CB Desmond Trufant released by Bears

Desmond Trufant released

The Chicago Bears have released cornerback Desmond Trufant. He joined the Bears in March of 2021, but left to be with his family after a death in the family in August. He stayed with his family throughout the duration of training camp.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the news via Twitter on Tuesday.

Trufant entered the league in 2013 after being drafted by the Falcons in the first round. He remained with Atlanta for seven seasons before being released. The Lions signed him to a two-year, $21 million contract but was released in March of 2021.

Now, Trufant remains a free agent and is still owed over $3 million by the Lions. Reports say he wants to continue playing, despite staying away from the Bears during his family tragedy.
