Lincolnton native and Chicago Bears cornerback C.J. Wilson made the first round of cuts when the team trimmed 12 players on Sunday.
Wilson, in his second season in the NFL, has only one tackle in three preseason games, but leads Chicago with two interceptions. He grabbed his second career interception in the Bears’ 34-6 loss at Philadelphia on Friday.
The team will trim three additional players by 4 p.m. EDT on Tuesday to get down to the league’s mandatory 75-player limit, then let go of an additional 22 players by 6 p.m. EDT Saturday to reach the league’s 53-man limit.
