JERRELL FREEMAN HAS BECOME AVAILABLE


The Chicago Bears released linebacker Jerrell Freeman on Tuesday, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reported. Pro Football Talk first reported the development.

Freeman signed a three-year $12 million contract with Chicago in 2016 after four seasons in Indianapolis. His release will save the Bears nearly $3.5 million on the salary cap.

Freeman performed well early in his Bears career, compiling 110 tackles in 12 games, but he was suspended four tilts for PED use in 2016. The 31-year-old played just one game in 2017 before heading to injured reserve with a pectoral injury.

Freeman was then popped for another PED violation, leading to a 10-game suspension. He will serve the final two games of that ban at the start of the 2018 season.

The Mary-Hardin Baylor product from Waco, TX spent three seasons with the Saskatchewan Roughriders (2009-2011), making two Grey Cup appearances as the team's starting linebacker.

Loved JF when he was here. Wonder how much PED use was happening during his CFL career now though.

Would be a nice pick-up by the Riders for sure!

Probably the best linebacker to suit up for the Riders since Wally Dempsey.

Its Possible that NFL pressure caused him to use drugs to preform at a higher level. Could be a good addition if the price is right

im assuming none.. the cfl tests for peds and he was never caught.. and then played in the nfl for 4 and a half seasons in the NFL with out using or being caught .. so im assuming it was after he started having injury issues.
