Rolle responded to the move on his Twitter page:
Signed to a three-year, $11.25 million contract last March, Rolle started in just seven games in Vic Fangio's defense before an MCL sprain ended his season in November. He also battled an ankle injury in a rough season.
The Bears face no financial penalty for releasing Rolle, as his scheduled $2.4 million salary had no guarantees.
Now 33 years old and squarely in his decline phase, Rolle will likely have trouble landing a starting job on the post-draft market.
