Jordan Lynch signs with Chicago Bears

Jordan Lynch ended his college career as a Heisman Trophy finalist at the quarterback position.

Built more like a safety than a signal-caller, the Northern Illinois product went undrafted, but signed as a free agent Saturday with the Chicago Bears.

While the Bears drafted quarterback David Fales in the sixth round, coach Marc Trestman still wanted to add Lynch to the roster.

The question is whether Lynch will remain in the quarterback room or move to another position. During the draft process, some scouts viewed him as an in-the-box safety, while others saw him as a short-yardage running back.
