Tennessee claimed LB Tim Shaw on Sunday. Shaw was waived by the Bears one season after setting a team record with 30 special teams tackles.
The Bears began making roster cuts, releasing LB and special-teams ace Tim Shaw, SS Al Afalava, WR Freddie Barnes, LB Kevin Malast, TE Richard Angulo, DB Quentin Scott, CB Woodny Turenne, and CB Cornelius Brown.
The Bears announced that exclusive-rights free agents RB Kahlil Bell, LB Tim Shaw and DT Matt Toeaina have been re-signed for the 2010 season.
