The Chicago Bears already appear set at the quarterback position, with Josh McCown and Matt Blanchard backing up starter Jay Cutler, but a little due diligence doesn't hurt one bit. So news of JaMarcus Russell coming in for a tryout isn't really news at all, unless your JarMarcus Russell. Russell has been inching toward a comeback with his much publicized coverage of his workouts and weight loss, but the truth is, no one really is interested in him, which is why he's still available so far after the start of free agency. And he's not the only QB coming to town. Former Eagles QB Trent Edwards Jaguars QB Jordan Palmer will also have their tires kicked as well, reports Dan Pompei of the Chicago Tribune. Pompei writes: ' [Russell] had one of the strongest arms in the league, but Russell developed a reputation as a player who did not work hard or stay in shape.  He was arrested on drug charges.  In three seasons, he had a 65.2 passer rating. Edwards was a third round pick of the Bills in 2007 and has started 33 NFL games.  After being beaten out by Ryan Fitzpatrick, he spent time with the Jaguars, Raiders and Eagles.  His career passer rating is 75.5. Palmer is best known as the younger brother of Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer.  Jordan Palmer was a sixth round pick of the Redskins but didn’t stick.  Instead, he spent three seasons in Cincinnati as a backup to his brother.  He spent some time with the Jaguars in 2012.
