1925: Halfback Red Grange signs with the Chicago Bears the day after his last college football game for the University of Illinois. He would receive about $100,000 for a 19-game barnstorming tour with the team. A charter member of both the College and Pro Football Hall of Fame, his signing with the Bears helped legitimize the NFL as a league.
