The Bears are beating the bushes for quarterbacks, and they may have interest in taking on one who's a little beat up at the moment.
The obvious hurdle is the fact the Bears team doctors can't give Newton a physical right now, per league directive.
If they were willing to trust an independent doctor, and Newton has recovered from shoulder and foot problems, they'd have a relative bargain at $18.6 million for the year, and an obvious upgrade over Mitchell Trubisky.
If well, there's a reasonable case to be made that Newton's the best of the available starting quarterback options. That's a big if, however.
But the Bears once traded four things to move up one spot in the draft to choose Trubisky second overall, so anything's possible.
