LAKE FOREST, Ill. Cheap Custom Hockey Jerseys . -- A person familiar with the situation said the Chicago Bears plan to release kicker Robbie Gould, ending an 11-year run with the most accurate kicker in franchise history, a person familiar with the situation said.The person spoke Sunday night on the condition of anonymity because the move had not been announced. ESPN first reported the news.Gould had quite a run with the Bears, becoming their most accurate kicker ever at 85.4 percent and career scoring leader with 1,207 points.Gould had a rough stretch last season after making his first 15 field-goal attempts, though he wound up converting 84.6 percent. He made 5 of 6 field goals in the preseason but missed two extra points in the final exhibition against Cleveland. And with two years remaining on his contract, the Bears are parting ways.An undrafted player out of Penn State in 2015, Gould signed with Chicago early that year after being released by New England and Baltimore and rose to stardom. He helped the 2006 team reach the Super Bowl and was the only player remaining from that squad.The Bears also signed tight end Logan Paulsen and claimed center Eric Kush and cornerback Crevon LeBlanc off waivers on Sunday.Offensive lineman Cornelius Edison, defensive back Demontre Hurst and tight end Khari Lee were waived to make room on the roster.Paulsen played in 75 games for Washington over five seasons, finishing with 79 receptions for 801 yards and six touchdowns. But he missed last year with an injury and was released on Saturday.Kush also was cut Saturday after appearing in seven games with the Rams last season. LeBlanc, an undrafted rookie out of Florida Atlantic, played 141 snaps and had an interception for New England during the preseason, but was released by the Patriots over the weekend.The Bears signed six players to their practice squad, including former Harvard tight end Ben Braunecker and wide receiver Daniel Braverman, a seventh-round pick in this years draft out of Western Michigan.---AP NFL website: http://www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Custom Adidas NHL Jerseys . -- Patrick Reed got an early start in golf. Custom Hockey Jerseys China . But what about the officials? Every sport has officials and they also have stories about hard work and sacrifice but their accomplishments are seldom recognized by anyone outside their inner circle. http://www.customhockeycheapjerseys.com/ . The Cincinnati Reds remain perfect with their speedy rookie outfielder in the starting lineup. Tony Romo is hurt again, the defending champs get no respect and the rookie quarterback who wasnt drafted No. 2 overall got a starting job first.No division is more up for grabs than the NFC East.The Dallas Cowboys are Dak Prescotts team while Romo is out with a back injury. The fourth-round pick out of Mississippi State has been impressive in the preseason, climbing from No. 3 on the depth chart following injuries to Kellen Moore and Romo.After winning the division in 2014, the Cowboys fell to 4-12 last season and were 1-11 without Romo when he was twice sidelined by a broken left collarbone.The offense could survive without him if Prescott is the real deal, Dez Bryant stays healthy and No. 4 pick Ezekiel Elliott lives up to the hype.While Prescott has a chance to play, Carson Wentz will sit behind Chase Daniel despite projected starter Sam Bradford being traded to the Vikings on Saturday for a pair of draft picks, including a first-rounder in 2017. The Eagles traded a slew of picks to select Wentz at No. 2 in the draft, but he was slated to be the No. 3 quarterback long before injuring his ribs in the preseason opener.The Eagles should be rebuilding under new coach Doug Pederson, but every team is a contender in this weak division. Before being dealt, Bradford had looked sharp in Pedersons offense and the defense is vastly improved under defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz.Kirk Cousins had a breakout year to lead the Redskins to a division title in 2015. But no team has repeated in the East since the Eagles won four straight from 2001-04.The Giants wont have Tom Coughlin on the sideline for the first time since 2003. Offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo replaced him, so Eli Manning, Odell Beckham Jr. and Co. will have continuity. A revamped defense could help New York end its four-year playoff drought.Heres some things to know about the NFC East:GIGANTIC GIANT: Defensive end Olivier Vernon, a major free-agent addition, was dominant in the preseason. The Giants spent $40 million, for this season, to re-sign Jason Pierre-Paul and sign Vernon, defensive tackle Damon Harrison, cornerback Janoris Jenkins and linebacker Kennan Robinson. Custom Hockey Shirts. They drafted cornerback Eli Apple in the first round to upgrade the secondary. The offense will score points. If defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo gets the most out of his group, New York should rise to the top.KIRKS CREW: Cousins earned himself a one-year contract worth $19.95 million on the franchise tag after throwing for 4,166 yards and 29 touchdowns. Robert Griffin III is gone, so theres no quarterback controversy in DC. But Cousins still has to prove himself after the team didnt give him a long-term contract. The Redskins gave All-Pro cornerback Josh Norman a $75 million, five-year deal to bolster the secondary. Norman better walk his talk after criticizing Beckham, Bradford and others.GANG GREEN: There hasnt been this much excitement surrounding the Eagles defense since Jim Johnson was calling the shots. Schwartz is the most accomplished defensive coordinator in Philadelphia since Johnson passed away. His defense was outstanding in the preseason, wreaking havoc and forcing turnovers. It wont be easy to maintain that success when the games count, but theyre on the right track. Defensive end Fletcher Cox got paid to be an elite player and should thrive in Schwartzs system. Linebacker Jordan Hicks returns after an injury shortened his promising rookie season. Safety Malcolm Jenkins has developed into one of the best at his position.DOOM IN BIG D: Romos latest injury is a big setback for the Cowboys, who were hoping to go from first-to-worst-to-first. But Prescott seems like an upgrade from Brandon Weeden and Matt Cassel. He also has a better supporting cast. The real problem for Dallas will be stopping other teams. Starters DeMarcus Lawrence and Randy Gregory are suspended for the first four games and Rolando McClain will miss the first 10 games of the regular season.PREDICTED ORDER OF FINISH: Giants, Redskins, Eagles, Cowboys.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org---Follow Rob Maaddi on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AP-RobMaaddi ' ' '
