Four down, just two to go for Cliff Stein and the Chicago Bears as they signed a pair of their draft picks to contracts for the second straight day.  On Wednesday, the Bears added their fifth and sixth round picks Jordan Mills and Cornelius Washington to contracts.  On Thursday, they signed fourth round draft pick Khaseem Greene and seventh round pick Marquess Wilson to another couple of four year deals. 

Greene, the Rutgers linebacker really raised some eyebrows and he’s getting a lot of post-draft buzz as a great fit for the Bears and a steal of the draft.  Wilson, the wide receiver out of Washington State, brings a lot of baggage to the Bears after leaving his team following an incident during a conditioning drill.

Cliff Stein is working at record pace, with four of the Bears’ six draft picks under contract.  Only first round pick Kyle Long and second round selection Jon Bostic remain to be signed.  The four Bears rookies are the only NFL draft picks that have signed deals.  The Bears have a rookie minicamp scheduled for the weekend of May 10th.
