Bears sign former Arizona Cardinals cornerback Marcus Cooper

The Bears added secondary help on Saturday afternoon, signing free agent cornerback Marcus Cooper. 

According to Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times, it's a three-year deal for the former Arizona Cardinals defensive back. 

Cooper has turned his 2013 seventh-round draft status into a solid NFL career. The fourth-year man out of Rutgers enjoyed his most successful season last year, tallying a career-high in interceptions (4) and tackles (63). He spent his first three seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs. 

Cooper joins newly-acquired Quintin Demps as secondary additions. The two will help try and turn around a defense that struggles to force turnovers. As a team, the Bears only picked off eight passes last year.

Takkarist McKinley, OLB, UCLA

6'2" | 250 lbs.

2016 stats:

61 tackles, 18 TFL, 10 sacks, 6 PD, 3 FF

Projection:

First round

Scouting Report:

"Ascending edge prospect who racked up impressive TFL and sack numbers this year despite a relatively raw approach and skill set. He's a little stiff in his lower body, but flashes good athleticism once the ball is snapped. McKinley's motor is a translatable characteristic, but improved hand usage and pass rush mechanics are what could elevate his game to another level as a starting, 3-4 outside linebacker. " — Lance Zierlein, NFL.com

Scouting Report:

"System quarterback with more than 65 percent of his attempts coming inside of 10 yards. Webb has enough raw talent to be considered a developmental prospect, but his decision-making and accuracy issues beyond 10 yards is a big red flag that might be tough to overcome in the NFL." — Lance Zierlein, NFL.com
