3 Quarterbacks the Chicago Bears should have signed instead of Trace McSorley

If Justin Fields' injury comes back worse than expected and the quarterback is set to miss multiple games, then the Chicago Bears should look to add help to the roster.

The Chicago Bears should have signed Colt McCoy

The guy I'd have prefered the most out of these three, plus Trace McSorley, is Colt McCoy. McCoy makes the most sense to me because he has the ability to win you a couple of football games. Tyson Bagent is the clear No. 2 quarterback on the roster, but I'd feel better about McCoy than even Nathan Peterman.

McCoy has recently tried out for the New York Jets but has yet to sign with anyone to my knowledge. He's a former third-round pick out of Texas and although 37 (that's a year older than Colin Kaepernick by the way), he's a seasoned veteran who still has plenty left in the tank.

In his long-winded backup career, McCoy has 34 touchdowns to 32 interceptions. That span includes five teams, 56 regular-season appearances and 36 starts. His record isn't great at only 11-25, but with all of his experience, he'd make for an interesting option here in Chicago. The last name on this list is an even more interesting one, but I don't think Chicago would be interested, nor do I think he'd make a good fit in the locker room. That said, he brings the most potential out of the group.
