The Chicago Bears are slowly, but surely, getting their five 2017 Draft picks under contract. Earlier today, multiple outlets have reported that they signed tight end Adam Shaheen, who was taken with the 45th overall pick in the second round.
The only Bears’ pick yet to sign is their top pick, quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, who went second overall. The first overall draft pick, Myles Garrett, of the Cleveland Browns, signed earlier today. With the rookie wage scale in place, the odds for a hold out are very slim, so expect Trubisky to sign any day now.
On May 11, the Bears inked fourth rounder Tarik Cohen and fifth rounder Jordan Morgan, and on May 15, they locked up their other fourth round pick, Eddie Jackson.
According to Spotrac, Cohen received a 4 year, $3,035,658 contract, with $635,658 guaranteed. Morgan’s deal was a 4 year, $2,696,038 contract, with $296,038 guaranteed. Jackson received a 4 year, $3,065,797 deal, with $665,797 guaranteed.
Contract details for the 6’6”, 278 pound tight end are unavailable at this time, but Spotrac estimates it will be a four year deal, worth $5,910,537, and a signing bonus of $2,438,573.
