Bears Waive Kicker Chris Blewitt

June 12, 2019 - 9:12 am

(670 The Score) The Bears ran out their three kickers to attempt a kick from more than 40 yards Tuesday afternoon, with 25 team alums watching from the sidelines. Eddy Pineiro hit the right post, Chris Blewitt was wide left and Elliott Fry was wide right.

A day later, the Bears have released Blewitt from the ongoing kicking battle and cut the group to two: Pineiro and Fry.

A Pittsburgh product, Blewitt was signed by the Bears in early March. He was the program's all-time leader in field goals and extra points.

The Bears wrap up mini-camp Thursday, the final phase of the offseason program before training camp.
