Nothing roster-wise is final and the Bears will make at least several more cuts in addition to the exits of tackle Corey Brandon (knee surgery) and safety Brandon Hardin (stinger, tweeted good-bye). They are “heavy” at offensive line (nine), wide receiver (seven), defensive line (five DEs, five DTs) and possibly either linebacker (seven) or cornerback (six). Among the deliberations: Terrence Tolliver's six catches and three special-teams tackles may have moved him ahead of Eric Weems. Eben Britton's versatility is a possible edge over Jonathan Scott. And rookie DT Zach Minter has had more time to shine this preseason than injured Corvey Irvin.
