The Bears are wasting no time signing members of their 2014 draft class.

The Bears announced on Tuesday afternoon they have agreed to terms with running back Ka'Deem Carey to a four-year contract.

Carey, a fourth-round selection (117th overall) out of the University of Arizona, was the Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Year in 2013. He finished second in the nation with 157.1 rushing yards per game, third in total rushing yards (1,885), and seventh in rushing touchdowns (19) in 2013.

In 36 games over three seasons with the Wildcats, Carey compiled 4,239 rushing yards and 48 touchdowns. His 48 rushing touchdowns are second in FBS history behind former University of Wisconsin running back Montee Ball.

The Bears have now signed half of their 2014 Draft picks after agreeing to terms with safety Brock Vereen and David Fales on Monday night and offensive tackle Charles Leno Jr. earlier today.
