Bears sign first round pick Kyle Long to 4-year deal

David Banks

The Bears now have their entire 2013 draft class in the fold and can get back to the other business of the offseason.

The Bears announced late this evening that they have reached a four-year deal with club-option fifth year, with first round pick Kyle Long.

From Chicagobears.com:

The Bears on Friday agreed to terms on a four-year contract plus an option with first-round draft choice Kyle Long, who had been the team's last unsigned pick.

Terms have not leaked out yet. The Bears, specifically contract negotiator Cliff Stein made quick work (as has been customary in recent years) of getting the draft class inked.

From Brad Biggs:


Signing first round picks has become much, much easier under the new CBA and it's been standard for deals to be four years with a fifth-year option.

Long, if you needed a reminder, did not participate in this week's OTAs because of the NFL's rule barring rookies from college's who have not had their final exams yet.

The Bears can now turn to other contract issues, such as a contract extension for Henry Melton.
