Currie Signs 5-Year Contract

Former Tiger wide receiver signs a five year deal with Chicago. The Bears selected Currie in the fifth round pf the 2005 NFL Draft with the 140th overall selection.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The speedy wideout finished his career tied for seventh on Clemson's all-time list for receptions (138) and sixth in receiving yards (2,030) while totaling 10 TDs and averaging 14.7 yards per catch. He started 27 of 46 career games played for the Tigers.

As a senior he earned first-team All-Atlantic Coast Conference honors, as he hauled in 61 passes for 868 yards and two touchdowns.

The 5-11, 185-pounder was an All-ACC sprinter in each of his three seasons of track-and-field. As a junior he won the NCAA East Regional title in the 100m (10.29) and earned All-American honors as a sophomore as part of the 4x100 meter relay team that won the ACC title and finished second in the nation at the NCAA Outdoor Championships.

Currie has been unable to practice because of off-season surgery to repair a stress fracture in his left foot. He'll begin training camp on the Active/Non-Football Injury list. He still counts toward the 80-man training camp roster limit and will be eligible to return to practice with the team upon passing a physical examination. Top Stories
