Chicago Bears undrafted free-agent tracker: Ryan Poles adds several WRs and DBs on deals or minicamp invites

Chicago Bears general manager Ryan Poles ended Saturday with 11 newly draft players, but that wasn’t enough to fill his roster needs.

So he set out to add more depth to the team by signing a number of undrafted free agents.

Poles said he wanted his staff to sell players on being able to compete for opportunities.

“It is a crazy process,” he said. “They’re up there scrambling right now and doing a really good job. This is probably the best process — the way we started this tonight after the draft — that I’ve been a part of. Very organized. Using technology to stay connected and linked up while being in different rooms so you don’t have the noise and people scrambling and screaming. It is a crazy time.

“But I will guarantee you there will be some guys from this undrafted free agent process that are going to develop and be good players.”

Here’s a list of players who are joining the Bears via UDFA contracts or rookie minicamp tryouts, based on reports from the players, schools and others.
