The Bears worked out free agent QBs Stephen McGee and Josh Johnson Tuesday.
The Bears are likely just updating their emergency list, but it could also be a sign Jay Cutler's (neck) Week 15 status isn't assured. This is just McGee's second known workout since he was waived by the Cowboys at final cuts.

Free agent QB Stephen McGee worked out for the Bucs.
The Bucs are only two deep at quarterback, but it appears they were just doing their due diligence on the former Cowboy. McGee was terrible in the preseason and has no practice squad eligibility. Perhaps he'll resurface as a No. 2 or 3 quarterback during the year with a team racked by injuries.

Josh Ellis of Dallascowboys.com says "there doesn't appear to be much of an upside" to keeping QB Stephen McGee on the roster this season.
Dallas showed its lack of confidence in McGee when they signed Kyle Orton to back up Tony Romo. Additionally, Rudy Carpenter was claimed off waivers and may have an edge on McGee for the No. 3 job because he's eligible for the practice squad. Ellis considers McGee a candidate for trade or release.

Cowboys third-string QB Stephen McGee had an "inconsistent" week of mandatory minicamp while seeing an increase in reps.
McGee got more action as Kyle Orton nursed a hamstring injury. He reportedly struggled particularly in red-zone situation and showed poor touch on his passes. In limited game action, McGee has not appeared to be a natural thrower of the football. His roster spot could be in danger in training camp.

The Dallas Morning News believes QB Stephen McGee's development has been "stunted."
It was obvious that the Cowboys had lost faith in McGee when they tried to claim Kyle Orton off waivers in October and subsequently signed the veteran to a high-end backup contract in March. McGee and Rudy Carpenter will reprise their 2009 camp battle for the No. 3 QB gig this summer.
