Bears Waive Cheta Ozougwu

The Bears have cut defensive end Cheta Ozougwu, the team announced today (via Twitter). If no team puts in a waiver claim on Ozougwu, he’ll become an unrestricted free agent later this week.

Ozougwu, 25, was selected in the seventh round of the 2011 draft by Houston, but never played in a regular-season game for the Texans. In two seasons with the Bears, Ozougwu appeared in nine total games, playing less than 100 total defensive snaps. He did, however, record his first career sack and forced fumble in 2013.
