Over the weekend, the Washington Redskins made some tweaks to their roster in order to clean things up after making a couple of big moves, most notably signing defensive lineman Jason Hatcher away from the rival Dallas Cowboys and agreeing to terms on a three-year deal with another former NFC East rival in Philadelphia Eagles’ wide receiver DeSean Jackson.
In order to do so, they released linebacker Josh Hull, cornerback Ryan Mouton and wide receiver Josh Bellamy.
The played went on waivers, meaning another team could claim them if they desired.
According to Brian McIntyre, the Chicago Bears put in a claim on Bellamy and were awarded the former Louisville Cardinals’ pass catcher on Tuesday.

Bellamy went undrafted in 2012 and was picked up by the Kansas City Chiefs as a free agent and was promoted from the practice squad to the roster in December.
Bellamy spent time with both the San Diego Chargers and Redskins last season.
