Bears sign 12 undrafted free agents
The Chicago Bears, who had only five draft picks, the fewest in nine years for general manager Jerry Angelo, have bulked up with undrafted free agents.
The team has agreed to terms with 12 players and they are all expected to take part in the club’s three-day minicamp that will begin Friday at Halas Hall.
The Bears signed Bowling Green wide receiver Freddie Barnes, UTEP cornerback Cornelius Brown, Montana offensive tackle Levi Horn, Michigan wide receiver Greg Mathews, Indiana linebacker Matt Mayberry, Michigan running back Brandon Minor, Nicholls State wide receiver Antonio Robinson, Texas A&M-Kingsville defensive tackle Jimmy Saddler-McQueen, Northern Iowa safety Quentin Scott, Nebraska defensive end Barry Turner, Colorado State center Tim Walter and Ohio State defensive end Lawrence Wilson.
The Bears typically bring in as many as two dozen players on a tryout basis for the rookie minicamp.
