Bears sign rookie LB Bostic

Five down, one to go.

The Bears signed second-round draft pick Jon Bostic to a four-year contract Thursday, making him the fifth of six picks to sign with the team before rookie minicamp starts Friday. Bostic, who played inside linebacker at Florida, was the No. 50 overall selection.

Before signing Bostic, the Bears also agreed to four-year deals with fourth-round pick Khaseem Greene, fifth-round pick Jordan Mills, sixth-round pick Cornelius Washington and seventh-round pick Marquess Wilson.

The only draft pick yet to sign with the Bears is first-rounder Kyle Long, an offensive lineman who played for one season at Oregon. Long, who was the Bears' top selection at No. 20 overall, is expected to join his fellow rookies this weekend at Halas Hall.
