Bears Sign QB LeFevour
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) _ The Chicago Bears have signed rookie quarterback Dan LeFevour to a four-year contract.

Terms were not disclosed Thursday. LeFevour was a sixth-round selection of the Bears, 181st overall, in this year's NFL draft.

As a four-year starter at Central Michigan, LeFevour became the Football Bowl Subdivision's all-time leader in total touchdowns with 150. His 15,853 yards of total offense rank second in FBS history.

The Bears have signed four of the five players drafted this year, including tackle J'Marcus Webb, cornerback Joshua Moore and defensive end Corey Wootton.
