The Bears have already signed a quarterback this offseason in Mike Glennon but are reportedly interested in Mark Sanchez for depth. Sanchez is scheduled to visit the bears this Thursday.
Sanchez never lived up to his true potential in the NFL, he was drafted fifth overall in 2009 and has played for the Jets, Eagles and Cowboys in his career with a record of 86 touchdowns and 86 interceptions overall. While he was able to lead the Jets to two back-to-back AFC Championship Games in 2009 and 2010, that feat was largely attributed to his teammates. During those two seasons he threw combined 29 touchdowns and 33 interceptions.
What he did become infamous for was the buttfumble against the Patriots and has gone down as one of the worst plays ever in the NFL. Sanchez took the snap, started to scramble up the middle where there was no room and ran into the behind of his lineman Brandon Moore. He subsequently fumbled the ball which was recovered by Gregory and taken into the end zone of six.
The last time he was playing consistently was in 2014 with the Eagles where he threw for 2,418 yards, 14 touchdowns and 11 interceptions in 9 contests. He played behind Prescott in Dallas and had just 18 attempted passes in 2016.
While he is not the man to turn around the Bears fortunes, the good news is that Glennon will more than likely be the started so Chicago are looking to add depth more than anything else. It would at the least be a backup with NFL experience who would only need to step in if needed.
