Hoge-

(CBS) — The Bears’ first cap casualty of the offseason is backup running back Michael Bush.

The Bears released Bush Monday, just two years into a four-year, $14 million contract signed in 2012. The move frees up $1.85 million in cap space, although the Bears will still be on the hook for $2 million in dead money in 2014.

Bush ran for 608 yards in his two seasons in Chicago, including just 197 in 2013.

The Bears also released tight end Dante Rosario Monday, a somewhat odd move considering they just re-signed him to a one-year contract just 12 days ago.

Here’s what the Bears’ projected depth chart looks like after the latest moves.
