Chicago Bears Agree to Terms with 7th Round Pick Greg McCoy
The Chicago Bears announced today that they have reached a 4-year deal with 7th round pick (220th overall) Greg McCoy. The terms of the deal are not known as of now. McCoy is a cornerback, but he’s manly a special teamer/kickoff returner
As a player on special teams last year, McCoy had 1,505 return yards and 3 touchdowns. McCoy is a little too small to be a cornerback as he’s only 5 feet - 10 inches. At cornerback, you usually want the player to be over 6 feet for sure. However, cornerback is not where McCoy made his name and he’s more of a pick for special teams.
Like I just said, he’s more for his kickoff abilities. However, the Bears have 2 great kickoff returners. Devin Hester whom will be returning punts and Eric Weems who will probably return kickoff returns.
I see McCoy as a longshot to make the Bears 53-man roster out of preseason. But I can see him being added to the Bears practice squad if no team picks him up. Then if Hester or Weems gets injured, McCoy can be added to the roster and return kickoffs. Let’s not hope injuries occur to either of them.
McCoy is the second draftee of whom the Bears have signed. Last week the Bears announced that they signed 2nd round pick Alshon Jeffery to a 4-year contract.
With the McCoy deal in the fold, the Bears have about 4.1 million left to sign they rest of their draft picks. In which, that is 4 players the Bears still have to sign.
We could hear more of the Bears draftees to sign in the next few days as the rookie minicamp opens up on Friday.
