Robertson is the second of six 2001 Bears draft choices to have inked a multi-year contract after DE Karon Riley signed his three-year deal on June 18. Unsigned draft picks include: David Terrell (1st round), Anthony Thomas (2nd), Mike Gandy (3rd) and John Capel (7th).
BEARS AGREE TO TERMS WITH ROBERTSON
The Bears chose the offensive lineman with the seventh pick of the fifth round (138th overall) in the 2001 NFL Draft. Robertson was a four-year starter at Tulane playing mainly at right and left tackle and is expected to shift inside to guard or center as a member of the Bears. After sitting out the 1996 season as a redshirt freshman, the New Orleans native went on to earn Conference USA all-freshman honors in 1997 while starting all 11 games at right tackle. Robertson earned first-team all-conference recognition as a sophomore (right tackle), junior (left tackle) and senior (left tackle). The 6-2, 297-pounder started all 44 games he played in for the Green Wave during his career.
