Former Gator Jon Bostic signs contract with Bears

The Chicago Bears have agreed to a four-year contract with former Florida LB and second-round draft pick Jon Bostic, the team announced on Twitter today.

Bostic started every game his final two years with the Gators, and is expected to compete with veteran free agent acquisition D.J. Williams for Brian Urlacher's old job.

Bostic made eight sacks, 19 1/2 tackles for loss and five interceptions in his four-year Florida career. He ran a 4.6-second 40-yard dash at the NFL combine and bench-pressed 225 pounds 22 times.
