Bears open to move for veteran QB

LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- A veteran contingency plan at quarterback isn't currently in place for the Chicago Bears, should Jay Cutler go down with an injury.

In the aftermath of the draft, a definitive timeline for alleviating that concern isn't known. But general manager Jerry Angelo wouldn't rule out the club making a move.

"I can't say we will [rule out adding a veteran]," Angelo said. "That could happen."

The Bears spent a sixth-round pick in the draft Saturday to take Central Michigan quarterback Dan LeFevour, who will compete with second-year players Caleb Hanie and Brett Basanez for backup roles behind Cutler. Angelo said the club in the past has taken four quarterbacks to training camp, which could very well be the case again for 2010.

Angelo said the club didn't specifically target LeFevour in the draft, but when the quarterback was still available in the sixth round, the Bears couldn't resist taking him.
