Bears Place $1.2 Mil Tender on QB Caleb Hanie

The Bears have placed a tender, albeit a low tender, on backup QB Caleb Hanie.

The Bears have placed a low tender of $1.2 million on restricted free agent Caleb Hanie, according to a league source.

The Bears do have the right for first refusal if another team were to sign Hanie to an offer sheet. But if the Bears were to decline to match, they would receive no compensation in return, as Hanie entered the league in 2008 as an undrafted free agent out of Colorado State. Hanie is restricted because he has just three years of service.

A second-rounder tender, valued at around $2 million, could have been placed on Hanie. But the Bears obviously felt comfortable about their chances of keeping Hanie regardless.
