Chris Leak is offically an NFL quarterback

According to ESPN's Michael Smith, the Chicago Bears and former Florida quarterback, Chris Leak have agreed to a free-agent contract.

Chris Leak led his Florida Gator's to a National Championship in 2007 against the Ohio State Buckeyes and Heisman winner, Troy Smith. And unlike Smith, Leak was not selected in this weekend's NFL Draft. The details of the contract are not known at this point, but i'm sure it will be revealed sometime tomorrow.

In his 4-year career at Florida, Leak played in 51 games, he threw for 11,213 yards, 88 touchdowns and 42 interceptions. One of the biggest reasons everyone passed on Leak in the draft was his height, Leak stands at only 5'11", but is a solid athlete who can make stuff happen with his feet and throws well on the run and he is a hard worker and is very competitive. Like I said, the downfalls on Leak is his size and his arm strength is just average and never really developed into the player that he was projected to be coming out of high school. He will likely go into training camp competing for the Bears third string quarterback position.

to the Bears signing free-agent Chris Leak to a contract.

"We were happy that he is with a Super Bowl team like the Bears," his father, Curtis Leak, told the Charlotte Observer on Monday. "It's a good situation for him. That's all that matters to us. I feel great about it."
