Bears sign seven draft picks

Posted by Josh Alper on May 6, 2022, 4:21 PM EDT

The Bears got more than half of their 2022 draft class under contract on the first day of their rookie minicamp.

Seven of the team’s 11 picks agreed to their four-year deals on Friday. All seven of the picks were made last Saturday on the final day of the draft.

Fifth-round tackle Braxton Jones, fifth-round defensive end Dominique Robinson, sixth-round running back Trestan Ebner, sixth-round center Doug Kramer, seventh-round guard Ja’Tyre Carter, seventh-round safety Elijah Hicks, and seventh-round punter Trenton Gill have signed with the team. The Bears also signed 16 undrafted free agents on Friday.

Second-round cornerback Kyler Gordon, second-round safety Jaquan Brisker, third-round wideout Velus Jones, and sixth-round offensive lineman Zach Thomas remain unsigned.

Man it is good to have Cliff back! What a stupid move it was to get rid of him. Says a lot about the new staff to recognize that and get him back where he belongs.

Train like you are 2nd, but play like you are 1st.

Another Pace misstep! I know I was hard on Pace, but now the justification just keeps piling up.

Roster Move: Bears sign rookie Zachary Thomas

May 16, 2022 at 03:07 PM

Bears Senior Writer

The Bears on Monday signed sixth-round draft pick Zachary Thomas, a tackle from San Diego State, to a four-year contract.

The versatile 6-5, 308-pounder started games at right tackle, left tackle and right guard during six seasons with the Aztecs. He redshirted as a true freshman in 2016 and took advantage of an additional year of eligibility due to COVID-19 in 2021.

Thomas became San Diego State's starting right tackle in 2019, opening the final nine games, and remained there in 2020, earning second-team all-Mountain West honors. Last season he moved to left tackle, opening 12 contests and being named first-team all-conference.

Thomas was teammates at San Diego State with his younger brother, Cameron, a defensive end who was drafted by the Arizona Cardinals in the third round.

Thomas is the eighth of the Bears' 11 draft picks to sign his rookie contract. The only remaining unsigned selections are the top three choices: second-round cornerback Kyler Gordon, second-round safety Jaquan Brisker and third-round receiver Velus Jones Jr.

Bears sign Velus Jones

Posted by Josh Alper on May 17, 2022, 6:00 PM EDT

Wide receiver Velus Jones has signed his first NFL contract.

The Bears announced Jones’ signing on Tuesday afternoon. The third-round pick agreed to a four-year deal with the NFC North club.

Jones caught 120 passes for 1,434 yards and 11 touchdowns over 61 games at USC and Tennessee. He also had a pair of kickoff returns for touchdowns and averaged 15.1 yards as a punt returner, so offense may not be the only route to early playing time for Jones.

Given the makeup of the Bears wide receiver group beyond Darnell Mooney, he should get every chance to show that he can make an impact on offense.

Second-round picks Kyler Gordon and Jaquan Brisker are the only unsigned Bears draft picks.
