On Wednesday the Chicago Bears signed cornerback Lamar Jackson to a Reserve/Future contract, which makes him the twelfth such player added to the roster this offseason. Jackson was originally an undrafted free agent of the New York Jets in 2020 following four years with the Nebraska Cornhuskers.

Jackson spent most of the 2021 season on the Jets practice squad, but as a rookie in 2020 the 6’2”, 208 pounder started 6 of the 13 games he played in with 28 tackles and 2 passes defended. He also played on 27% of New York’s special team snaps that season.

Here are the 12 players the Bears have signed to Reserve/Future deals.
