The SportsXchange

The Chicago Bears became the first team on Wednesday to reach a contract agreement with their first-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Cornerback Kyle Fuller agreed to terms on a four-year contract with a fifth-year option, the team announced. The package is valued at $9.687 million and includes a $1.761 million salary cap figure for the coming season, according to

Fuller's contract is similar to the No. 14 pick in 2013, Carolina Panthers defensive tackle Star Lotulelei, who signed a four-year, $9.605 million contract with a larger $5.365 million signing bonus.

The 6-foot, 190-poound Fuller, the No. 14 overall pick, could see playing time right away in the Chicago secondary. He will join returning cornerbacks Charles Tillman and Tim Jennings.

In four years at Virginia Tech, Fuller had six interceptions and 28 passes defensed.

With Fuller agreeing to terms, the Bears have seven of their eight draft picks under contract. The exception is defensive tackle Will Sutton, a third-round pick from Arizona.
