The Chicago Bears finalized their 53-man roster on Sunday by making a flurry of moves to reach the NFL limit, which included terminating vested veterans Eben Britton, Kelvin Hayden and Austen Lane.

The Bears also waived safety M.D. Jennings with an injury settlement, in addition to waiving 13 more players.

The Bears waived receivers Josh Bellamy, Chris Williams and Dale Moss, center Taylor Boggs, defensive tackles Brandon Dunn, Tracy Robertson and Lee Pegues, linebackers Jerry Franklin and DeDe Lattimore, along with guard Ryan Groy, cornerbacks C.J. Wilson and Al Louis-Jean, and safety Marcus Trice.

It’s expected that some of the players released on Saturday will be signed to the expanded 10-man practice squad, provided they aren’t claimed off waivers by other teams.
