Greene, Greg McCoy and James Brown, cornerbacks Cornelius Brown and Isaiah Frey, guard Ricky Henry, safety Mark LeGree, defensive tackle Jordan Miller, tight end Brandon Venson, defensive end Aston Whiteside and linebacker Jabara Williams.

Chicago also terminated the contract of the following veteran players: linebacker Xavier Adibi, defensive end Chauncey Davis, receiver Rashied Davis, and defensive back Jonathan Wilhite. Defensive tackle Nate Collins was placed on the reserve/suspended list.
