The Bears would love to make a splash this offseason by trading for a franchise quarterback like Deshaun Watson or Russell Wilson. But if they can’t pull that off, the fallback option may be sticking with the quarterback they have: Nick Foles. Foles remains under contract to the Bears at an affordable salary cap number [more]
The chance Deshaun Watson could be on the trade market became possibly a tiny closer to reality when someone very familiar with the situation changed his view on the topic. Longtime Houston football reporter John McClain had said the Texans had no intention of trading Watson, but has called now for them to consider it after Watson actually asked for a trade and then reiterated it with the added threaten he could miss camp and games.
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson would be more than willing to make a move to the Chicago Bears, ESPN's Adam Schefter said on Saturday. "If the Bears struck a deal with the Seahawks, Russell Wilson would happily accept his walking papers to the Windy City," Schefter said on ESPN Chicago's Waddle & Silvy show (h/t Michael Allardyce of NBC Sports Chicago). Wilson has previously stated his desire to stay in Seattle, per comments his agent, Mark Rodgers, made to Schefter.
