Source: QB Josh Freeman visits Bears

CHICAGO -- Free-agent quarterbacks Josh Freeman and Adam Weber visited the Chicago Bears on Monday, a source with direct knowledge of the situation confirmed. The Bears also worked out tight end Matthew Mulligan, per a league source. The Bears are in the market for a reserve quarterback after Josh McCown signed a two-year deal with the Tampa Bay Bucs in free agency. The club brought back veteran Jordan Palmer on a one-year contract on March 9, but general manager Phil Emery told reporters at a recent press conference the Bears would investigate the available free agent class of...
NFC North - Lions, Bears and Packers missing veteran backup quarterbacks

NFC North - Lions, Bears and Packers missing veteran backup quarterbacks

With the bulk of free agency complete, one thing is clear in the NFC North. Three of the four teams are currently without a veteran backup quarterback. Hopes must be high that Matthew Stafford, Jay Cutler and Aaron Rodgers stay healthy. The Detroit Lions lost Shaun Hill to the St. Louis Rams and have not replaced him. Also, the Chicago Bears saw Josh McCown leave for Tampa Bay where he was named the starter by former Bears coach Lovie Smith, who is now the Bucs coach. Green Bay, the team that suffered the most last season without a veteran backup for Aaron Rodgers, was able to...

What can the Buccaneers expect out of Josh McCown

What can the Buccaneers expect out of Josh McCown

Josh McCown had an outstanding season last year, but what can we expect out of him this year, in a different place, with different players, a different system and a different schedule? Josh McCown is not an All-Pro quarterback. He's not a Pro Bowl quarterback. He's probably not even an above-average starter. But he is what the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have at quarterback, unless the rookie they will draft or Mike Glennon manages to beat him out in training camp. That begs the question: what can we expect out of him? McCown has been a career backup, who got an extended starting chance last year...

Trestman glad Josh McCown will get starting opportunity

ORLANDO, Fla. — In a few months, Josh McCown will be the enemy. McCown will be standing on a sideline opposite the Bears at Soldier Field — ex-Bears coach Lovie Smith at his side — ready to use everything he gleaned in his one season under coach Marc Trestman against his former team. And Trestman is fine with that. He’s ecstatic for his former backup quarterback. The Buccaneers jersey McCown will be wearing is unlikely to change that. “The thing about it...
