Rolle announced his retirement from the NFL on Monday, NFL.com reports.
Rolle, now 33 years old, is a three-time Pro Bowl safety and Super Bowl champion who will finish his decorated career with 834 tackles, four sacks, 69 PBUs, 26 interceptions and five touchdowns to his name. He was last with the Bears up until May, but was coming off an injury-shorted 2015 campaign and subsequently released in order to clear cap room.
The Bears have released Rolle (knee), the Chicago Tribune reports.
Releasing Rolle saves the Bears $3 million against their 2016 salary cap, with the move made more feasible after the team took safeties Deon Bush and DeAndre Houston-Carson in the recently-completed NFL Draft. The 33-year-old Rolle was limited to seven games and 35 tackles in his one and only season with the Bears in 2015.
Rolle (knee) has been placed on IR by the Bears, the Chicago Tribune reports.
Rolle's injury is described as a sprained knee, which suggests that he should be recovered well in advance of the 2016 season. In seven games for the Bears in 2015, Rolle logged 35 tackles. In a corresponding move, OT Tayo Fabuluje was reinstated to the team's active roster.
Rolle (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Redskins.
Rolle had been listed as questionable after practicing in a limited fashion Thursday and Friday, but the Bears decided the veteran safety wasn't quite healthy enough to play Sunday. With Rolle missing his fourth straight game, Chris Prosinski will continue to start at strong safety.

Rolle couldn't play through the injury last week, but a Thursday return to practice suggests he at least has some shot to return for Sunday's game. If not, Chris Prosinski would likely get another start alongside Adrian Amos.
Rolle (knee) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.
The knee issue will prevent Rolle from suiting up for a third straight game. He failed to practice throughout the week, and until he's able to see some on-field involvement, it'll be difficult to project him to return for any of the Bears' subsequent contests. Chris Prosinski will make another start in place of Rolle.
Rolle (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Rolle didn't practice all week and isn't expected to play in Sunday's game, according to Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Sun-Times. Chris Prosinski thus figures to get another start alongside Adrian Amos.
Rolle (knee) is not expected to play in Thursday's game against the Packers, ESPN.com reports.
Rolle missed Sunday's game against the Broncos after injuring his knee during Saturday's walkthrough. Chris Prosinski figures to start for a second straight week, following a six-tackle, one-sack showing Sunday afternoon. He's a better IDP option than rookie free safety Adrian Amos, who has just 39 tackles this season despite starting every game.
Rolle (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Rams, Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune reports.
With the Bears coming off a short week following Monday's win over the Chargers, a banged-up Rolle was a limited participation in practices Thursday and Friday. That was still good enough for him to remain available for a third straight game, and he figures to be on the field for nearly every play Sunday as one of the team's starting safeties. Unfortunately, Rolle's ample snap count hasn't aided his fantasy production, as he's supplied a meager 30 tackles and has produced no turnovers over six games this season.
Rolle (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in St. Louis.
Rolle missed Wednesday's practice but then returned to limited participation both Thursday and Friday. He should be able to play in Sunday's contest, as he returned from a two-game absence for a Week 9 win over the Chargers, immediately stepping back in as an every-down player.
Rolle (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Vikings.
Rolle missed the Bears' last two games due to the ankle issue, but after logging limited participation in three practices this week, the team determined he was good to go. He'll assume a starting spot at safety, but given the relatively lackluster production he provided over his first four games (23 tackles, no turnovers), Rolle doesn't profile as much of an IDP consideration just yet.
Rolle (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings.
Rolle missed consecutive games before the Bears' bye week and may still need more time to recover. He was a limited participant in practice all week, suggesting that he's truly questionable for Sunday. If Rolle can't play, Harold Jones-Quartey will likely make another start.
Rolle (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's loss to the Lions, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Rolle had been listed as doubtful after failing to practice all week, so the Bears were never really counting on him to play Sunday. With Rolle slated to miss a second consecutive game, Harold Jones-Quartey is expected to enter the starting lineup at the strong safety spot.
Bears safety Antrel Rolle (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game in Detroit.
With Rolle expected to miss another game, Harold Jones-Quartey figures to start alongside fellow rookie Adrian Amos, with Sherrod Martin potentially also getting some snaps. Jones-Quartey recorded four tackles in a Week 5 win over the Chiefs.
Rolle (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.
Rolle's unavailability doesn't register as a surprise after he was listed doubtful heading into the week with the ankle issue. The Bears haven't relayed a timetable for Rolle's return, so there's a decent possibility that he could miss further action beyond Sunday's game. Harold Jones-Quartey is expected to start at safety in Rolle's stead.
Bears safety Antrel Rolle (ankle) is listed as doubtful for the Sunday game in Kansas City.
Rolle missed the entire week of practice, leaving undrafted rookie Harold Jones-Quartey as the likely starter.
Bears safety Antrel Rolle (ankle) didn't practice Thursday, the Bears' official site reports.
Rolle came out of Sunday's game with an ankle injury, but despite clean X-rays, he has yet to practice this week. If he's eventually ruled out, Harold Jones-Quartey is the logical candidate to fill in at strong safety.
X-rays on Bears safety Antrel Rolle's foot came back clean after he was forced out of Sunday's win over the Raiders due to injury, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.
It looks like Rolle avoided a serious injury after he left the locker room sporting a walking boot Sunday, but his status for this week's game against the Chiefs remains in some peril. Perhaps in anticipation of Rolle sitting out Sunday, the Bears signed Sherrod Martin on Tuesday to add depth to their safety ranks.
Bears safety Antrel Rolle suffered an ankle injury Sunday against the Raiders, ESPN reports.
A leader on the defense, Rolle has 15 tackles through three games this season. The seriousness of the injury is still unknown.
Bears safety Antrel Rolle collected a team-leading 10 tackles in a 26-0 loss to the Seahawks on Sunday.
Seattle rookie running back Thomas Rawls ran roughshod over the Chicago defense in Week 3, creating plenty of opportunities for Rolle to make stops. Rolle has made 20 tackles through the Bears' first three games, but the team needs him to produce turnovers at the back end in order to keep the 0-3 squad competitive.
