Jordan Lynch headlines Bears' rookie UFA class

Lake Forest, IL (SportsNetwork.com) - 2013 Heisman Trophy finalist Jordan Lynch is among nine undrafted rookies to agree to terms with the Chicago Bears, the team announced Sunday.

The former Northern Illinois quarterback placed third in balloting for last year's Heisman after becoming the first player in FBS history to throw for over 3,000 yards and rush for more than 1,500 in a season. Lynch also set an FBS record for a quarterback by amassing 321 yards on the ground in a game against Western Michigan.

Chicago has listed Lynch, who measured just six feet at the scouting combine, as a running back in its official release.

Linebacker Christian Jones, who helped Florida State to the 2013 BCS national championship, was also among the Bears' college free agent additions.
