CHICAGO (AP) -- The Chicago Bears and holdout rookie quarterback Cade McNown resumed contract talks Sunday, with the two sides exchanging proposals.

McNown and his agent, Tom Condon, will fly to Chicago Monday to meet with Bears negotiator Jim Miller after the two sides, the Bears said in a news release.

"The status of the negotiations has not changed, we'll just continue our discussions in person," Miller said.

There are concerns that unless the former UCLA star gets to training camp soon, he will be too far behind in learning the Bears' new offensive system to be able to start the season opener.

McNown, the 12th pick overall, was given the No. 1 QB job when the team released Erik Kramer just before training camp opened 10 days ago.
