NFL Free Agency Rumors: Chicago Bears may pursue signing Brandon Weeden


The Cleveland Browns purged some veterans and cleared the way for a new group of quarterbacks to come in as Brandon Weeden and Jason Campbell have been cut. Campbell came to the Browns in 2013 after playing backup for the Chicago Bears in 2012 and now it might be Brandon Weeden continuing the Bears-Browns quarterback connection.

According to David Haugh from the Chicago Tribune, there could be interest in Weeden from the Bears thanks to head coach Marc Trestman’s love for the Oklahoma State product a few years ago.

 

The Bears recently signed Jordan Palmer to be a backup quarterback and they lost Josh McCown to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, which means there could be a need for a solid backup. Palmer knows the system but Weeden is a starting caliber talent who seems to work better as a backup.

Weeden may not be headed to Chicago, but he’s more than an intriguing option for the Bears.
