The Chicago Bears released wide receiver Marty Booker on Friday, cutting ties with a former Pro Bowl selection who struggled with injuries last season.
The Bears also released linebacker Gilbert Gardner and waived
linebacker Marcus Riley.
Booker had just 14 catches for 211 yards and two touchdowns
while bothered by knee, hamstring and rib problems. He missed three
games late in the season and didn't catch a pass the final two.
He signed a two-year deal last March after spending the previous
four seasons in Miami.
Booker spent his first five seasons in Chicago before getting
dealt to the Dolphins in August 2004. He's tied for third on the
Bears' career list with 329 receptions and ranks sixth with 3,895
yards receiving. In his career, Booker has 523 receptions for 6,522
yards and 36 touchdowns.
