The Chicago Bears have signed quarterback Mark Sanchez, who is expected to back up Mike Glennon next season.

The Bears announced the one-year contract Friday. Chicago is coming off a season in which it went 3-13 and finished last in the NFC North.

Sanchez’s deal could be worth $2 million with incentives with $1 million guaranteed, according to contract details obtained by USA TODAY Sports’ Tom Pelissero.

Chicago cut quarterback Jay Cutler this month after eight seasons and the next day signed Glennon of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a three-year deal.
