Bears Signing Undrafted Hometown Talent

Per Windy City Gridiron, our Bears blog, we learn that the Bears are picking up plenty of players, and a couple of them are Chicago natives:

League sources said that wide receiver Freddie Barnes, who caught 155 passes for 1,770 yards and 19 touchdowns last season for Bowling Green, and Indiana linebacker Matt Mayberry will sign free-agent contracts with the Bears.

Both Barnes and Mayberry made pre-draft visits to Halas Hall and were given workouts. Barnes, a Homewood-Flossmoor product, had some of the best hands of any receiver in the draft. Mayberry, a Hinsdale South product, chose the Bears over the Atlanta Falcons.

The list of the Bears' post-draft signings has grown to ten. To keep up, head on over to Windy City Gridiron.
