The Chicago Bears are making quick work of their 2013 draft class. Bears negotiator Cliff Stein inked two more deals, agreeing to terms with fourth-round choice Khaseem Greene and seventh-rounder Marquess Wilson. Both signed four-year deals.
The 6-1, 241-pound Greene was selected by Chicago in the fourth round (117thoverall) of the 2013 NFL Draft. He started 39 of 51 games played at Rutgers recording 387 tackles, an NCAA record 15 forced fumbles, 32.5 tackles for losses and 11.5 sacks. Greene added 10 pass-break ups, seven interceptions, six fumble recoveries and 34 special teams stops. Greene was considered a steal in the fourth-round. Many observers had him pegged as a potential second rounder.
The 6-4, 184-pound Wilson was selected by Chicago in the seventh round (236th overall) of the 2013 NFL Draft. Wilson appeared in 33 games with 28 starts in three seasons at Washington State, finishing his career first in school history with 3,207 career receiving yards, the ninth-most in Pac-12 history. He recorded 189 receptions and 23 receiving touchdowns, both second most in school annals. Wilson also set school records with 14 100-yard receiving games and four 150-yard receiving games. He quit the team in November of this past season, alleging poor treatment by Washington State coach Mike Leach. Wilson later recanted his story, but wasn’t welcomed back by the coaching staff or school for the annual pro day event.
The Bears have reached agreement with four of their six 2013 Draft picks.
