Bears Release Derrick Martin

The Bears have cut former Ravens safety Derrick Martin with a non-football injury designation, according to Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post (on Twitter). The move will create room on the roster for former CFL tackle Michael Ola, who was picked up earlier today off waivers from the Dolphins.

The well-traveled veteran has played for five NFL teams over the course of his career and could be on his way to No. 6. Martin appeared in seven games last season for the Bears, recording a tackle on defense and six on special teams, and was re-signed to a one-year deal earlier this year. The 29-year-old has two Super Bowl rings in his collection – one with the Packers and one with the Giants in the following season.
