Jerry Rice said that the Chicago Bears needed to sign an impact receiver. While Andy Fantuz might not be that, the Bears signed him to a reserve/future contract on Friday.

Fantuz played last season in the Canadian Football League.

The native of Ontario spent five years with the Saskatchewan Roughriders and led the CFL with 1,380 yards receiving on 87 catches and six touchdowns this past season. Overall, he had 276 receptions for 4,136 yards and 23 touchdowns.
