If Angelo decides to court Bledsoe, it wouldn't be the first time. Following the '01 season the Bears contemplated trading for the four-time Pro Bowler, but decided the price of a future first round pick was too steep.
Over three seasons in Buffalo, Bledsoe has started every game and thrown 55 touchdown passes to 43 interceptions.
The only season Bledsoe hasn't been the starter in his career is 2001. He suffered a serious chest injury in the second game of the season and Tom Brady hasn't looked back, leading the New England Patriots to three Super Bowl victories in four years.
After 12 years in the league it might be time for Bledsoe to accept a backup role for less money. Giving him the option to challenge Grossman and Chad Hutchinson in training camp could entice him to come to Chicago.
Bledsoe isn't the only veteran that will be available when free agency starts on March 2nd and the Bears aren't going to be the only team exploring their options.
Jeff Garcia has been released within the last week, while Kurt Warner is looking to get out of New York. However, either would come with baggage and might not accept playing second fiddle. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Detroit Lions, Atlanta Falcons, Cleveland Browns, Arizona Cardinals, and San Francisco 49ers will all be looking to add a veteran starter or backup to the mix.
