The Russell Wilson to the Chicago Bears hype is rolling full steam ahead. This after it was revealed that the Pro-Bowl quarterback would consider a trade to four teams, including the Bears.

While Wilson hasn’t requested a trade from the Seattle Seahawks, he’s reportedly not happy with a lack of protection on the offensive line. So there are definitely tensions between both sides. Whether that results in a trade remains to be seen.

But even if Wilson isn’t yet on the trade block, general manager Ryan Pace should be knocking down the Seahawks’ door for an opportunity to bring a star quarterback to Chicago — especially considering it would save his own job beyond 2021.

Pro Football Focus proposed a hypothetical trade from the Bears, which would include a couple of defensive studs and a pair of first-round picks.

The Bears would receive Wilson for the following:

  • OLB Khalil Mack

  • CB Jaylon Johnson

  • 2021 first-round pick

  • 2022 first-round pick

It’s difficult to say that there’s a player not on the table when it comes to trading for a star quarterback — especially for a franchise that has been historically bad at the quarterback position. Even a stud like Mack.

While Chicago appears to be the least attractive of the four options — alongside the Dallas Cowboys, New Orleans Saints, and Las Vegas Raiders — Wilson reportedly would like an opportunity to turn around the Bears’ franchise.

Still, if Chicago offers the most, the Seahawks already have the green light from Wilson to deal him to the Bears. It might also help that the Saints might be interested in requiring Teddy Bridgewater and the Cowboys working on keeping Dak Prescott in Dallas.

But we’re getting ahead of ourselves here. Seattle insists that they have no plans to trade Wilson this offseason, and we’ll see if they stick to that plan.
