Bears release P McGee, DT Murnane

BOURBONNAIS, Ill. -- The Chicago Bears waived punter Richmond McGee and defensive tackle Sean Murnane on Monday.

The Bears signed McGee to a two-year contract in February. He spent parts of last season on Chicago's practice squad, and he was with the Bears during the offseason and 2009 preseason, averaging 36.3 yards on four punts while landing two inside the 20.

A member of Texas' 2005 national championship team, McGee entered the league as an undrafted free agent with Philadelphia in 2008.

Murnane was an undrafted free agent out of Central Michigan.
