Here's another sign the Bears' fortunes have improved since last season: Josh McCown, who started at quarterback in the Bears' regular-season finale against the Vikings in the Metrodome -- and led them to a victory -- will battle for the No. 3 spot on the roster in 2012.
The Bears signed McCown to a one-year contract Wednesday, a day after signing veteran Jason Campbell to a three-year contract as a backup for Jay Cutler. With Caleb Hanie out of the picture, Nathan Enderle, the Bears' fifth-round draft pick last season, is the fourth quarterback on the roster and likely will have to beat out McCown for the No. 3 job.
