  • Bears first to sign first round pick

    Chicago signs first-round pick Olsen to five-year deal

    LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — The Chicago Bears signed first-round draft pick Greg Olsen to a five-year contract on Tuesday, making the tight end from Miami the first player taken in the first two rounds to agree on a deal.

    The 31st overall pick, Olsen was the first tight end taken in the opening round by the Bears since they chose Mike Ditka from Pittsburgh in 1961.

    Olsen had 87 receptions for 1,215 yards with six touchdowns in three seasons with Miami, leaving after his junior season.

    The Bears have signed eight of nine draft picks, the exception being second-rounder Dan Bazuin, a defensive end from Central Michigan.

      It would be smart of them to give him a chance to win that position. Grossman (though he made me a ton of ff points at the start of the season last year) isn't the answer in Chi-town and is holding them back IMO.
      Ready for the friggen season already!

          If the Bears were that committed to winning they would have gone after somebody new at QB. I think it's pretty obvious that Rex Grossman cannot consistently win games.

          It's a good thing Jay Cutler was a proven winner in college. Oh wait, nevermind.
