the Bears trade:

    The Chicago Bears returned to practice Wednesday at Halas Hall to prepare for Saturday’s preseason game against the Kansas City Chiefs at Soldier Field. Here are three things we learned afterward from players. 1. The Bears removed linebacker Roquan Smith from the physically unable to perform list. A day after Smith requested a trade from the Bears because of stalled contract negotiations, the team announced it took him off the PUP list, where he had resided since the first day of training camp. His placement on the list meant he wouldn’t be fined for not participating in practices as he waits for a new contract from the Bears. Smith has staged a “hold-in,” which allows him to attend meetings and train at Halas Hall while not practicing. He has been at most practices but was not spotted Wednesday. It’s unclear whether the Bears removed him in case of a trade or so they could fine him for sitting out after he released a bold statement to NFL Network on Tuesday saying the Bears didn’t value him and “refused to negotiate...
    The Chicago Bears open the preseason in three days against the Kansas City Chiefs at Soldier Field. Linebacker Roquan Smith won’t be in uniform as he continues his hold-in — now with a trade request. Smith’s situation, naturally, is the top question in Brad Biggs’ weekly Bears mailbag. How will the Roquan Smith situation be resolved? — Stan K., Cedarburg, Wis. My crystal ball is in the shop getting a tune-up for the regular season, so I can’t use it to answer this question. I will say that as often as a trade request results in an actual trade, there are just as many instances — probably more — when a trade request is simply a tactic in a protracted negotiation. If I had to venture a guess, I think the Bears will wind up reaching an extension agreement with Smith. Trading Smith right now would be especially difficult. In a more typical situation in which a player requests a trade, the team might grant the player and his agent permission to seek one. That would involve the agent calling...

But then comes the final question, which may take more than 30 seconds to answer. Who will trade for Roquan Smith, and how much are they willing to give up? A few days ago, it seemed unlikely that Chicago would do this after Smith posed in the new orange helmet the team would be wearing this season, but it looks like the financial aspect is not working out.Chicago Bears linebacker Roquan Smith requested a tradeSo, what can you get realistically in a deal for Smith that would...
    The Chicago Bears have made Roquan Smith off-limits to media since training camp opened last month. The inside linebacker has gotten his word out, however, sending a message to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport indicating he has requested a trade. Smith has been present for training camp but has staged a “hold-in,” meaning he is present but not participating in hopes of receiving a new contract. Smith’s long statement indicates that he has reached a boiling point in trying to negotiate a contract without an agent. This, no doubt, escalates the challenge for first-year general manager Ryan Poles. “I wanted to be a Bear for my entire career, help this team bring a Super Bowl back to our city,” Smith’s statement read. “However, they have left me no choice than to request a trade that allows me to play for an organization that truly values what I bring to the table.” The Bears placed Smith on the physically unable to perform list at the outset of camp, a peculiar move and one that came without an explanation for what injury he...
    Tevin Jenkins’ mysterious absence from Chicago Bears training camp practices reached the one-week mark Wednesday with the second-year offensive tackle missing his sixth consecutive practice. The Bears continue to say Jenkins is dealing with an injury without offering even a sliver of additional detail. And when Bears coach Matt Eberflus was pressed about whether Jenkins had been present at Halas Hall this week, he remained vague. “To work with the trainers, yeah,” Eberflus said Wednesday. “He’s in the building. Sure.” Still, there has been no indication that Jenkins has been an active participant in meetings. He has not been on the sidelines during practices to take mental reps either. And with NFL Network reporting earlier this week that the Bears have engaged in trade talks regarding Jenkins, there’s more than a little smoke swirling to indicate he quickly is fading from the team’s plans — both short and long term. So what now? Eberflus was asked directly when Jenkins’ team-designated “day-to-day” status might change. “When it does,” he responded. As for the impact of Jenkins missing so much practice time...

