While the Chicago Bears refrain from confirming any undrafted free agency signings, the team has reportedly agreed to a rookie contract with former Northern Illinois starting quarterback Jordan Lynch.
ESPN Chicago reports that the signing was confirmed by Lynch’s agent.
Lynch was a dynamic offensive playmaker for the Huskies during his time at Northern Illinois. At the end of his collegiate career, Lynch compiled 6.209 passing yards with 51 touchdown passes against only 14 interceptions. Lynch was equally successful on the ground as he was through the air. Lynch finished his Huskies’ career with a total of 4,343 rushing yards to go along with 48 rushing touchdowns.
During his training for his NFL career, Lynch has gone on record as saying he would prefer to remain at the quarterback position. Though, unlike his comparison–Tim Tebow, Lynch is willing to move from the quarterback position if need be. Lynch worked out at multiple positions for NFL scouts during the winter.
Speculation has suggested that Lynch could play at the safety or running back position in the NFL.
