Chicago Bears general manager Ryan Poles ended the draft with 11 new players, but that wasn’t enough to fill his roster needs.
So he set out to add depth 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 April 30. “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.”
