The Bears on Tuesday signed rookie second-round pick Jaquan Brisker, a safety from Penn State, to a four-year contract.

With their first training camp practice set to be held Wednesday at Halas Hall, the Bears now have all 11 of their 2022 draft picks under contract.

Brisker was chosen by the Bears 48th overall with a pick they acquired as part of a trade that sent outside linebacker Khalil Mack to the Chargers.

Brisker appeared in 34 games with 21 starts the past three seasons at Penn State, compiling 152 tackles, 7.0 tackles-for-loss, five interceptions and 19 pass breakups. Last year he was named first-team All-Big Ten and second-team All-American after generating 63 tackles, 3.0 tackles-for-loss, two interceptions and seven pass breakups.

This summer, Brisker will be given every opportunity to earn a starting job opposite veteran Eddie Jackson. The rookie certainly looked the part throughout the offseason program, especially as he gained a firmer grasp of the defense.

"I feel like I grew in the playbook," Brisker said. "I got better and more comfortable and know what I'm doing, know what my teammates are doing, and just playing fast."