    Getty Will the Chicago Bears trade top pass rusher Robert Quinn? One team keeps popping up as an option to trade for Chicago Bears Pro Bowl pass rusher Robert Quinn: the Kansas City Chiefs. USA Today and The Draft Network both named the Chiefs a top contender to add Quinn in June, and analyst Matt Verderame noted on July 6 via Twitter that Quinn “makes a ton of sense for Kansas City.” Still believe Quinn makes a ton of sense for Kansas City. The Chiefs have 12 picks next year, the Bears' GM just came over from KC, and Quinn would fill the biggest need on the team. And, the Chiefs wouldn't inherit any dead cap, so it's basically an annual team option. https://t.co/lLm5mtPge8 — Matt Verderame (@MattVerderame) July 6, 2022 Rumors Quinn wants out of Chicago have been flying like frisbees in a crowded park since the veteran elected not to show up for the team’s mandatory veteran minicamp, which took place from June 14-16. Quinn may still wind up playing for Chicago because, frankly, his trade...
    The NFL draft begins Thursday night and, boy, do the Chicago Bears have a rebuilding job ahead of them. But without any first-round picks and only six selections to work with, new general manager Ryan Poles will have his work cut out for him. As the draft draws near, our team of Bears writers weighs in on four timely topics. 1. The idea of Ryan Poles trading up to get the Bears into the first round is __________ . Brad Biggs: A non-starter. The Bears need volume. They’ve got needs across the board on both sides of the ball, so bundling multiple picks to move into the first round worth much of a discussion. They’re much better off using both of their second-round picks or even sliding down a little and adding more selections. Of course, that would require finding the right trade partner. Colleen Kane: Probably not the best option. We don’t know Poles’ draft tendencies yet, so a trade up is certainly possible. But listening to some of his comments over the last couple of months, it would...
    The NFL’s owners meetings are continuing this week in South Florida, with owners, head coaches and executives gathered to discuss league business. For the Chicago Bears, it’s also another step in their latest reboot effort as new general manager Ryan Poles and coach Matt Eberflus push to steer the franchise in a winning direction. Poles spoke with Bears reporters Monday afternoon. It was his first question-and-answer session since the scouting combine, and he had a lot to address after a flurry of moves in free agency this month. While the Bears’ attempt to make a big splash with the signing of defensive lineman Larry Ogunjobi ultimately came up empty, Poles has remained active in adding pieces to the roster while retaining a level of patience and discipline that he hopes will set the team up for a brighter future. Here are three things we learned from the new GM on Monday. 1. Poles remains confident in his decision to trade Khalil Mack to the Los Angeles Chargers. In his first public comments about the trade, Poles acknowledged the difficulty in...
    Mandatory Credit: Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY Sports After trading Khalil Mack to the Chargers, the Chicago Bears should now look to trade these three players. After going all-in to acquire him in 2018, the Chicago Bears will send Khalil Mack to the Los Angeles Chargers for two draft picks when the deal can be made official next week. New general manager Ryan Poles took on a lot dead money for 2022, but opened up cash this year and big-time cap space moving forward. It’s a stretch to say the Bears are now in full-on rebuild mode, as it feels more like a reset/roster clean-up with eyes on the future. As it is right now, there are very few players who look like promising long-term parts of the core in Chicago. Veterans who were obviously not brought in by the new regime, or don’t look like part of the future even just looking beyond 2022, could be traded rather than cut for nothing now or down the road. After trading Mack back to the AFC West, the Bears should be looking to...
    Chicago might never forget the force of that initial adrenaline surge, the surprise news that broke in the early hours of a September Saturday in 2018. Khalil Mack was coming to Halas Hall, joining the Bears defense to ignite an on-the-rise unit that had eyes on becoming elite. General manager Ryan Pace had pulled off a blockbuster trade with the Oakland Raiders, dealing away two first-round picks but reeling in a big fish at a pivotal moment for the franchise. The jolt was powerful and resonated for months. Remember the rush from the season opener, just a week after the trade, when Mack was rag-dolling Packers quarterback DeShone Kizer and ripping the football from his arms? Remember a short time later when he intercepted a Kizer pass and rolled 27 yards into the south end zone at Lambeau Field to continue his comic-book Bears debut? Remember two weeks later when Mack’s fourth-quarter strip-sack of Sam Bradford sealed a 16-14 road win over the Arizona Cardinals and his teammates were already likening his skill set and impact to LeBron James’? “He’s...
    The Chicago Bears went all-in on pursuing a Super Bowl championship when they traded for Khalil Mack four years ago. Now, in new general manager Ryan Poles’ first big move, they are shipping out the edge rusher in the hopes of laying a foundation for the future. The Bears have agreed to trade Mack, a six-time Pro Bowl selection, to the Los Angeles Chargers in exchange for a second-round draft pick this year and a sixth-rounder in 2023. The deal is contingent on Mack, who underwent left foot surgery after he was placed in injured reserve last season, passing a physical. Poles has mentioned multiple times that the Bears are short on draft picks as they pay off the remainder of the trade with the New York Giants to move up and draft quarterback Justin Fields last year. He called it the “hand we were dealt” last week at the scouting combine in Indianapolis, where multiple sources hinted the Bears could be looking to move one of the few assets on the roster that could bring a quality return. Adding...

