CHICAGO — Looking to potentially add some quarterback depth behind Nick Foles and Mitchell Trubisky, who are slated to compete for the starting job, the Chicago Bears will try out an undrafted rookie next week. Former North Texas quarterback Mason Fine will reportedly fly to Chicago this weekend and, following a precautionary quarantine enforced by COVID-19 protocol, will have his audition on Wednesday.

Fine was not drafted after finishing the 2019 season as the all-time leader in passing yards and passing touchdowns in Mean Green history. Fine's biggest impediment is his stature, as the 5-foot-9-inch QB is definitely undersized for his position. However, his speed and surprisingly strong arm are impressive enough to warrant a shot at competing in the NFL, and the Bears are going to provide Fine with that opportunity.
