The Chicago Bears wasted no time in securing their future by signing three more rookies from the 2023 NFL draft.

On Monday, the team announced the signings of first-round offensive tackle Darnell Wright, third-round defensive tackle Zacch Pickens, and fourth-round receiver Tyler Scott.

Darnell Wright, a highly touted tackle out of Tennessee, brings versatility and experience to the Bears' offensive line.

Spotrac projects Wright’s contract at $20.968 million, including a $12.249 million signing bonus.

Defensive tackle Zacch Pickens, selected in the third round, showcased his talent and production during his time at South Carolina.

The Bears also added another weapon to their receiving corps with the signing of fourth-round pick Tyler Scott who played college football at Cincinnati.

With the signings of Wright, Pickens, and Scott, the Bears have now signed seven of their ten draft picks. Each rookie contract for draft picks runs for four years of guaranteed money.

The remaining unsigned players from the 2023 draft class include second-round defensive tackle Gervon Dexter Sr., second-round cornerback Tyrique Stevenson, and fourth-round running back Roschon Johnson.
