The Bears have started trimming their roster.
Per a report from the Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs, the Bears parted ways with safety Adrian Wilson and defensive lineman Nate Collins on Saturday.
Wilson, 34, is a five-time Pro Bowler, but the veteran didn't fit into the Bears' plans for their revamped defense.
The same goes for Collins, who appeared in 14 games over the past two seasons with the Bears. He tweeted a goodbye to Chicago shortly after the news broke that he'd been released.

Biggs also reported that the Bears parted ways with running back Michael Ford, buried on the depth chart behind Matt Forte, Ka'Deem Carey and Shaun Draughn.
