LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) - The Chicago Bears have waived former Northern Illinois star quarterback Jordan Lynch.

A Heisman Trophy finalist for the Huskies last season, Lynch was trying to make the Bears as a running back after being signed as an undrafted free agent. He could still wind up on their practice squad if he’s not picked up by another team.

The Bears also released receiver Armanti Edwards, tight end Jeron Mastrud, offensive tackle Dennis Roland and center/guard Robert Turner on Friday. Rosters need to be trimmed to 53 by Saturday afternoon.
