Bears among favorites to land franchise QB via trade originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago

Could the Bears finally find their franchise quarterback heading into the 2021 season? According to PointsBet Colorado, the Bears have a decent chance of landing Deshaun Watson this offseason.

Watson is still under contract with the Houston Texans, so they remain the front runners to retain Watson with -125 odds. But rumors that he was unhappy with the organization caused a hullabaloo on Twitter last week. When Bears fans caught wind of the rumor and resurfaced old Watson tweets saying he liked Chicago weather, Watson played along by following a couple of Chicago meteorologists on Twitter.

Currently, the Bears carry +550 odds to trade for Watson— the fifth-shortest in the league. Ahead of the Bears are the Miami Dolphins (+300), New England Patriots (+400) and New York Jets (+450).

This NFL Futures bet is only available on PointsBet’s Colorado site. In Illinois, the only NFL Futures available are Super Bowl winner and No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 draft.

Watson finished the 2020 season with the most passing yards in the league at 4,823. In addition, he completed over 70% of his passes, and threw 33 touchdown passes and seven interceptions.
