Josh McCown wants to return to the Bears as Cutler’s back-up

Today Bears’ back up quarterback Josh McCown told ESPN 1000’s “Waddle and Silvy Show” that he was informed by the Bears at the end of the regular season that the organization wanted him to return in 2014 to backup starter Jay Cutler, who signed a lucrative seven-year extension in early January.

“I think from both sides, when I left and was exiting and doing all those things, I think it was mutual that both [parties] want to keep working together,” McCown said. “I think we understand what we are coming from there. It’s just the things that I have to weigh and think about. If an opportunity does come along to start, where is that team? What kind of team is that? It’s hard to leave a team, especially as a quarterback, in an offensive structure that we have and are building with the pieces that we have. So it’s not so cut and dry that this team will give you an opportunity to be a starter so let’s go there. I think it’s weighing what all is there and what that opportunity entails. It’s going to have to look really good for me to go someplace else because my heart is in Chicago and that is where I want to be.”

McCown looked better than Cutler in some of the games he played this year.  It is not that often that you have a quarterback perform well in the NFL, especially when they are back-ups.  Expect McCown to get a good check from the Bears organization.
