Bears sign a quarterback too, but for a lot less

Josh McCown

The Cowboys aren’t the only team doing quarterback business today.

According to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, the Bears have brought back backup Josh McCown, on a one-year deal.

While we’re guessing McCown will make roughly $107 million or so less than Romo over the course of his latest contract, he’s only one career playoff win short of the Cowboys quarterback.

Bringing McCown back became more necessary for the Bears after Jason Campbell split for Cleveland, giving them a solid veteran option.
