AMES, Iowa — Former Princeton forward Hans Brase will finish his college basketball career at Iowa State.

Three Davenport men were treated for gunshot injuries early Sunday after a shooting on the 800 block of West 2nd Street, Davenport.

The Bears released wide receiver Eddie Royal and waived defensive lineman Will Sutton, fullback Paul Lasike and offensive lineman Cornelius Edison on Thursday.

Royal, who turns 31 later this month, had no more guaranteed money in his contract, which paid him $10 million guaranteed when he signed it in March 2015. The Bears also don’t have any dead cap on his contract.

In two seasons, Royal played in only 18 games because of injuries. He had 33 catches for 369 yards and two touchdowns last season and returned a punt for a touchdown.

Sutton was a third-round pick by Phil Emery in 2014. He battled injuries in 2015 and was placed on IR in 2016. In 36 games for the Bears Sutton had 60 tackles, zero sacks and seven passes defensed. The only Bears remaining from Emery’s draft classes (2012-14) are Kyle Long, Kyle Fuller, Ka’Deem Carey, Pat O’Donnell and Charles Leno.

Drafted out of Arizona State to be a three-technique in a 4-3 defense, Sutton did some nice work at times in the 3-4 defense at the nose tackle position, but was never consistent enough.

Lasike spent the 2015 season on the Bears’ practice squad and appeared in 10 games last season as a fullback and on special teams. The former rugby player from New Zealand had three carries and one reception.

Edison appeared in six games for the Bears in 2016.
