LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- The Chicago Bears have signed quarterback Matt Blanchard and receiver Terrence Toliver to reserve/future contracts.

The moves were announced on Monday.

An undrafted rookie out of Division III Wisconsin-Whitewater, Blanchard was invited to training camp last summer by the Bears. He did not make the 53-man roster but spent much of the season on the practice squad.

Toliver was undrafted out of LSU in 2011. He has not played in an NFL game, although he has spent time with Houston and Detroit.
