Bears checking out two former Raiders, one former Raider's brother

Ezra Shaw

The Chicago Bears will be working out former Raiders quarterbacks JaMarcus Russell and Trent Edwards along with Jordan Palmer.

The Bears are looking into signing a backup quarterback and they have dug into Raiders castoffs in order to find him. They are working out Former Raiders' QB's JaMarcus Russell and Trent Edwards as well as Jordan Palmer -- brother of former Raiders QB Carson Palmer.

The headliner in this group is of course, super bust JaMarcus Russell. The former number one overall pick by the Raiders played three forgetful seasons in the NFL from 2007-09 and has been out of the league ever since. He has been on the comeback trail and is reportedly down to 265 pounds. He had ballooned up to well over 300 pounds and hasn't been this light since he came out of college back in 2007.

Trent Edwards spent training camp and preseason with the Raiders in 2011 but Hue Jackson went with Kyle Boller of whom he coached in Baltimore two seasons before. Edwards spent last season with the Eagles while Boller retired after that season at just 29 years of age.

Jordan Palmer was teammates with his brother Carson in Cincinnati right up until the Bengals traded Carson to the Raiders for a first and second round pick. And once Carson was gone, the Bengals cut Jordan as well.
