The Bears on Thursday released tight end Dion Sims.
Sims appeared in 22 games with 18 starts in two seasons with the Bears, catching 17 passes for 189 yards and one touchdown. He started all 14 contests he played in 2017, recording 15 receptions for 180 yards and one TD.
Sims played sparingly in the first eight games in 2018, catching two passes for nine yards, both in the season opener against the Packers. He sustained a concussion Nov. 4 in Buffalo and missed the rest of the season.
Sims signed with the Bears in 2017 after spending his first four NFL seasons with the Dolphins. Appearing in 56 games with 22 starts for Miami, he caught 74 passes for 699 yards and eight touchdowns. He was selected by the Dolphins in the fourth round of the 2013 draft out of Michigan State.
