LAKE FOREST, Ill. — The Chicago Bears have released veteran defensive end Alex Brown.

The Bears had tried to trade Brown, a former standout at the University of Florida, after signing Julius Peppers.

The 31-year-old Brown was a fourth-round selection by the Bears in 2002. He was slated to make $5 million this season.

For Chicago, he appeared in 127 career games, including 107 starts, in eight seasons. He had 483 tackles, 43 sacks, five interceptions, 16 forced fumbled and 11 fumble recoveries. He also blocked three kicks.
