Bears sign tight end Adam Shaheen to four-year contract

And then there was one.

The Bears signed tight end Adam Shaheen to a four-year contract on Friday afternoon, leaving quarterback Mitch Trubsiky as the only remaining unsigned member of their 2017 Draft class.

Shaheen, the 45th overall pick, hauled in 57 passes for 867 yards and 16 touchdowns at Division II Ashland in 2016. Shaheen was a two-time AFCA All-American during his time at Ashland.

The 6-foot-6, 278 pound Shaheen began his collegiate career at Pittsburgh-Johnstown as a basketball player. He transferred to Ashland to play football in 2014.

Shaheen will likely head into training camp as the Bears' No. 3 tight end behind starter Zach Miller and backup Dion Sims.
