Chicago Bears sign rookies WR Marquess Wilson and LB Khaseem Greene

Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE

The Chicago Bears sign two more of their six draft picks. That's four down, two to go.

Cliff Stein is the Vice President of Football Administration and General Counsel for the Chicago Bears, and one of his primary duties is serving as the lead contract negotiator for all player contracts. Informally he's been referred to as the Salary Cap Guru, and he's generally praised around this time every season for acting quickly in signing the rookies.

For the second straight day, the Chicago Bears have signed two players from their 2013 Draft Class.


Not one of the other 31 teams have even reached an agreement with one of their draft picks, before the Bears signed their first four.

Here's Phil Emery on Greene from the Bears website;

"What an amazing story," general manager Phil Emery said last Saturday after the draft. "Here's a guy who played strong safety. He was moved to linebacker by [then Rutgers coach] Greg Schiano, who's always trying to move the better athletes up to create more team speed, and what a response; two-time conference player of the year in his only two years in football at linebacker."

And here's Emery on Wilson:

"We felt at that point in the draft that a person of this kind of talent deserved a second chance," Emery said after the draft "His biggest sin is he walked out. He made a young decision. He's just 20. We felt very comfortable that this was a good person who made an immature decision. He's owned up to that decision. He's ready to roll. We're very excited he's with the Chicago Bears."
