The Bears have released McDonald following a domestic violence arrest in Northern California that police say stemmed from him assaulting a woman who was holding a baby.
Bears General Manager Ryan Pace released a statement saying McDonald did not meet the expectations set out for him when he was signed. In December, the 49ers released McDonald. Last year, McDonald was accused in a separate domestic violence incident during August birthday party at his Northern California home. A different woman has also accused McDonald of rape. Charges have not been filed.
