The Chicago Bears are a franchise desperate for solid quarterback play, which is why they’ve been mentioned with every quarterback rumored to be or on the trade market.

While Matthew Stafford and Carson Wentz have since been dealt to other teams, the Bears’ options at quarterback are running low — outside of trading up and drafting a top-tier prospect in this year’s NFL draft.

Following news that Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson would consider a trade to Chicago, Bears running back Tarik Cohen took to Twitter to do some recruiting of Wilson and, shortly after, Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson.

While Chicago isn’t the most attractive destination, especially given Ryan Pace and Matt Nagy’s uncertain futures beyond 2021, Wilson or Watson would already be the team’s best quarterback in franchise history if they came to the Bears.

So it’s really not a surprise to see Cohen joining teammate Cordarrelle Patterson in recruiting top quarterback talent to Chicago.

While the Bears have issues that extend beyond quarterback, having someone like Wilson or Watson would do wonders for Chicago’s stumbling offense. Especially with some young playmakers in running back David Montgomery, receiver Darnell Mooney, and tight end Cole Kmet.
