The Chicago Bears have agreed to terms with first round pick, wide receiver Kevin White. He signed a four-year deal worth $16.5 million with a fifth-year team option.

White is expected to be a big offensive weapon opposite Alshon Jeffrey in the Bears offensive attack with Jay Cutler at quarterback. He’s expected to fill the void of Brandon Marshall, who was traded to the New York Jets.

He’s expected to be a candidate for the Offensive Rookie of the Year in December barring any setbacks. He’s a 6-foot-3, 215 pound wide receiver, who was dominate at West Virginia.

He wasn’t the only draft pick to sign with the team today. Second-round pick, defensive tackle Eddie Goldman out of Florida State also signed a four-year deal.

Goldman is a two-down run stuffer, according to many draft projections. He’s going to be a nose tackle for Vic Fangio, the team’s new defensive coordinator under new head coach John Fox.

The Bears are expected to transition from a 4-3 defense to a 3-4 defense with Fangio.

Both White and Goldman are expected to be starters in GM Ryan Pace‘s draft.

Besides White and Goldman being signed, they join Jeremy Langford, Adrian Amos, Tayo Fabuluje. Only third-round center Hroniss Grasu hasn’t signed yet.

Langford was the team’s fourth-round draft pick, while Amos was drafted in the fifth round. Fabuluje was their sixth round pick.
