Shortly after the NFL Draft ended Saturday evening, the Bears set about signing undrafted free agents. They’ll receive guaranteed money — some more than others — and an invitation to next week’s rookie minicamp at Halas Hall. The Bears will hold minicamp practices Friday and Saturday.

Here’s a look at the players who have agreed to join the Bears:

  • Shepherd University quarterback Tyson Bagent, his school announced.
  • Arizona defensive lineman Jalen Harris, the son of former Bears linebacker Sean Harris.
  • Northwestern receiver Donny Navarro was invited to rookie minicamp.
  • LSU linebacker Micah Baskerville
  • Tulane safety Macon Clark
  • Syracuse kicker Andre Szmyt
  • UConn running back Robert Burns
  • Delaware receiver Thyrick Pitts
  • Pitt guard Gabe Houy
  • Jackson State defensive back De’Jahn Warren

Bears general manager Ryan Poles had success finding contributors in undrafted free agency last year, signing, among others, linebacker Jack Sanborn and cornerback Jaylon Jones. Tight ends Jake Tonges and Chase Allen also appeared in games last season.

Here’s a look at the players the Bears took in the 2023 NFL draft:

Round 1, No. 10 overall: Tennessee OT Darnell Wright
Round 2, No. 53 overall: Florida DT Gervon Dexter
Round 2, No. 56 overall: Miami CB Tyrique Stevenson
Round 3, No. 64 overall: South Carolina DT Zacch Pickens
