...at least that's what being speculated right now.
Chris signed with the Chicago Bears as a free agent within hours of the conclusion of the draft, his father Curtis Leak said Sunday. Bears officials said they could not confirm free agent signings until Monday, but Curtis Leak said his son is expected to be at the Bears' minicamp next week.
"His agents had a bunch of offers, and he chose Chicago," Curtis Leak said. "It's a real good situation."
This story is also up on the Charlotte Observer's website.
That was very quick. Good luck to Mr. Leak. We'll save the jokes about short, sporadic former Florida QBs on the Bears until Tomorrow, at least.
Update - 10:15 pm: Ok, so now the Gainesville Sun has a nice list up of Gators who have signed as undrafted free-agents in the last few hours since the draft has completed.
Seven other undrafted Gators also signed free-agent contracts Sunday night. Fullback Billy Latsko signed with Carolina, center Steve Rissler with Dallas, wide receiver Jemalle Cornelius with Buffalo, cornerback Reggie Lewis with Buffalo, defensive tackle Steven Harris with Denver, linebacker Brian Crum with Kansas City and punter Eric Wilbur with the Houston Texans. Linebacker Earl Everett was weighing offers and was expected to sign with a team on Sunday night.
