Tight end Fendi Onobun set to be released by the Bears after minicamp
Bears coach Marc Trestman said the team has started their roster evaluations with mandatory minicamp concluding. And one player who won’t be coming back is tight end Fendi Onobun.
Trestman wouldn’t confirm any roster moves when he met the media on Thursday. But a source confirmed that Onobun would be released.
Onobun, a former college basketball player with limited football experience, spent all of last season on the Bears’ practice squad after initially being cut after the presseason. It was the most time he’d spent with one organization.
Onobun, a close friend of Martellus Bennett’s, was very involved in the Bears’ offseason training. He even went to Florida twice for the workouts and activities organized by receiver Brandon Marshall.
