This offseason there’s been a new Chicago Bears quarterback rumor almost every week. From Deshaun Watson to Matthew Stafford to Derek Carr to Carson Wentz to Sam Darnold, it’s been one heck of a ride for fans along the way. But one quarterback that has been continuously linked to the Bears over the last couple of weeks is Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson — and it doesn’t appear to be losing steam anytime soon.
Despite all the rumors of interest and being aggressive, going after quarterbacks who either aren't available or aren't specifically available to teams without early draft picks will do the Bears little good. King has decided, just like BearDigest did, that the Bears are in a situation in the draft and in free agency where they cannot get one of the hot-ticket items—no Russell Wilson, no Deshaun Watson, no Derek Carr and probably none of the top five draft picks at quarterback in the draft.
