Report: Bears on the Verge of Signing First-Round Pick Williams

Williams ready to sign

Today the Chicago Tribune is reporting that the Bears are close to signing offensive tackle Chris Williams, their first-round draft pick. The paper quotes Williams’ agent Bill Johnson as saying “we have exchanged dialogue and proposals. I respect the Bears’ diligence in working toward a timely resolution, particularly with training camp right around the corner.”

Word is Williams, who was the 14th overall pick, is set to sign a five-year deal that will pay him up to $9 mil guaranteed. The Bears roster is at 80 right now with their new big man still waiting to finish up the deal. Williams was a four-year letter winner at Vanderbilt, and appeared in 36 games at left tackle and left guard. He wrapped up his college career with 33 straight start, 24 over his college and senior year.
