The Chicago Bears are in search of a backup quarterback after signing franchise QB, Jay Cutler to a huge extension. Rumors have linked the Bears with a number of experienced passers but according to reports Chicago are still examining the draft for a green rookie.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports today that the Bears are working out former Notre Dame quarterback, Tommy Rees and have said that a less-experienced QB might work in Chicago,

"The Bears aren’t opposed to developing a young quarterback. Matt Blanchard, a Lake Zurich graduate who starred at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, managed to impress coach Marc Trestman before an injury led to his departure last year."

Trestman is known in NFL circles as a quarterback specialist after improving the performances of both Jay Cutler and Josh McCown last season and now he could be looking toward a former Fighting Irish man to provide assistance.

Very little has been spoken about Rees in the buildup to the draft with more talk being directed to the passers at the top such as Johnny Manziel and Blake Bortles. However Rees did play four years at Notre Dame, passing for 7,670 yards and 61 touchdowns.

It remains to be seen if the Bears will be interested in Rees after the workout but there is a strong chance that the passer may be available as an undrafted free agent in May fi they want to take a closer look.
