We've discussed the possibility of Chicago adding a veteran backup quarterback behind Jay Cutler and floated the name of free agent Marc Bulger, who has extensive experience playing under new Bears offensive coordinator Mike Martz. Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports the Bears are likely also to have interest in veteran Josh McCown, who spent last season on injured reserve with Carolina.

(Not to be confused with Cade McNown, of course.)

McCown worked under Martz in 2006 when both were with Detroit. He didn't throw a pass that season, however, after Jon Kitna won the starting job. His primary attribute would be experience, something current backup Caleb Hanie can't boast of.
