Bears Cut One Cornerback, Sign Another
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) -- The Chicago Bears have placed cornerback Trumaine McBride on the waived/injured list and claimed cornerback DeAngelo Smith off waivers.

Drafted in the seventh round by the Bears in 2007, McBride has started 10 games and appeared in 33. He has 48 tackles along with one interception and 18 special teams tackles.

Smith was drafted by Dallas in the fifth round in the spring but did not make the final cut. He then spent 10 days with Cleveland before getting waived on Wednesday.
