This offseason, there is no more important facet for the Chicago Bears than the quarterback position.
That’s the number one priority and it must get fixed — everybody knows that. At this stage, plenty of folks have their opinions.
We have seen national reporters and insiders say different, varying things in regards to what the Bears will do. Some have said the Bears cannot afford to go after a big splash. Others say it simply won’t happen.
We have heard that the Bears may end up with an Alex Smith, along with Nick Foles and maybe a Day 2 rookie. Does that sound like it’s going to save the job of Ryan Pace? Absolutely not. Yet, there are sources connected to the team who believe this is the most likely outcome.
But, then, there are even more people who are not only saying that it’s possible, but that the Bears are ready to go after two of the biggest names in the NFL.
The first report states the Chicago Bears are prepared to go all-in on a quarterback
CBS Sports insider Jason La Canfora published a piece on Wednesday morning regarding the Bears and their desperation at the quarterback position. La Canfora noted that Deshaun Watson, along with Russell Wilson, are the two main possible targets for Chicago.
He stated that the Bears were prepared to toss the whole farm at both teams in an attempt to land either quarterback:
“Well, sources said they are prepared to throw a boatload of picks at the Texans — for Deshaun Watson — and Seahawks — for Russell Wilson — in an attempt to upgrade at the most important position in all of professional sports.”
That was just the first report of the day, and there were many dominos to fall after La Canfora’s intriguing words.
