Late Friday night, the Bears officially announced they have agreed to terms with first-round selection Kyle Long to a four-year contract with an option for a fifth year.

The Bears haven't announced terms of the deal but with the signing, Chicago has inked each member of their 2013 draft class. 

Phil Emery used the 20th overall selection to draft Long out of Oregon and he's projected to start at right guard this season despite only starting four games for the Ducks in 2012.

Long participated in the Bears three-day rookie minicamp, but was ineligible to attend OTAs and won't be allowed to attend the team's veteran mandatory minicamp in June. Long will be allowed to stay in contact with the Bears and join his teammates in Bourbonnais in July. 

The 24-year-old Long is the son of Pro Football Hall of Famer Howie Long and the brother of current Rams defensive end Chris Long.
