Bears sign their fourth draft pick

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.

    Well the jury is still out on who’s going to be able to throw a block but at least we should be able to out run most teams :P

    I hope this kid turns out, but I hate when a player gets drafted because he is fast at the combine, all attributes are shown on tape.

    The offensive line.

    People are going to be surprised how much better they’ll play due to the following:

    1) No more Mike Martz
    2) No more Mike Martz play calls
    3) Mike Tice is in charge of the offense, which means blocking assignments are based on ability instead of stubbornly based on the called play.
    4) A whole off-season program
    5) Receivers who can either get open or jump up for a ball
    5) No more Mike Martz.

    …….

    Cool. You didn’t like Martz. We get it. I thought he sucked too and wished he was never hired.

    Bottom line is when the Bears won SB 20 their OL plus receiver blocking was one of the best in the league (if not THE best). When the Bears won the NFC in 2006 their OL plus receiver blocking was one of the best in the league.

    Currently the Bears blocking sucks regardless of Martz leaving and has since they went last won the NFC.

    Until they prove anything different what’s your point?

    well done Bears. I can not recall this ever hapening before. It surely gives the Bears a leg up. The point is they can all at least study. Learn the system and be ready for competition early…To the above writer…white castle food group…thats the point, Im an Eagles fan but, hats off to The Chicago Bears.
