The Chicago Bears continued to build their class of undrafted rookie free agents Tuesday, agreeing to a deal with Ohio State receiver Dane Sanzenbacher, according to a source familiar with the situation.

Sanzenbacher was a first-team All-Big Ten selection in 2010 after leading the conference in receiving yards (948) and touchdown catches (11).

The team announced it has agreed to terms with:

Teams were able to start signing rookies Tuesday at 9 a.m. CT.

DeCicco (6-foot-3, 232 pounds) split time as a senior at Pittsburgh playing strong safety and weakside linebacker, and led the Panthers with 94 tackles (67 solos), and five interceptions.

A former teammate of Bears second-round pick Stephen Paea and former three-year starter for the Beavers, Linnenkohl (6-foot-3, 303 pounds) was named All-Pac 10 as a senior, but missed the final portion of the season because of a severely sprained ankle.

Smith (6-foot-5, 259 pounds) developed a reputation as a strong blocker at Virginia Tech, where he also caught 20 passes for 195 yards and five touchdowns as a senior.
