The Bears must have worked through the night because from the time I crawled up from the man cave after midnight until the time I woke up at 6, an impressive list of undrafted free agents was published by the Trib’s Brad Biggs. Here’s the unofficial list:
DB Antareis Bryan, Baylor
DB Ryan Jones, Northwest Missouri State
WR Jimmy Young, TCU
DB Winston Venable, Boise State
DB Anthony Walters, Delaware
DB/KR Mike Holmes, Syracuse
C J.C. Brignone, Mississippi State
G Ricky Henry, Nebraska
DT Corbin Bryant, Northwestern
C Alex Linnenkohl, Oregon State
TE Andre Smith, Virginia Tech
S Dom DeCicco, Pitt
LB Mario Addison, Troy
A couple of notables in the list include a couple of big, talented DB’s who figure to fit into Lovie Smith’s Cover-2 scheme quite well.
Antareis Bryan checks in at 6-1, 195 lbs with sub-4.4 speed and a lively 40″ vertical. Jones on the other hand is 5-11, 198 with 4.46 speed who chose the Bears from among 9 offers, citing the opportunity with the Bears as the reason for signing with Chicago.
