The Chicago Bears and first-round pick OG Kyle Long agreed to terms Friday, May 17, on a four-year contract with a club option for a fifth year. Financial terms of the deal were undisclosed. Long is the last of the picks from the 2013 NFL Draft to sign with the team.

Chicago Bears general manager Phil Emery isn't worried that OT Gabe Carimi has been absent from organized team activities this week. "This is a voluntary situation, and every player has to make his own decisions," Emery said. "Gabe has made a decision that he wants to stay in Arizona and train, and we respect that. And he'll be welcomed with open arms when he comes back." The team drafted OT Kyle Long in the first round of this year's draft, and it's assumed that Long will take Carimi's guard spot, leaving Carimi to battle for a starting job. Carimi told the team that he'd be skipping OTAs after their minicamp in April.

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler is happy to see the team's management made protecting their quarterback a priority after adding to the offensive line through free agency and with two draft picks. The team added OT Jermon Bushrod and OG Matt Slauson via free agency, and then picked OG Kyle Long with the 20th overall selection in the 2013 NFL Draft before selecting OT Jordan Mills in the fifth round. "(The coaching staff is) going to make sure everyone knows their assignments and we are protected," Cutler said in a radio interview.
Fantasy Tip: The additions should give Cutler more time to find open receivers, and should add to his statistics. As long as WR Brandon Marshall remains healthy, Cutler has a top-notch target to make him a low-end No. 1 QB, or solid No. 2 for those leagues which require two starters at the position.

The Chicago Bears selected Oregon OG Kyle Long with the 20th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.
Fantasy Tip: The ongoing efforts to give Jay Cutler time to throw continue. It'll help his worth in this creative offense that makes him one of the most intriguing fringe QB1 assets. He's still safer to draft as a backup, though.
