Chicago Bears Release Quarterback

The Chicago Bears have released quarterback Trevor Siemian, following his injury-plagued season in 2022.

Siemian suffered an oblique injury that required surgery in his lone appearance - a warm-up - in Week 12 and ended up on the injured reserve.

The Bears have since signed P.J. Walker, who was non-tendered by the Carolina Panthers, to a two-year deal as the backup to Justin Fields. Siemian played in just two games for the Bears, throwing for 184 yards, one touchdown and one interception.

In his six-year NFL career, he has played for the Bears, Denver Broncos, New York Jets, and New Orleans Saints, completing only 58.9 percent of his passes for 7,027 yards, 42 touchdowns, and 28 interceptions in 35 games, 30 of which he started. 

Siemian will now look to secure another backup role on the open market.
