The Chicago Bears made their first major acquisition of the offseason and fans are not happy with it.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Bears are signing former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Andy Dalton to a one-year, $10 million deal. Dalton can earn an additional $3 million in incentives.

After being linked to countless quarterbacks on the market, most notably Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, it’s Dalton who winds up as the next potential starter for the Bears.

The veteran quarterback spent nine seasons as the Cincinnati Bengals starter before coming to the Dallas Cowboys to be the backup to Dak Prescott. Dalton found himself starting most of the games for Dallas after Prescott injured his ankle in October, missing the rest of the season. He threw for 2,170 yards with 14 touchdowns and eights interceptions.

The news rocked social media late Tuesday afternoon as fans showed their displeasure for the signing, while rivals couldn’t help but laugh.
