The Chicago Bears have agreed to terms with LB Leonard Floyd on a four-year contract with a fifth-year option.
Floyd, the Bears first-round pick (ninth overall) in the 2016 NFL Draft, started 32 games in three seasons with the Georgia Bulldogs, recording 184 tackles, 28.5 tackles-for-loss and 17 sacks. He was named to the all-Freshman team in the SEC in 2013, notching 9.5 tackles-for-loss and 6.5 sacks then was recognized as the Bulldogs Defensive MVP as a sophomore, recording 8.5 tackles-for-loss and six sacks.
Floyd led the Bulldogs in sacks in his final season at Georgia, the junior notched 4.5 sacks and tied for the team lead in tackles-for-loss (10.5), earning second-team all-SEC honors from the league’s coaches.
The Bears have now agreed to terms with eight of their nine 2016 draft picks. Third-round pick DE Jonathan Bullard is the lone 2016 draftee yet to sign.
