The Bears announced on Wednesday afternoon they have agreed to terms with cornerback Kyle Fuller on a four-year contract with an option for a fifth year.
Fuller, the Bears first-round pick (No. 14 overall) out of the University of Virginia Tech, started 42-of 50 games with the Hokies. As a senior, Fuller recorded 24 tackles, two interceptions and two passes defended in nine games. He earned Walter Camp Football Foundation second-team All-American honors and first-team All-ACC honors.
The 5-foot-11, 190-pound Fuller collected 173 tackles, 23.5 tackles for a loss, six interceptions, 21 passes defended and two forced fumbles throughout his four-year college career.
Fuller becomes the seventh member of the Bears 2014 Draft Class to sign with the team. The Bears agreed to terms with safety Brock Vereen and quarterback David Fales on Monday, and defensive tackle Ego Ferguson, running back Ka'Deem Carey, punter Pat O'Donnell and offensive tackle Charles Leno, Jr. on Tuesday.
Defensive tackle Will Sutton is the only Bears draft pick that remains unsigned.
