Yesterday the Bears released Tre McBride, a wide receiver whose 92-yard performance in Week 8 against New Orleans is the best single-game receiving performance for any player on the team this year. McBride also played on 78 percent of the team’s offensive snaps in Sunday’s loss to the Eagles.

McBride only has 144 yards this whole season, so it’s not like the Bears just cut a super-productive star. But why now? Beat writers asked head coach John Fox directly if McBride was involved in an argument, and Fox wouldn’t answer.

But Fox did offer one explanation for McBride’s release.

“We don’t know exactly what we’re doing.” Oh, John, we knew that already.
