Chicago Bears Waive Nate Enderle
Enderle was waived after two years with the Bears
Offensive coordinator Mike Martz (L) and head coach Lovie Smith of the Chicago Bears watch as their team takes on the Washington Redskins at Soldier Field on October 24, 2010 in Chicago, Illinois.
Nate Enderle won’t have to worry about whether he’ll play in a Chicago Bear’s game any longer. The club waived the second-year quarterback Thursday.
Enderle was released following the team’s mandatory three-day mini camp, according to ESPN Chicago.
Enderle, who earned a spot on the Bears 53-man roster, didn’t get much playing time on the team. He was inactive for 12 of the Bear’s 16 regular season games and didn’t play in four of the games for which he dressed.
He earned his place as a Bear after the team used a fifth-round pick following former offensive coordinator Mike Martz's trip to the University of Idaho campus, where the quarterback was put through a private workout during the pre-draft scouting process.
Before ties were cut between Enderle and the Bears, head coach Lovie Smith reaffirmed that second-string quarterback Josh McCown was the unquestioned No. 3 quarterback on the team’s depth chart.
