(CBS) The Bears have waived defensive end Cheta Ozougwu, the team announced Tuesday.

The 25-year-old Ozougwu, a Rice product, appeared in nine games with Chicago in the past two seasons, recording four tackles in that span. His release comes after a stretch in free agency during which the Bears signed defensive ends Jared Allen, Lamarr Houston and Willie Young.
