Bears sign Unga, release two others

| 3 Comments | No TrackBacks

The Bears signed running back Harvey Unga to a four-year contract on Wednesday and released defensive tackle Jimmy Saddler-McQueen and receiver Vic Hall.

The Bears selected Unga in the seventh round of the supplemental draft. BYU's all-time leading rusher is expected to compete with Kahlil Bell, Garrett Wolfe and rookie free agent Brandon Minor for a roster spot behind Matt Forte and Chester Taylor, who are almost assured of splitting time in the backfield this season.

Saddler and McQueen were rookie free agents signed after the draft.

Good. Now they can get rid of Garret Wolfe; an excellent college player who is in over his head in the pros.

Wow, a four year deal, Chicago must be really big on Harvey Unga. I think its his abilities as a pass catcher, and they might like his size at 240lbs to help out on goal line and short yardage situations. He'll probably be your 3rd back, the 4th spot is gonna be the one to watch during camp. I still say watch out for Brandon Minor, it should be interesting GO BEARS!!

Unga must be a load if you need to cut two players.
