When Bears general manager Ryan Pace inked him last year to a two-year, $16 million deal, with $9 million guaranteed, we all assumed he’d only see the first year of that contract.

Never since the Bears actually reinstituted the position of general manager with the 2000 hiring of Jerry Angelo has there been a draft where they had the word "steal" used so often in assessing their draft picks — that is, unless it was someone robbing them ...
