(CBS) Tight end Adam Shaheen, the Bears’ second-round pick, has put pen to paper and signed his four-year rookie contract.
The Bears have now signed four of their five draft picks, leaving only quarterback Mitchell Trubisky unsigned.
Shaheen, the 6-foot-6, 278-pound tight end out of Ashland University, set a school record with 16 touchdowns last in 11 games last season. He led all Division-II tight ends with 57 catches and 867 yards.
Earlier this week, the Bears signed safety Eddie Jackson, a fourth-round pick. They inked fourth-round running back Tarik Cohen and fifth-round offensive lineman Jordan Morgan last week.
The Bears return to work next week for OTAs at Halas Hall.
