The Chicago Bears, in order to reach the 53 man NFL roster limit, cut 18 players yesterday. And Mike Hass wasn't one of them.
Mike had a great training camp capped of with a great pre-season finale Thursday that included a 9-yard leaping touchdown catch.
"It was just a case of a guy coming in behind the eight-ball a little bit and working his way onto the roster," Chicago coach Lovie Smith said. "Mike made plays every day [during training camp] and he finished up with a good last preseason game. That's the beauty about training camp. There are a couple of guys that come in and earn a spot, and Mike was able to do that."
However, others weren't as fortunate:
However, after Matt Moore was cut by the Cowboys, he was picked up by the Carolina Panthers and placed on their 53-man roster.
