Bears searching for Cutler's backup at QB

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) -- The Chicago Bears know who their starting quarterback is. The question remains: Who'll be Jay Cutler's backup?
With untested veterans Caleb Hanie and Brett Basanez on the roster, the Bears got a good look at sixth-round draft pick Dan LeFevour from Central Michigan during rookie minicamp this weekend. Now they'll need to decide whether these players can be adequate or if a veteran needs to be signed.
Hanie has been with the team for two seasons, but has thrown only seven NFL passes. Offensive coordinator Mike Martz said he thinks Hanie will be a good player.
If the Bears decide the inexperience factor is too great, former Rams quarterback Marc Bulger is still a free agent and ran Martz's offense in St. Louis.