    10 thoughts as the Chicago Bears get going with a new regime following four days at the NFL scouting combine. 1. Ryan Poles called having only five picks in the upcoming draft — and without selections in the first and fourth rounds — the ‘hand we were dealt.’ At the same time, he said the Bears will be “open minded” about ways to add more draft picks , creating two possibilities. The simplest would be to trade down once or twice during the draft to acquire more capital. It’s unknown how appealing that prospect would be for Poles, whose first pick isn’t until No. 39 overall in Round 2. Unless the Bears see a big cluster of players in that range with similar grades, it might not be prudent and it’s unlikely there would be a big return. Another avenue — and a more impactful way to acquire picks — would be to trade player(s) currently under contract. The name some folks in town are wondering about is Khalil Mack, the 31-year-old edge rusher who had six sacks in seven...
    There were few positives to take away from the Chicago Bears’ 38-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 7, and that’s reflected in this week’s Bears mailbag. Brad Biggs takes a swing at questions about Ryan Pace’s and Matt Nagy’s job security, Justin Fields’ body language — and the rarely seen white-on-white uniform combination. Will the Bears be sellers at the trade deadline? — @rickcwik16 The 3 p.m. Tuesday trade deadline is quickly approaching, and over the last five years or so we have seen an uptick in deals. But the NFL remains far behind the other major sports in terms of in-season player movement. It would be great if the Bears could add draft capital for 2022. Currently, they are without their first- and fourth-round picks as part of the trade with the New York Giants to draft quarterback Justin Fields. They are also without their seventh-round pick, which they packaged with wide receiver Anthony Miller in a trade with the Houston Texans. That deal netted them the Texans’ fifth-round pick, so the Bears...

    The Chicago Bears want to unload Nick Foles, but even the Philadelphia Eagles wouldn’t take him. Last offseason, the Chicago Bears did the Jacksonville Jaguars a favor by trading for Nick Foles a year into a bloated contract. They’d like to find someone to do them the same favor this offseason. But according to NFL insider Adam Caplan, the Bears tried to trade Foles to the Philadelphia Eagles and other teams with no success. With their signing of Andy Dalton and their trade up to get Justin Fields in the draft, Foles has become an expensive No. 3 quarterback for the Bears. A contract restructuring made his money less penal than it would have been under his original deal with Jacksonville, but Foles is still due $9 million in total guaranteed money over the next two years. There is some intangible value Foles can bring to a quarterback room, including Chicago’s, but that only goes so far. The #Bears now have Justin Fields as their future starter with Andy Dalton as QB1 until Fields is ready. What about Nick...

More wealthy investors seem to be asking themselves this question — and about more than just the pandemic's biggest winners, and answering it by selling stocks and going to cash. The percentage of investors with $1 million or more in brokerage account they self-manage that sold out of market positions and went to cash in the second quarter more than doubled, from 7% to 16%, according to a new survey of wealthy investors from Morgan Stanley's E-Trade Financial shared with CNBC. Overall bullishness declined as well, with millionaire investors who say they are now bearish increasing by 6 percentage points, from 36% to 42%.

