SHARE Bears OC Adam Gase thinks Jimmy Clausen is ‘perfect’ fit for offense

With a new regime in place, the Bears are set for a new look in 2015. New head coach John Fox brought along his offensive coordinator Adam Gase to help the Bears offense, which ranked 21st in the NFL last season.

ESPN NFL Insider Matt Williamson said the Bears will stick with quarterback Jay Cutler due to his contract forces them to start him, but Gase has confidents in backup Jimmy Clausen.

Gase thinks Clausen fits the mold of the new offense better than Cutler, who’s set to make $16.5 million this season.

I feel like from what we saw on tape last year — and I know it was limited, I know what we saw on tape was limited — but he’s really grown as a player, Gase said in May. And what we’re trying to put together right now, he was a great fit for that room. He and Jay have a great relationship. I felt like he’d be perfect for what we were trying to do offensively.

Clausen, who threw 23-of-39 for 181 yards, two touchdowns and one interception last season, is the No. 2 right now and will get a shot to start if anything happens to Cutler.
