The Bears have released veteran guard Terrence Metcalf.

A third-round draft pick by Jerry Angelo in 2002, Metcalf made 25 career starts with the Bears.

He was expected to be the starting left guard last season until arthroscopic knee surgery in training camp sidelined him. Then, he was suspended for four games for violating the league’s policy on anabolic steroids and related substances.

Metcalf became expendable when the team signed Frank Omiyale at the start of free agency. The Bears also have veteran Dan Buenning for depth.
