Earlier today, the Chicago Bears released wide receiver Justin Hardy ahead of the 3:00 p.m. CDT deadline. Now, that the team reached the NFL's required 85-man roster, it didn't seem like additional cuts were on the horizon.

However, that changed late Tuesday afternoon as the team announced additional roster moves. As a result, Michael Joseph and Ledarius Mack have been waived.

Of course, Mack happens to be the younger brother of star EDGE rusher Khalil Mack. Nevertheless, the Bears signed Ledarius as an undrafted free agent following the 2020 NFL Draft. Unfortunately, he spent most of his time as an inactive on game days.

However, according to Pro-Football Reference, Michael Joseph has seen time with the Bears since as early as 2019. Although, no sources have indicated any actual stats logged for Joseph in the NFL.

Furthermore, a return to the Bears for either or both players is not out of the question. As it's possible they get signed to the practice squad. It's entirely plausible that a stint on the injured reserve is an option too, especially given the manner Brad Biggs has phrased his tweet. In fact, the Bears previously waived wide receiver Thomas Ives and placed him on the IR without anyone's notice.
