Former Minnesota Vikings quarterback, Josh Freeman met with the Chicago Bears today ahead of a potential deal for the passer to join the NFC North rivals according to Mike Garafalo.

Garafalo, an NFL insider with Fox Sports tweeted earlier: " Josh Freeman paid a visit to the Bears today. No word on a signing yet."

Freeman was released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the middle of last season and was quickly signed by the Vikings amid their quarterback problems. However, Freeman played just one game for the VIkings in 2013 and has not been offered an extension for 2014.

The Bears signed franchise quarterback, Jay Cutler to a big seven-year $126 million contract but released reliable back-up, Josh McCown.

So Chicago are in the market for a quarterback with experience, who can ably backup Cutler and step in when needed. Freeman could potentially be that man, he started in Tampa Bay and could be capable of doing so again in the right system.

The Bears also met with Adam Weber, another quarterback who spent 2013 with Tampa Bay. Weber was part of the practice squad for two years with the Buccaneers after a season with the Denver Broncos.

There has not been  any word on which quarterback, if any, the Bears will sign as the pre-draft free agency period draws to an end.
