The Chicago Bears are very happy with what they have at quarterback in starter Jay Cutler and backup Jordan Palmer, but they still would like to add another quarterback to their roster.
Adam L. Jahns of The Chicago Sun-Times believes the Bears may be looking at a quarterback to groom behind Cutler.
Jay Cutler has his lucrative long-term deal, and Jordan Palmer has the confidence of coach Marc Trestman.
But the Bears always have been open to adding a young quarterback. It has been up for consideration for some time and likely will be during the draft in May.
“The next step in this — we got Jordan in place — is to bring in one other quarterback, whoever that player is, a young one [or] more experienced,” Trestman said at the NFL owners meetings. “We’re going to examine all possibilities.”
The Bears wouldn’t select a quarterback early in the draft, but could look to take on later on in the draft. Jahns cites Aaron Murray of the Georgia Bulldogs and David Fales of the San Jose State Spartans as potential fits.
