Chicago Bears sign fourth round pick Ka'Deem Carey

The Chicago Bears signed their fourth member from their 2014 draft class as they have inked fourth round pick and former Arizona running back Ka’Deem Carey to a deal, leaving only four of their draft picks to sign to a deal.

Carey led the nation in rushing in 2012 with 1,929 yards and finished third this season with 1,885 when he ran for at least 112 yards in each game. He was a consensus All-American each of the last two seasons and is the all-time rushing leader for the Wildcats. The Bears needed a backup to Matt Forte and Carey should see some work as a rookie as the No. 2 back.

Under the new rookie wage scale, the Bears have been quick to sign their draft picks to deals as salary cap guru Cliff Stein and the Bears work to get all of their players signed before some teams even sign their first draft pick.

Bears left to sign their contracts include first, second, third and sixth round picks Kyle Fuller, Ego Ferguson, Will Sutton and Pat O’Donnell, respectively.

At this rate they may have them all signed by the end of the week when the team brings them for the first rookie practice.
