Report: Bears ink wide receiver Kendall Wright to one-year deal

The Bears agreed to a one-year, $4 million deal with wide receiver Kendall Wright, according to ESPN's Adam Caplan. 

Wright, 27, provides Mike Glennon and company with more depth out wide, which is needed given top-target Alshon Jeffery's departure. Wright is a five-year NFL veteran, who has spent his entire career with the Tennessee Titans to varying degrees of success.  

After a strong 2013 season (94 catches), Wright's receptions have steadily decreased. Last year, the Baylor product caught only 29 of Marcus Mariota's passes in 11 games. He finished with three touchdowns and 416 yards. 

General manager Ryan Pace has now inked Wright and Markus Wheaton in an effort to replace Jeffery's production.

98 receptions, 1,730 yards, 17 TD

Projection:

Third round

Scouting Report:

"Slot-only receiver with the athleticism and separation quickness to win on the NFL level. Benefitted statistically from Western Kentucky's scheme, but that offense benefitted from Taylor's ability to get open and his explosiveness in the open field. High floor with the potential to be an above-average slot receiver in an offense that recognizes his flexibility." — Lance Zierlein, NFL.com

Montravius Adams, DL, Auburn

6'4" | 304 lbs.

2016 stats:

43 tackles, 8 TFL, 4 sacks, INT, 2 FR

Projection:

Second-to-third round

Scouting Report:

"Adams disappointed the scouting community with a pedestrian junior season that lacked passion and production. This season, he played with greater consistency of effort and found his way into the backfield far more often. Can be disruptive off the snap but is not the type of player to recover quickly if beaten early in the rep. He is a rotational defensive tackle for gap-attack defenses, but is unlikely to offer much as a pass rusher." — Lance Zierlein, NFL.com
