The #Bears waived kicker Chris Blewitt.
The #Bears have announced they waived K Chris Blewitt. That leaves two kickers on the roster with the chance the team's kicker for Week 1 isn't on the roster right now.
Nothing against Chris.
But I’m so glad I don’t have to hear lame “Blewitt” jokes for the rest of the year. https://t.co/lFDqH0qXPJ
Chris Blewitt was probably the best of the kicking candidates in rookie minicamp (from the kicks I saw). Today he was waived.
It’s Eddy Pineiro vs. Elliott Fry now, and don’t rule out kicker-to-be-claimed-later.
Jamie Kohl (#Bears kicking consultant) also runs a high-profile kicking camp
Kickers that attended Kohl’s camp:
Kickers who didn’t attend Kohl’s camp:
Bednarski (went 12/12 on the last day of the tryout- no contract)
See a correlation?

Browns 5/10 50.0
Clutch = last 2 min. of 4th Qtr & OT when score is within 3 pts
Bears waived K Chris Blewitt today
Welp, kicker Chris Blewitt has been cut from the Bears following yesterday’s minicamp performance
The Bears have now spared themselves from the endless number of memes that were imminent if Blewitt was the kicker that survived
Los #OsosdeChicago anuncian que han cortado a Chris Blewitt. Eso solo deja a Eddy Piñero y Elliot Fry como los 2 unicos dos kickers en el roster. #FanaticOSOS #Podcast https://t.co/M1sFWmM8mO
did you really want a guy with the last name of blewitt??? Who’s the next guy you guys are looking at Nathan Dubbeldoinc?
Amazing Pitt has a QB with the last name Pickett and a kicker with the last name Blewitt
Bears Coach Matt Nagy says the team doesn’t plan on signing another K after cutting Chris Blewitt earlier today
I’m glad the Bears cut Blewitt, even though it’s based on the very irrational distrust of his last name. 😂😂😂
You just can't have a kicker named Blewitt... Bears boot Blewitt, cut number of kickers to 2 https://t.co/cHU0XcUoht
This is a good move. Anytime he’d miss you know the announcers would have a field day with his name. He kicks the ball, AND!! ... He Blewitt!!! #puns #tooeasy
Holy cow that was a stretch. You almost Blewitt right over my head!
He had a chance... and he Blewitt
With Blewitt being released today, would you have ranked him the worst of the three based on what you saw in practice or heard through sources?
You should never have a kicker named Blewitt anyway.
