Bears Looking For Veteran Backup to Jay Cutler

For some reason, the Chicago Bears recently offered quarterback Todd Collins. Thankfully it was rejected according to his agent, Brad Blank. NFL.com reported that Blank had asked the Bears for a small signing bonus, but the Bears said no, offering just the veteran minimum contract.

"We declined their offer based on the fact there were no guarantees involved," Blank said.

The Bears have been riding without a veteran backup to Cutler for over a year now, and it seems more than foolish. Todd Collins couldn't throw harder than me when he came out of college. Jeff Garcia is available. If Jay Cutler can learn the Martz offense in one offseason, I guarantee that a Garcia could too, especially considering that he wouldn't be needed right away.

NFL.com also reported that Collins is the third quarterback to reject the Bears, along with broadcaster Trent Green and Damon Huard. If they are just looking for a training camp practice QB, why go after 40-year olds and retired players? If they are looking for a true option to back up Cutler, why go after 40-year olds and retired players? (See what I did there?)