    If the Chicago Bears want to significantly move up in the 2021 NFL Draft for a quarterback, it’s going to be costly, but perhaps needy. Would the Chicago Bears be willing to take a quarterback with their first pick in the NFL Draft? They better at this point to save GM Ryan Pace and head coach Matt Nagy’s jobs. Chicago parted ways with Mitch Trubisky after four years of up and down play. Despite the team adding Andy Dalton as the next “guy”, this is more of a bridge option than full-time starter. And if the Bears are sold that that Dalton can be the leader who takes them to the Super Bowl, they’ve lost before the season has begun. To this point, the Bears need a slam dunk move. That likely means moving up to select one of the top five quarterbacks left on the board.

    Last week’s 49ers/Dolphins/Eagles trades should set off a flurry of activity as the Bears, Patriots and Washington scramble to draft a quarterback. In this week’s edition of Inside the Draft: It’s hard to picture a scenario where Washington climbs from the 19th overall pick into top five quarterback territory, so a trade now seems unlikely. But don’t despair, Team With No Name fans: Ryan Fitzpatrick’s twinkly-eyed postgame press conference will make his three-turnover Sunday afternoons go down like the finest cabernet sauvignon from the oaken wine cellar of Dan Snyder’s yacht. Chicago Bears At first, the Bears seem less likely to trade up from the 20th selection than Washington is from the 19th. The Bears, after all, are cap-strapped and need all of their future draft picks to patch the leaks springing up all over their roster. But never underestimate the power of a flailing Ryan Pace to do something incomprehensibly stupid. Reeling from the Andy Dalton backlash, with upper management tapping its foot impatiently and Matt Nagy begging Pace not to do him dirty with Dalton, the Bears general...
    The Bears’ offer for Russell Wilson has been revealed, and the Seahawks were probably right to have said no. Russell Wilson has not asked the Seattle Seahawks to trade him, though his agent was quick to offer a hypothetical list of teams that would be desirable to go to. That list has one team left who might be open to the move. The Chicago Bears took note of being on Wilson’s list, and apparently made a significant offer before being rejected and left to pivot to Andy Dalton. The offers Seattle might entertain for Wilson are surely not far off from the kind of offers it would take for the Houston Texans to move Deshaun Watson. Franchise quarterbacks cost a premium, after all. On his show Wednesday morning, Dan Patrick revealed the Bears’ offer for Wilson.

    Headlines in the NFL have recently been dominated by speculation surrounding quarterback trades. Quarterbacks Matthew Stafford, Jared Goff, Carson Wentz, and Ryan Fitzpatrick have all joined new teams this offseason. But arguably the biggest fish still up for grabs is Russell Wilson.  The Seattle Seahawks QB hasn’t been a happy customer of late. Publicly stating his resentment regarding the protection he receives from his O-line, Wilson is rumored to be looking for a trade.  Even his own agent stated that while the QB hasn’t officially put in a trade request yet, there are a couple of teams he’d be willing to join if the situation is right.  Among them were the Chicago Bears. The Bears have been in search of a franchise QB for what seems like an eternity. Shuffling from one quarterback to the other, the QB position is clearly the team’s kryptonite.  A trade for Russell Wilson no longer a distinct possibility The Bears experimented with two quarterbacks last season. 2021 NVP Mitchell Trubisky and former Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles. Both failed to garner the desired results. ...
    From “Go ‘Hawks” to “No ‘Hawks.” Wilson’s famed line he uses when closing interviews may be changing in the coming months, with trade rumors surrounding the Seahawks passer since the turn of February. What initially started as some embers of public dissatisfaction has seemingly grown to full-fledged wild fire, with Seattle’s front office currently fielding calls for the 32-year-old.  Wilson was playing to an MVP level in the first half of 2020 before coming back down to Earth in the second half of the season. The Seahawks offense went from high-flying to relatively grounded, leading to the firing of offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer; Wilson was displeased with the move, reportedly. While a trade this offseason still might not be all that likely given Wilson’s contract, that hasn’t stopped teams from calling and asking about his availability, with the Bears reportedly making Wilson their No. 1 priority this offseason. To make matters more interesting, the Bears are one of the teams Wilson would give the OK on a trade to. Wilson and the Seahawks have been on the forefront of...

