With hours left before Bears training camp kicks off, the Bears and first round draft choice Chris Williams have agreed to terms.
The new deal is for 5 years for 13 million with 9 million up. He can also earn another 3 million in incentives.
Williams impressed coaches with his talent and ability to grasp the offense during offseason workouts, but he will begin training camp behind veteran John St. Clair on the depth chart at left tackle.
Williams appeared in 36 games at left tackle and left guard at Vanderbilt, finishing his college career with 33 consecutive starts. Starting all 24 contests over his final two seasons at left tackle, Williams received first team all-SEC honors as a senior and second team all-SEC accolades as a junior.
