Draft Scout Greg McCoy News
05/10/12 - CB Greg McCoy will compete for the backup kickoff returner behind Devin Hester, although the Bears have signed veteran unrestricted free agents Devin Thomas and Eric Weems, both of whom have been productive return specialists. McCoy will also contend for a backup cornerback position and is expected to contribute on special teams in coverage. The Bears have also added unrestricted free agent cornerbacks Kelvin Hayden and Jonathan Wilhite in the off-season and re-signed Tim Jennings, who started 15 games last season across from Pro Bowl pick Charles Tillman.
"(McCoy) is going to have every opportunity to compete for that fifth or sixth corner depending on how many we keep," general manager Phil Emery said following the draft. "There's going to be an awfully good competitive mix since we brought in Jonathan and Kelvin to find out who makes that team."
The Bears, who host a rookie mini-camp this weekend, are hoping to have first-round defensive end Shea McClellin, third-round safety Brandon Hardin, fourth-round tight end Evan Rodriguez and sixth-round cornerback Isaiah Frey all signed by early next week.
05/08/12 - CB Greg McCoy, a seventh-round draft pick, agreed to a four-year contract with the Bears.