    The Chicago Bears are running out of patience with the Philadelphia Eagles on a possible trade for quarterback Carson Wentz.The clock is ticking on if the Philadelphia Eagles are going to trade quarterback Carson Wentz or not. The Chicago Bears clearly want him, but are growing frustrated with how much the Eagles are overvaluing their former franchise quarterback. This is why a trade has not happened yet. According to Mike Kaye of NJ.com, the Eagles do not want to give up Wentz for anything less than a Matthew Stafford haul. The trade package the Detroit Lions received for Stafford was so large because of Jared Goff’s albatross contract coming the other way. The other team seriously vying for Wentz is the Indianapolis Colts, but they want another player to come with Wentz in a trade. The Bears do not need to bid against themselves to land Carson WentzThe reason the Bears and Colts are the two likeliest suitors for Wentz are that those two organizations employ former Eagles offensive coaches. Colts head coach Frank Reich was Wentz’s offensive coordinator in Philadelphia in 2017. Bears...
    The Carson Wentz trade rumors went from the hot stove to the back burner. Carson Wentz could be on the move in the coming days. All reports indicate that the Philadelphia Eagles are willing to trade Wentz this offseason for the right price. The Eagles are hoping for a first-round pick and additional assets for the former No. 2 pick who flashed as an MVP candidate in 2017. The Bears may be the most willing to meet that asking price considering general manager Ryan Pace and head coach Matt Nagy face a win-or-be-fired season ahead. If somehow they get the offer they’re looking for, expect this deal to be done. For now, it’s a waiting game with all involved. Next: Bears QB options to consider beyond Carson Wentz
    The Chicago Bears need to consider other options before going through with a trade for Carson Wentz. The NFL quarterback trade market is running wild in 2021 and the Chicago Bears are reportedly trying to jump in and make a splash. Wentz is fresh off the worst season of his NFL career and threw 15 interceptions in 12 games. The Bears already have the quarterback who won the Eagles a Super Bowl and may be trapped thinking about what Wentz’s potential was back in 2016 as opposed to what he has shown on the field as of late. Next: A Carson Wentz trade complicates all other QB trades Pace made a mistake back in 2017. If he wants to keep his job he needs to avoid making an even bigger mistake in 2021.
    The Chicago Bears are close to a trade deal with the Eagles for quarterback Carson Wentz, according to a report. The Bears are on the verge of completing a trade for Carson Wentz. That’s according to a report from Philadelphia radio and TV personality Natalie Egenolf, who says quarterback Nick Foles and Tarik Cohen could be packaged with a first-round draft pick to make it happen. Source is telling me Bears deal for Wentz is close. Foles is speculated to be included with another offensive player and a first rounder.

