Sanchez, who began his National Football League career with the Jets, has played just 15 games since 2014 while bouncing between the Eagles, Broncos and Cowboys.

Sanchez, the fifth overall pick in the 2009 draft, found himself with the Dallas Cowboys in 2016 after he was unable to win the Denver Broncos' starting job in a battle with Trevor Siemian and was released. He slides in as the No. 2 behind Mike Glennon.

The Bears are still expected to strongly consider selecting a quarterback in the upcoming draft.
