Chicago Bears head coach Marc Trestman said Wednesday that Jimmy Clausen is in a "serious" competition with Jordan Palmer for the No. 2 quarterback spot. Clausen signed with the Bears in June.
Clausen was the Carolina Panthers' second round pick in 2010. That season he played in 13 games and threw for 1,558 yards and three touchdowns.
The Bears signed Clausen in June after he worked out and interviewed for the team. The Bears also drafted David Fales in the sixth round of the 2014 NFL draft.
From CSN Chicago in July:
“Right now, Jordan Palmer has the first shot at being No. 2,” coach Marc Trestman said. “We’re going to give Jordan the first shot; he’s been here the longest.”
