Nothing came of last week's report that the Chicago Bears "had some discussions about trading WR Earl Bennett," and he made it through the team's final roster cuts over the weekend. Bears GM Phil Emery and Bennett downplayed the trade rumor on Monday, but having "discussions" could mean little more than other teams checking in with the Bears to assess Bennett's availability.
