With the 2022 NFL Draft in the books, front offices now turn their attention to the undrafted free agent market.
General manager Ryan Poles started the NFL Draft with just six picks, but a flurry of Day 3 trades increased that to 11 total picks.
Still, the roster has a lot of holes and the Bears need to find talent and depth at numerous positions.
Below, we’ll track every signing the Bears make.
The first move was to sign another wide receiver. Velus Jones Jr. was the lone receiver drafted by Poles.
Scarver was a consensus All-American in 2018. He also tied the NCAA and Mountain West record with seven-career kickoff returns. That makes him the third player Poles added since Friday that has serious return credentials.

The Bears still love tight ends. In Tonges’ senior year, he started 11 games and caught 22 passes for 278 yards and two touchdowns.
Cal tight end Jake Tonges and Wisconsin linebacker Jack Sanborn (a Chicago area native) are signing with the Bears as UDFAs per source.
Sanborn is a Chicago-native and played at Lake Zurich and was first-team All-Illinois. Wisconsin had the nation’s top-ranked defense in 2021 and Sanborn was a key cog. Sanborn racked up 91 tackles and five sacks in 13 starts.
Another tight end. Allen was Second Team All-Big 12 four times. In 2021, Allen caught 26 passes for 284 yards and two touchdowns.

The Bears added another DB, this time Ole Miss’ Jaylon Jones. In 2021, Jones got an extra year of eligibility because of COVID-19. He netted 25 tackles, three pass deflections and a single interception in his final season.
