The Bears clearly don’t think they need a veteran quarterback that badly.
Todd Collins was the third one to reject an offer from Chicago, according to NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora. The sticking point was money.
“We declined their offer based on the fact there were no guarantees involved,” agent Brad Blank said.
Collins likely fears that he would just be a camp body until backup quarterback Caleb Hanie got healthy. We mentioned last night Trent Green turned them down, as has Damon Huard. Florio said this morning that Josh McCown won’t be coming either.
This whole misadventure is starting to bring back memories of Chicago’s wandering search for an offensive coordinator this offseason.
