The Bears continue to quickly strike deals with their draft picks.
The club announced Tuesday it had agreed to a four-year contract with offensive tackle Charles Leno Jr., a seventh-round selection from Boise State.
Leno Jr. (6-4, 303) started 39 games for the Broncos. According to the club’s website, G.M. Phil Emery indicated Leno Jr. will vie for a backup role at tackle.
The Bears announced agreements with safety Brock Vereen (fourth-round pick) and quarterback David Fales (sixth-round pick) on Monday. Vereen, Fales and Leno Jr. are the first 2014 draft picks to reach contract agreements as announced by clubs.
