The Bears on Friday signed veteran quarterback Mark Sanchez to a one-year contract.
So that leaves the Bears with quite an interesting group at QB.
It's possible that the Bears do not have an interest in any of the top quarterbacks in the 2017 NFL Draft. Sanchez, 30, didn't turn into the franchise quarterback the Jets had hoped for, but he still can be a serviceable backup.
Sanchez was the fifth overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft by the Jets and spent his first five seasons in NY.More news: Starbucks in hiring spree fueled by continuing store expansion
Just a few weeks ago, the Chicago Bears looked like an obvious candidate to draft a quarterback in the first round.
But the former New York Jets, Philadelphia Eagles, and Dallas Cowboys quarterback also has this moment on his highlight reel...
"Sanchez could help Glennon deal with the scrutiny and pressure of being a quarterback in a major market", he continued.
Sanchez has thrown for 15,219 yards and 86 touchdowns with 86 interceptions in seven National Football League seasons.
As for the Bears, they are coming off an abysmal 3-13 season and haven't been to the playoffs since the 2010 campaign.
