With the Chicago Bears' rookie minicamp due to start at 10.45am CT, Bears fans have been on tenterhooks since the first wave of signings and then then those of top picks Kevin White and Eddie Goldman, wondering if master of ceremonies and all-around superman Cliff Stein would have the entire draft class put their name to paper before activities commence. Whither third round draft pick (71st overall) Hroniss Grasu?
And lo! Two score or thereabouts minutes ago, the news broke:
#Bears have signed third-round pick Hroniss Grasu to 4-year contract; all 6 of team's picks are now under contract.— Chicago Bears (@ChicagoBears) May 8, 2015
And there was much rejoicing in the land of the Bear, and their vice president of football administration and chief contract negotiator was at last able to remove the ceremonial ants from his pants for another year, much to his relief.
Now that the paperwork is out of the way, matters turn to the three-day rookie minicamp and a first look at the newest recruits. Stay tuned to WCG!
