The New York Jets lost Chad Morton and to the Washington Redskins. However, there is a price for keeping a player off the restricted market following his third year. The Bears had to give escalators. His deal is worth $1.795 million, including a $425,000 signing bonus and base salaries of $225,000 this year, $305,000 in 2004, $380,000 in 2005 and $460,000 in 2006.
Anderson's $933,000 contract calls for base salaries of $225,000, $305,000 and $380,000 and a $23,000 signing bonus.
With sixth-round choices Joe Odom and Brock Forsey having agreed to contracts earlier this summer, eight of the Bears' 12 draft picks remain unsigned. That group includes first-round picks Michael Haynes and Rex Grossman, second-rounder Charles Tillman and third-rounder Lance Briggs.
Johnson, a 6-1, 200-pound safety, was one of four players chosen by the Bears from the University of Florida. A three-time all-Southeastern Conference performer with the Gators, Johnson started 35 of 47 career games played and registered 284 tackles and nine interceptions.
Anderson, the Bears' final selection in the draft, was a four-year fixture at right guard at the University of Pittsburgh. The 6-4, 325-pounder started 45 of 46 games played and earned all-Big East Conference honors as a senior.
