The Bears are locked in with Jay Cutler as their franchise quarterback, but Chicago's general manager said Thursday that the team wouldn't be opposed to drafting a rookie signal-caller if backup Josh McCown signs with another team.

"We're open to drafting any position that would help us," Emery told Around The League, noting that the Bears have a lot to accomplish with the "pool of money available" to them.

Re-signing McCown is something the team would like to get done this offseason, but the seven-year, $126.7 million deal they handed Cutler leaves a limited amounted of greenbacks at the position.
