Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson will not be headed to the Windy City – at least not this season.

Wilson and his camp had named four potential trade partners of interest a couple of weeks ago, should Seattle be amenable to dealing its franchise quarterback. One of those teams was the Chicago Bears, who are now no longer in need of a signal-caller.

The Bears did make a solid push for Wilson though, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

“Chicago made ‘a very aggressive pursuit’ of Seahawks QB Russell Wilson, per sources, and the Bears were told that Seattle is not trading him at this time,” Schefter tweeted Tuesday. “The Bears were one of four teams Wilson’s agent named as a place of interest. Now Chicago has an agreement with Andy Dalton.”

Dalton is reportedly signing a one-year deal worth $10 million deal, with the chance to earn another $3 million in incentives.
