Connor Shaw tweets he's re-signed with Bears

There may come a point this month when Connor Shaw is the only quarterback the Bears have under contract for 2017.

Shaw, a restricted free agent, tweeted a photo Saturday morning showing him re-signing with the Bears. So for now, he and Jay Cutler are the only two quarterbacks the Bears have signed. 

The Bears claimed Shaw, who previously spent two years with the Cleveland Browns, off waivers last summer. He looked impressive in three preseason games, completing 11 of 16 passes for 127 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions before suffering a broken leg — which ended his season — Aug. 27 against the Kansas City Chiefs. Shaw also missed the entire 2015 season due to a thumb injury while with the Browns. 

With Brian Hoyer set to hit the free agent market March 9 and the Bears expected — but not guaranteed — to move on from Cutler, the 25-year-old Shaw may be the only quarterback to return to the Bears from last year’s roster.

Sometimes the best way to get yourself through a tough time is to laugh it off. They say laughter is the best medicine after all.

So when Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs reportedly agreed to a record-breaking contract extension, it's no surprise that many people took to Twitter to clown the Bears.

Patrick Mahomes' unprecedented rise to NFL stardom can be explained quite simply

Patrick Mahomes' unprecedented rise to NFL stardom can be explained quite simply

Pat Mahomes officially woke up on Tuesday as the highest paid athlete in pro sports history. 

It's especially impressive to think about considering that Mahomes didn't even start a full season until 2018. In just two years since he's been able to win a Super Bowl, league MVP, and secure close to $500 million. How did this all happen so quickly? Mahomes' agent Leigh Steinberg – who presumably set his own field's commission record on Monday, too – sat down with the Under Center Podcast back during Super Bowl media week to talk about it: 

I think so much of it was growing up with a baseball player as a father, and watching the nature of ephemeral fame and how it comes and goes. It's all about being grounded, and in this moment, and not thinking about anything except focusing on this. But also having some fun with it. We're here on Radio Row, and happens is that you have so much coverage of the Super Bowl, that if a player performs dramaticlly, they cross over out of the narrow genre of hardcore sports fans. They become an American icon.

Steinberg also (briefly) discusses Mahomes' contract negotiations and how much the Chiefs' QB benefited from sitting behind Alex Smith for a year in 2017. You can listen to the entire conversation with Laurence Holmes right here, or in the embedded player below:
