The Chicago Bears have released linebacker Devekeyan “DeDe” Lattimore. He was cut in order for the team to sign wide receiver Jeremy Kelley.
Lattimore was signed to a two-year deal this off-season. They could have also kept him with an ERFA tender, but elected for the long-term deal.
He had just three special teams tackles last year.
Kelley came into the league in 2013, as an underrated free agent, before signing with the Indianapolis Colts. He was waived before the start of the regular season that year.
In December of last year, he signed with the Denver Broncos. However, he was released in May.
He’s also spent time in the Canadian Football League and the Arena Football League. He was with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in 2011, while he was with the San Jose SaberCats earlier this year.
He’s previously played the 2012 season with the Utah Jazz and the Pittsburgh Power last year.
