12:26 PM ET 02.12 | The Chicago Bears terminated the contract of wide receiver Johnny Knox Tuesday, releasing a player that spent the last four seasons in the Windy City. Knox missed the entire 2012 campaign while recovering from surgery to stabilize a vertebra after suffering a back injury late in 2011. During his time in Chicago, Knox played in 45 games and caught 133 passes for 2,214 yards and 12 touchdowns. His best season came in 2010, when he hauled in 51 receptions for 960 yards and five scores.

Maybe it should be a career for Knox. I'm just glad to see him healthy, after the injury.
