A few months back we mentioned that the Chicago Bears were looking at some of the lower quarterback prospects in this years draft class but it was assumed that they were looking for a player that they could use as the teams backup. So far Bears offensive coordinator Mike Martz has already visited with Idaho QB Nathan Enderle and Wisconsin QB Scott Tolzien.
NFL.com’s Gil Brandt mentioned during a recent chat that this could be seen as a sign that the team isn’t exactly happy with their current group of players.
“When the head coach or offensive coordinator looks at a guy at a position, they could be dissatisfied. That could mean that they might not be sold on [Jay] Cutler. When Martz goes to Moscow (Idaho), that should tell you something,” Brandt writes.
Martz has had success in the past developing under-the-radar quarterback’s like Kurt Warner and Marc Bulger so it shouldn’t be seen as much of a shock that the team is considering the idea. As far as replacing Cutler, that’s a longshot and would require a few years to develop him before it’s even a possibility. If Cutler struggles next season you can be certain that there with be plenty rumors about his future with the team.
