And then there were two.
The Bears announced that they have signed cornerback Isaiah Frey, a sixth-round pick out of Nevada. That leaves only defensive end Shea McClellin and safety Brandon Hardin unsigned among the team’s 2012 draft picks.
Frey had five interceptions in 2011, but it was a fast 40 at his pro day that lifted him into the team’s plans in the late rounds of the draft. He probably won’t get too many chances to show off that speed in the secondary as a rookie, but it could be an asset to Chicago’s special teams while figuring out how to play corner at the NFL level.
Frey joins wide receiver Alshon Jeffrey, cornerback Greg McCoy and tight end Evan Rodriguez as draftees under contract. They will join the team at this weekend’s rookie minicamp.
