Chicago Bears draftee sends farewell to Spartans

In the fourth round of the 2015 NFL Draft, the Chicago Bears selected former Michigan State Spartans running back Jeremy Langford with the No. 106 overall pick.

After Langford was drafted he sent a heartfelt message to the Spartans faithful.

I’m proud to be a bear and truly blessed to have this opportunity

Thanks to all the Spartan fans for the support the last 5 years I will bleed green forever

#BearDown

During the last two years of his collegiate career, Langford rushed for 2,944 yards and 40 touchdowns.

If he can have a fraction of that success at the next level, the Bears will have to be happy about the value they found in the fourth round.
