Bears sign quarterback Mark Sanchez to 1-year deal

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) The Chicago Bears continued their quarterback makeover Friday by signing veteran Mark Sanchez, who is expected to back up Mike Glennon next season.

Chicago is coming off a season in which it went 3-13 and finished last in the NFC North. The Bears cut quarterback Jay Cutler this month after eight seasons and the next day signed Glennon of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a three-year deal.

Sanchez, signed to a one-year contract, gives them an experienced backup. With three quarterbacks, including developmental prospect Connor Shaw, the Bears now have some flexibility to address other positions in the draft next month.
