The Chicago Bears signed Ka'Deem Carey to a four-year contract this afternoon. Carey was drafted in the fourth round by the Bears on Saturday. He was the 117th overall pick.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed by the Bears. Khaseem Greene, the 117th pick last year, signed a four-year, $2.59 million contract with Chicago. It had $432,092 in guaranteed money.
Carey will fly to Chicago on Thursday for rookie mini-camp. The former UA and Canyon del Oro High School star is hoping to be the primary backup to Pro Bowl back Matt Forte in Chicago.
Carey was a consensus first-team All-American each of the past two seasons and is the UA's all-time career rushing leader.
The Chicago Sun-Times said Carey will compete with Shaun Draughn and Michael Ford for carries behind Forte. Draughn was signed as a free agent and Ford played mostly special teams as a rookie.
