Say what you will about Caleb Hanie and Brett Basanez, but maybe the Bears are still a little uncertain of their backup QBs. According to this article, we made a play for Andrew Walter, who recently signed with the Patriots (see #5).
There aren't many names that are left out there that are intriguing free agents (Bollinger, Dorsey, Green), so I wonder what will happen if Hanie and Basenez fail to impress during the preseason? Brad Biggs mentions that neither have stood out in training camp thus far.
Caleb Hanie and Brett Basanez have not done a lot to stand out a training camp that has been dominated by Cutler. Hanie has flashed his ability to keep plays alive with his legs, and Basanez has made the occasional throw. The test for them will come when preseason begins and Hanie is expected to receive plenty of work Saturday at Buffalo. Basanez is the only one with NFL game experience. He threw 11 passes at Carolina in 2006. Stay tuned.
Only six more days until Preseason Game #1!
