Updated: August 30, 2013

Lake Forest, IL (Sports Network) – The Chicago Bears released former starting
left tackle J’Marcus Webb on Friday.

Webb started 44 games for Chicago over the previous three seasons and was
penciled in to start at right tackle in 2013 but struggled mightily throughout
the preseason.

Meanwhile, quarterback Jordan Palmer, who started Chicago’s 18-16 preseason
loss to the Cleveland Browns on Thursday, announced on his Twitter account
that he was unemployed

“I really appreciate all the kind words from the #Bears fans but I’m headed
home today. Crazy biz but appreciative,” Palmer wrote.

The Bears also waived goodbye to fellow quarterback Trent Edwards as well as
running backs Armando Allen and Harvey Unga, wide receivers Brittan Golden and
Josh Lenz, offensive lineman Edwin Williams, offensive guard Derek Dennis,
tight end Fendi Onobun, defensive ends Aston Whiteside and Josh Williams,
defensive tackle Christian Tupou, linebacker Jerry Franklin, cornerback
Demontre Hurst, safety Tom Nelson and long snapper Brandon Hartson.

Chicago’s roster now stands at 58 players and the team must reduce that to 53
by 6:00 pm ET on Saturday.
