Updating a previous report, the Chicago Bears have signed free-agent QB Jimmy Clausen (Panthers) to a one-year deal. Financial terms were not disclosed. The team also waived LB Lawrence Wilson.
Huddle Up: Clausen, a 2010 2nd-round pick of the Panthers, hasn't thrown a pass since his rookie season, but will be in the thick of the hunt to back up Jay Cutler considering free-agent Jordan Palmer, 6th-round pick David Fales and undrafted free agent Jerrod Johnson currently round out the Bears' QB depth chart.

Free-agent QB Jimmy Clausen (shoulder) (Panthers) wants to compete for an NFL backup job. Clausen had right shoulder surgery Sept. 11, 2013 and spent the entire season on injured reserve.
Huddle Up: There's enough bad quarterbacking out there that Clausen could very well get a camp look with a team as a clipboard holder, but it's doubtful he'll get another crack at an NFL starting gig.
