(CBS) Josh McCown might not be the future for the Bears, but he’s certainly got the team thinking of options outside of Jay Cutler.

According to a report from the National Football Post’s Jason Cole, the Bears are prepared to let Cutler walk if the quarterback won’t take a club friendly deal.

“(The Bears) believe in (coach Marc) Trestman after what they’ve seen from (backup quarterback Josh) McCown,” a source told Cole. “Between his system and the two big receivers (Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery), you have a system where a quarterback can flourish. I don’t know if McCown is going to be the starter (next season), but I think the team would be fine letting Cutler test the market and then go draft someone if he left.”
