Jimmy Clausen might have leg up on Jordan Palmer
by Marty Gitlin |

Jimmy Clausen might have gotten the jump on incumbent Jordan Palmer in the battle for the backup Bears quarterback job behind Jay Cutler. The former is working with the second-team Saturday in practice, per ESPN.

Injuries have prevented Clausen from throwing an NFL pass since 2010 with Carolina. It remains to be seen if he can hang on to the backup spot with Chicago.

Jimmy Clausen leading Bears backup QB competition?
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Bears signed Jimmy Clausen back in early June to compete for the backup quarterback job behind Jay Cutler. ESPN believes that Clausen has gained enough ground on incumbent backup Jordan Palmer to be penciled in for the part. Both will compete for one spot in camp this summer as rookie David Fales figures to make the roster as a long-term developmental project.

Bears profess confidence in Jordan Palmer
by Larry Hartstein |

With Josh McCown in Tampa Bay, Jordan Palmer likely will enter the season as the Bears' No. 2 quarterback behind Jay Cutler. Jerrod Johnson is the only other QB on the roster.

"I feel very good about [Palmer],” coach Marc Trestman told the Chicago Sun-Times. "I feel good about his preparation. His work ethic is very similar to Josh’s. He spends a lot of time here. He’s taken over the tradition now of getting these new guys ready.

"At this point, you’d have to feel good about Palmer’s experience. He doesn’t have a lot of hits on him right now. He’s very much engaged in the offense."

Palmer has thrown 15 career passes. The paper said Chicago might add a quarterback before camp, but it could be an undrafted free agent.

Bears give Jordan Palmer 'a lot of credit'
by Larry Hartstein |

The Bears lost backup quarterback Josh McCown to the Buccaneers, but coach Marc Trestman said he gives Jordan Palmer "a lot of credit" for how he played in the 2013 preseason.

“He literally learned the offense on his own because we didn’t have time to work daily with him." Trestman told the Chicago Tribune. "He worked. He worked overtime and he learned the offense and came in and played admirably in the preseason. He moved the football team and was very sufficient.

“He’s got a lot of experience and not a lot of wear and tear. He’s been around a long time. Obviously, we’re going to have another one in there and see how that goes over the next couple of months.”

General manager Phil Emery expects to sign a free agent to compete with Palmer for the backup job.
