Could quarterback Josh McCown be returning to the Chicago Bears this season?
Head coach John Fox confirmed during his press conference that he met with the former Bears quarterback for breakfast this morning. McCown was released by the Buccaneers a few days ago and has drawn some interest from other teams.

McCown had a breakout season with the Bears in 2013 before signing with the Bucs in the offseason. But it sounds like Fox likes the idea of having McCown back on the team.
“He’s the right kind of guy … that you want on your football team,” Fox said during his press conference on Wednesday.
It was an interesting vibe from Fox who publicly complimented McCown but sounded unsure about current quarterback Jay Cutler.
McCown is expected to meet with one other team at the Combine and others after.
