Anybody at all?
Expect the Bears to sign a quarterback today. They have no other choice. The clock is ticking as Saturday night's exhibition game against the Raiders at Soldier Field approaches and they need another body because they don't want Jay Cutler to play more than a quarter and they don't want rookie Dan LeFevour to play for three quarters.
What if LeFevour got hurt?
It's a pickle, all right, especially since they don't appear willing to guarantee a backup's contract. Veterans such as Trent Green, Todd Collins and Damon Huard don't want to be preseason cannon fodder, and nobody can blame them. It's a tough situation for even a veteran to be thrown into. They would have three days to learn the offense and then be thrown into a preseason game and expected to handle extended playing time.
Brett Basanez is unavailable because he continues to recover from an injured wrist. The Bears had Mike Teel in camp but he injured his hamstring and was released after an injury settlement, which prevents the Bears from re-signing him.
The Bears will eventually find a taker, but it's a hard sell.
