Bears ink Harvey Unga

Less than a week after the Chicago Bears drafted Harvey Unga in the supplemental draft, he’s under contract.

The Bears signed the BYU running back to a four-year contract and he receives a signing bonus believed to be worth about $60,250. He is expected to compete for the third running back job although the Bears, who are inexperienced at fullback, could also throw him in the mix at that position.

To make room for Unga, and quarterback Mike Teel, the Bears placed wide receiver Vic Hall and defensive tackle Jimmy Saddler-McQueen on waivers. Hall was an undrafted free agent from Virginia and Saddler-McQueen was an undrafted free agent from Texas A&M-Kingsville.

Chicago is expected to sign Teel to a contract today, according to a league source. After adding him, the team will be at the roster limit of 80. The Bears report to training camp at Olivet Nazarene University in Bourbonnais, Ill., on July 29.
