The team released him earlier today, as the emergence of Israel Idonije gave the team the luxury of dumping Grant after about a month on the roster.
Grant had joined the team on a one-year deal after the Bears terminated the contract of defensive end Mark Anderson.
The team felt that Grant would contribute as an edge rusher but it never happened and he was inactive for the two games he was on the Bears’ roster.
Grant as a first round pick by the Saints in 2002, and last season played in the teams 16 regular season games and playoff games, with 5.5 sacks. He has 47 career sacks with 431 tackles in 118 games.