    Getty QB Matt Ryan of the Atlanta Falcons The Chicago Bears are going to be getting a new quarterback this offseason, whether it’s via trade, the draft or both. After finishing 8-8 for the second straight year, GM Ryan Pace admitted the team wasn’t getting enough out of the most important position in sports and he revealed “this whole offseason” would be about finding a quarterback. Naturally, that has left endless fans and analysts hypothesizing about what the Bears, who have never had a quarterback throw for more than 4,000 yards in a single season, will do at the position. They are contractually tied to veteran Nick Foles, who clearly showed he’s not the answer, and they have refused to commit to former second overall pick Mitch Trubisky at every turn, so there will likely be a new quarterback — or maybe two — in the mix for Chicago next season. When considering draft position as well as the positional needs of all 32 NFL teams, Anthony Treash of Pro Football Focus threw his hat into the ring...
    Next1 of 3Prev postUse your ← → (arrows) to browse   The Chicago Bears made the mistake of selecting Mitchell Trubisky over Deshaun Watson. Now, they can rectify it. The Houston Texans have a huge problem on their hands, and it involves quarterback Deshaun Watson. After the team hired Nick Caserio to become their next general manager on Tuesday night, Watson immediately responded “some things never change,” via Twitter. It was cryptic, but we received the reasoning behind the tweet. According to reports, Watson is “extremely unhappy” with the Texans over their hiring process. Watson told owner Cal McNair that he wanted to be involved in the general manager search, while asking him to consider his candidates for the role. Instead, the Texans hired Caserio without involving Watson, who found out about the hiring on Twitter! This past week, rumors have circulated that Watson could demand a trade off the team. Granted, this was before this latest bombshell report. Even though he just signed a four-year, $156 million contract extension, Watson carries a rather meager $21.6 million cap hit. That’s...
    The Jaguars didn’t win many games this season but losing to the Bears in Week 16 means Jacksonville has won the race to draft Trevor Lawrence.  Jacksonville never looked like a team tanking for the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL Draft, but it’s hard to argue with the Jaguars’ results. Falling to 1-14 after a Week 16 loss to the Chicago Bears puts the franchise in a position to net one of the best quarterback prospects in recent memory. Barring a massive trade that would rock the NFL, Trevor Lawrence will become the franchise quarterback the Jaguars desperately crave. That’s good news for everyone in Jacksonville not named Mike Glennon, Gardner Minshew, or Jake Luton. Those three quarterbacks will not become afterthoughts on the Jaguars’ 2021 roster if they even manage to make the team. Lawrence’s impact on the Jaguars will be especially impactful for the talented skill players the team has already amassed on offense. D.J. Chark has managed to put up good numbers for the Jaguars despite the team’s mediocre quarterback play. He, Keelan Cole, and...
    Is there anyway the Bears can make the jump into the top three conversation? Mitchell Trubisky is not the answer at quarterback for the Chicago Bears. The pick became Carson Wentz, but the plan to move up high enough to get the guy you want worked. That’s what the Bears could do. Chicago should look to swing a trade with either Atlanta, Miami, Philadelphia, or the Chargers, teams without big enough quarterback questions to justify taking one in the Top 10. Pulling off a trade would probably require pairing the pick with a top-tier player tailored to the receiving team’s specific area of need, but being bold isn’t about doing things the easy way. From there, the best move would be to entice New York or Jacksonville to move back with a package of picks. According to the NFL Draft value chart, depending on which pick they landed in the No. 6-9 the Bears would need to make up anywhere between 1,000 to 1,250 value points to make a trade worth accepting for the Jaguars and would need 1,400 to 1,650...

It makes sense to trade him now with New Orleans building around Zion Williamson, and the compensation they got back will absolutely help with that. As for the Bucks? It’s all about keeping Giannis Antetokounmpo happy. And they may have done just that with this trade and another reported deal to get Bogdan Bogdanovic. Let’s break this trade down with some grades.

At 5-3 and in possession of one of the league’s best defenses, the Bears are being let down by the poor quarterback play of Nick Foles and an offense that looks completely discombobulated at the moment.

