LAKE FOREST, Ill. – The Bears on Monday released veteran left tackle Orlando Pace, tight end Fontel Mines and guard Tyler Reed.


Veteran left tackle Orlando Pace started 11 games in his only season with the Bears. Pace started the first 11 games at left tackle in his lone season with the Bears in 2009 before sustaining a groin injury Nov. 29 in a loss to the Vikings. He later finished the year as a reserve behind promising 2008 first-round draft pick Chris Williams.
Pace signed with the Bears April 2, the same day that Chicago acquired quarterback Jay Cutler in a blockbuster trade with the Denver Broncos.

Pace, 34, was voted to seven Pro Bowls in 12 seasons with the Rams after being selected by St. Louis with the first overall pick in the 1997 NFL Draft.

Mines and Reed were both waived/injured by the Bears Aug. 25. They've spent time on Chicago’s practice squad, but neither has appeared in a regular-season game.
