The Bears are adding former Rutgers offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Ben McDaniels to their offensive staff, SI.com reported Friday.

McDaniels is the younger brother of Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels. Ben McDaniels’ first NFL job was on his brother’s staff in Denver in 2009, and he was the Broncos quarterbacks coach in 2010.

He spent the last two seasons at Rutgers and was offensive coordinator last season. McDaniels, 35, also was an offensive assistant for the Buccaneers in 2012-13.

    Meanwhile Manziel is adding Jack Daniels to his coke.

    Uhhh… OK. Not real sure about either the need for this move or the guy chosen to fill it.

    Replacing/upgrading some of the strength and conditioning staff would have been a much better use of payroll IMO.

    Careful Bears he and his dopey brother traded back into the first round to take T. Tebow.

    Josh sent Cutler packing from Denver, now his brother gets the privilege to work with Cutty…interesting dynamics.

    As Roddy White would say, I hope he is not a complete ‘asswhole’ like his brother.

    Hey, add Josh to the mix as well, and see if Cutler can whine his way out of Chicago like he did in Denver.

    Worth a try.

    I am sure Cutler is thrilled.