    Experts worry as US virus restrictions violated Americas best hole-in-the-wall fried chicken joints The best trade destinations for Bears receiver Allen Robinson It would seem that the relationship between the Chicago Bears and star wide receiver Allen Robinson is reaching a boiling point. Bears fans might have been feeling good in the wake of Chicago’s comeback victory over the Detroit Lions, but Tuesday probably did not feel that great. The football world woke up to Robinson removing all associations wit the team from his social media pages, which led to perhaps the greatest parody video in sports media history: © Provided by Touchdown Wire #FreeAllenRobinson pic.twitter.com/oYrfVrDmum— Lorin Cox (@CoxSports1) September 15, 2020 Late on Tuesday rumors swirled that Robinson was seeking a trade. Adam Schefter reported that the player and his agent had not gone that far, but where there is smoke, there is often fire. Beyond that, given the quarterbacks he has played with over his career, Robinson deserves a new home. After all, dating back to college here is the string of passers Robinson has caught...
    West Coast wildfires are ravaging communities. Heres how to help victims and first responders Devastating Recent Restaurant Closures Why the Patriots should trade for Bears wide receiver Allen Robinson By Sam Monson Allen Robinson II is assumed to be angling for a trade out of Chicago because he has removed the Bears from his Instagram bio and deleted all Bears pictures from the account. Speculation will swirl, but this is a development that the New England Patriots should jump all over. Lost in the excitement of the Cam Newton rush-heavy offense in Week 1 was the fact that the Patriots’ receivers still look like a problem on paper. Only two wide receivers even saw targets against Miami, and Julian Edelman was the only one to consistently succeed. He earned a PFF grade of 72.7 for the game, catching five of the six targets sent his way for 57 yards. And while N’Keal Harry caught all five of his, they went for just 39 yards and the team is visibly trying to scheme him a free release and separation because of fears he can’t generate it on his own. Edelman...
    Emmys Couples We Wish Were Still Together Cases rising in 27 states amid Labor Day concerns The Bears trade for Nick Foles looks awful after Mitch Trubisky lands starting QB job Mitchell Trubisky was one of the worst starting quarterbacks in the NFL last season, which led the Bears to spend valuable draft capital to bring in former Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles as a potential No. 1 QB option. © Provided by For The Win In March, the Bears sent a compensatory fourth-round pick to the Jaguars for Foles, and will owe Foles $24 million over the next three seasons. It was a deal that looked bad at the time – and looks even worse now that Foles won’t be the starter. Alternatively, the Bears could have just signed Cam Newton for less money while giving up zero picks – and if Newton is successful with the Patriots, that choice could be difficult to live down for GM Ryan Pace. In a competitive battle, Bears are expected to name Mitchell Trubisky the starting QB, source tells ESPN....
    Getty New Bears QB Nick Foles. Brian Urlacher may be looking into buying the New York Mets alongside J-Lo and A-Rod, but he still takes time to talk football  — and he has some thoughts and opinions about the Chicago Bears’ current quarterback competition. Urlacher appeared on The Pat McAfee Show Wednesday to discuss the upcoming football season, with an emphasis on his former team. When McAfee asked the Hall of Fame linebacker what he thought about the team’s two quarterbacks, Mitchell Trubisky and Nick Foles, Urlacher definitely took sides, saying he was a Mitch man all the way. Follow the Heavy on Bears Facebook page, where you can weigh in on all the latest Bears-related breaking news, rumors, content and more!Urlacher Throws Some Subtle Shade at Nick FolesOne thing that bothered Urlacher about the team’s decision to trade for Foles was GM Ryan Pace’s assurance that Trubisky would be the team’s starter when the 2019 season was over. “A month after the season, Pace was like: ‘Mitch is our guy. We drafted him No. 2 overall, we’re gonna ride...
    Getty Could QB Russell Wilson find himself a teammate of Khalil Mack's in 2021? The latest rumor swirling around the Chicago Bears‘ current quarterback situation has nothing to do with Mitch Trubisky or Nick Foles. It has the Bears trading the farm for Seattle Seahawks superstar Russell Wilson. Total Pro Sports (TPS) recently released a video on their Youtube channel breaking down why this move would “make sense” for all parties involved. Considering both the Bears’ desperation at the quarterback position over the past few decades along with recent rumors the Seahawks considered trading Wilson to the Cleveland Browns in 2018, the folks at TPS seem to think there’s still a chance Seattle could trade him. And if that’s at all a possibility, they think Chicago would be the optimal place for Wilson: “Take a look around the league, and the Chicago Bears look like the most logical landing spot for Russ. No matter what the Bears’ coaches and front office personnel say, Mitch Trubisky won’t be the answer, and the organization is clearly ready to move on...
    TAMPA, FL - OCTOBER 21: David Njoku #85 of the Cleveland Browns catches a pass during pregame before a game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on October 21, 2018 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.(Photo by Julio Aguilar/Getty Images) The Bears can upgrade their tight end position with a trade for David Njoku. The Bears tried to solve their tight end issues through free agency and the NFL Draft, as they added veteran Jimmy Graham, formerly of the rival Green Bay Packers and Notre Dame’s Cole Kmet with their first pick. Those moves ought to make for some improvement, but it’s not enough. If Matt Nagy and Ryan Pace want to survive the next year and offseason in the Windy City, they’ll trade for Browns tight end and former first-rounder David Njoku. When healthy, Njoku is one of the more talented young tight ends in football. He’s still just 23-years-old and feels overshadowed in Cleveland.Should the Bears trade for David Njoku?Reports out of Cleveland suggest they’re trying to convince Njoku to stay, but that’ll be a tough case, as the...
