30 Day Challenge: Current player you wish the Chicago Bears had on their roster

New, comments

We're still up to it. Today we're looking at players we'd most want to have on their team.

This league is full of great players. Most of them are not currently Chicago Bears.

The names that come to mind immediately are the quarterbacks: Rodgers, Brady, Manning. Then you think running backs like Marshawn Lynch, who can change the game. Or maybe a top-flight receiver like Calvin Johnson.

I gotta go defense, though: I'm looking at you, J.J. Watt

Watt is a beast in the truest sense of the word. He goes hard on defense, he can sub in on offense, and even has some touch catching the ball.

Now 26, Watt wasn't necessarily supposed to light the league up coming out of Wisconsin. Light it up he did, though, as he got a six-year $100 million deal.

  • 57 sacks in four seasons
  • 12 career forced fumbles

Who doesn't want that?

And he's a good deal off the field. Check out what the JJ Watt foundation has been doing, providing uniforms and equipment to schools in need.

He'll write you a letter to get you out of work, if you need.

He just seems like the perfect player and teammate, and he's the kind of guy who can be the face of your franchise. I'm so jealous of the Texans.

Now it's your turn. Tell us who you'd like the Bears to steal in this magic fantasy world we've created.
