Chicago Bears asked Sonny Weems to take a pay cut

The Chicago Bears have asked veteran kick returner/wide receiver Eric Weems to take a pay cut from the $1.1 million base salary he is scheduled to earn in 2014. Weems is expected to be released if he declines the proposed salary reduction, per Jeff Dickerson of ESPN Chicago.

Weems signed a three-year deal, $4.25 million that included a $1.5 million bonus. His salary cap number for the upcoming season is $1.6 million, but the Bears would have to carry $500,000 worth of dead money if Weems is released, making the total salary cap savings $1.1 million.
