Veteran quarterback Todd Collins passed on a minimum contract offer from the Bears, according to a league source.
It's believed Collins was looking for the Bears to guarantee him some money, so he wouldn't be used as a camp arm but the Bears apparently weren't willing to give him the money.
That the Bears won't guarantee any money to a quarterback is an indication that they do like Caleb Hanie as a backup and that he shouldn't be sidelined long.
UPDATE: Veterans like Collins would only make $1,400 a week during training camp. That's why he would want guaranteed money.
