LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — The Chicago Bears re-signed backup quarterback Josh McCown, agreeing to a one-year contract Friday.

The 33-year-old McCown finished the last two years with the Bears, joining them each season in November after starter Jay Cutler was injured.

In 10 NFL seasons with Arizona, Detroit, Oakland, Carolina and Chicago, he has started 33 of 50 games and completed 645 passes for 6,998 yards and 37 touchdowns.
