Bears release veteran WR Ted Ginn Jr. 

Chicago moved on from Ted Ginn Jr.

The Bears released the receiver Wednesday, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source informed of the situation. The team later made the move official.

ESPN first reported the move.

The 35-year-old Ginn played in six games after signing a one-year contract this offseason. He played 43 percent of the snaps in Week 1 but didn't catch his lone target. From there, the veteran receiver quickly saw his role reduced, including being a healthy scratch in Week 2. He caught three passes for 40 yards on the season.

Last week, Ginn was a healthy scratch as the Bears giving his punt-return duties to the newly added Dwayne Harris. After watching Harris perform better, cutting Ginn was the logical move.
