Bears release TE Braunecker

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — The Chicago Bears released tight end Ben Braunecker on Thursday.

Undrafted out of Harvard in 2016, Braunecker caught 13 passes for 142 yards in 47 games for Chicago. The Bears now have eight tight ends on their roster, including second-round draft pick Cole Kmet and veteran newcomer Jimmy Graham.

Chicago missed the playoffs at 8-8 last season after going 12-4 and winning the NFC North in 2018.
