After leading the Warhawks to three NCAA Division III National Championships, Blanchard was signed by the Bears in 2012 as an undrafted free agent, only to be waived at the start of the 2013 season. He bounced around to the Panthers, Packers, Browns, and Colts before finding his way back in Chicago in January.
The 27-year-old journeyman has yet to appear in an NFL game and was informed of his fate on Thursday.
Blanchard will be replaced on the Bears roster by rookie Dartmouth quarterback Dalyn Williams.

MADISON, Wisconsin — Finishing with a 10-6 Record plus a Playoff victory would please many NFL Fans. But in Green Bay, it’s ALWAYS Super Bowl or Bust. Next year’s version must be better and deeper to help cover the Injury bug which can crush any teams Title hopes. Eric and I got some help from Packer Nation on how to improve and rob arch-nemesis Chicago of some of their Talent:
The NFL Combine begins Feb. 23rd in Indy.
Green Bay has the 27th Pick in Round 1 of this Year’s Draft which begins April 28th.
