Willie Young: Cut by Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bears released Young (triceps) on Wednesday, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Young, who is set to turn 33 years old in September, is the second veteran outside linebacker the Bears have released this week, after Pernell McPhee (shoulder) was handed his walking papers Monday. With no fewer than 6.5 sacks in his first three seasons in Chicago upon joining the team in 2014, Young was one of the top pass-rushing threats on the roster, but carried significant health concerns after having suffered a torn Achilles' tendon in 2015 and requiring season-ending surgery in October to address a torn triceps. Expect the Bears to make bolstering their outside-linebacker group a top priority in the offseason.

Bears' Willie Young: Entering last year of contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young (triceps) notched two sacks in four games before being placed on injured reserve in Week 5.

Young is signed with the Bears through 2018, and in his four years with the team he's recorded 26 sacks in 50 games. Should he make a healthy return to the lineup, he'll be a solid IDP option, based on his ability to pile up sacks.
