Andy Dalton is a three-time Pro Bowl selection, having spent most of his career with the Cincinati Bengals and last year with the Dallas Cowboys. With 23 fourth quarter comebacks and 27 game-winning drives in his NFL career, the dude knows how to win.
Quarterback Andy Dalton will now reportedly be playing with the Chicago Bears.
The quarterback who played at Texas Christian University is now back in the Midwest as Dalton went from TCU to Ohio back to Texas and now to Illinois.
According to Around the NFL’s Nick Shook, “Dalton is signing a one-year, $10 million deal with the Bears, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported”.
The Bears quarterback room now has Dalton and Super Bowl champion Nick Foles.
It looks like the Bears will run with Dalton and Foles as their quarterbacks depending on what they do in free agency and the draft as Mitch Trubisky is now a free agent per Yahoo! Sports.
What’s interesting about the Bears’ quarterback situation and looking to add another quarterback to the roster is that they reportedly were also going after Russell Wilson.
According to Around the NFL’s Kevin Patra: “The Bears took a swing at acquiring star quarterback Russell Wilson in a would-be blockbuster trade with the Seattle Seahawks. Chicago came up empty. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported…on Good Morning Football that Bears GM Ryan Pace and Seahawks GM John Schneider met in Fargo, North Dakota, presumably after attending Trey Lance’s pro day, and discussed a potential swap…”
“The Bears certainly made a big offer — multiple first-round picks,” Rapoport said per Patra on NFL.com. “The Seahawks slept on it. They discussed it…they decided, specifically coach Pete Carroll…does not want to rebuild, decided we are not trading Russell Wilson to the Bears.”
So, that means it looks like Wilson is staying put with Seattle and Dalton has found a new home team in “Da Bears”.
