Ex-Bears QB Enderle signs with Jaguars
Former Chicago Bears quarterback Nathan Enderle, released last week after the team's final minicamp session, has signed with Jacksonville, the Jaguars announced Thursday.
The 6-foot-4 Enderle, selected by the Bears in the fifth round of the 2011 draft after being scouted by then-offensive coordinator Mike Martz, spent his rookie season on the team's active roster but never appeared in a game.
Enderle's exit gives Matt Blanchard, an undrafted rookie free agent from Wisconsin-Whitewater, an opportunity to be the Bears' fourth quarterback in training camp. Blanchard will not challenge veteran Josh McCown for the No. 3 job behind Jay Cutler and Jason Campbell, but a strong showing could lead the Bears to consider a role for him on the eight-man practice squad.
