(CBS) The Bears have waived reserve quarterback Connor Shaw, they announced Tuesday morning.
The move came as Chicago also officially announced it had signed receiver Victor Cruz to a one-year deal, a move that was reported last week.
Shaw became expendable following the offseason signings of Mike Glennon to be the team’s starter and Mark Sanchez to be a reserve, along with the draft selection of Mitchell Trubisky at No. 2 overall.
Shaw missed the entire 2016 regular season after suffering a broken leg in the preseason. He entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent in 2014.
