Sad news to report today.

Former Chicago Bears tight end Ryan Wetnight has lost his battle with cancer on Friday morning according to multiple reports.

Wetnight played eight seasons for the Bears from 1993-1999 and was the backup tight end behind Keith Jennings and Chris Gedney.

During his NFL career, he caught 175 passes for 1,542 yards and nine TDs in 101 games (Bears and Packers).

BearsHQ would like to give out our most heartfelt condolences to his wife Stacey and their two sons Zach and Scott.
