QB Josh Freeman visits Bears
Josh Freeman visited the Bears on Monday, sources confirmed to the Sun-Times, as the team continues to search for another backup quarterback.
The Bears currently have one primary candidate to play behind Jay Cutler: Jordan Palmer, who has appeared in one game since the end of the 2008 season. They figure to add at least one more veteran.
A No. 17 overall pick by the 2009 Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Freeman spent 2010-12 as a team captain before that title was removed before this past season. He started the year as the Tampa quarterback, but was released Oct. 3.
He signed with the Vikings three days later, and made his lone start with Minnesota 10 days after that.
He completed 20-of-53 pass attempts for 190 yards, later revealed concussion-like symptoms and never played again for the Vikings.
