Report: Bears are “prioritized” a trade for Seahawks’ Russell Wilson

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

According to the Chicago Tribune, the Chicago Bears have “prioritized” their trade interest in Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. The report comes from the Bears beat writer Brad Biggs, who has covered the team for a long time.

Wilson is not happy in Seattle. He would have to waive his no-trade clause to make a deal happen.

He is not happy with Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll. Or the team’s personnel decisions.

It is going to take a long to make a deal for Wilson. However, it would be an upgrade at the quarterback position.

Mitchell Trubisky is a free agent and likely will not return to the team. Nick Foles has had a losing record as a starting quarterback. Foles is not the team’s answer at the position.

The Bears would be making a home run swing with the acquisition of Wilson if a deal could be made. Wilson’s agent previously said that he would accept a trade to the Bears, along with the New Orleans Saints, Dallas Cowboys, and the Las Vegas Raiders.

Of the teams that Wilson is interested in going to, the most likely option is the Bears. The Cowboys are expected to franchise tag quarterback Dak Prescott once again at more than $37 million for the 2021 season.

The Saints have a bad cap situation, which makes a trade unlikely. There has been speculation that the Raiders will sign Derek Carr to a contract extension.

Wilson — who has the potential to be a future Hall of Famer — has been the Seahawks starter since the 2012 season. He also guided the team to a Super Bowl win.

He has appeared in 144 games, including 144 starts. He has gone 98-45-1 as a starter.

The Cincinnati, Ohio native was a third-round draft pick by the Seahawks in the 2012 NFL Draft. Since then, he has gone 2,820 of 4,335 for 33,946 yards. He has also thrown 267 touchdown passes and 81 interceptions.
