News and Rumors

We’ll get the Wednesday free agency party started right here at 8:00 a.m.

  • If the Bears trade Nick Foles, Brad Biggs says to watch for Alex Smith joining the Bears QB room. (link)
  • Bears bringing Germain Ifedi back. (link)
  • Brad Biggs reports the Bears are out on Trent Williams. (link)
  • ANDY FREAKING DALTON IS A BEAR! (link)
  • Anthony Miller is on the trade block. (link)
  • NFL Draft Diamonds thinks the Bears are targeting a wide out soon. (link)
  • NFL Network’s Jane Slater also saying there isn’t much of a market right now for Trubisky. (link)
  • Dianna Russini reports the 49ers are pushing hard to keep Trent Williams (link)
  • Some more Trent Williams to the Bears buzz. (link)
  • Jane Slater thinks the Saints may look towards Mitch Trubisky to back up their QB situation considering they are a place that likes reclamation QB projects. (link)
  • Mike Tennenbaun believes the Bears need to trade for Sam Darnold or convince Andrew Luck to unretire. (link) Can I get a wtf?
  • The NFL Network’s Mike Garofolo says the Bears “are in” on Andy Dalton, but that the 49ers are also looking at him. The ‘Niners were one of the teams interested in Mitchell Trubisky, so if they add Dalton to back up Jimmy Garoppolo that would leave Mitch out. (link)
  • The Seattle Seahawks may be looking to add running back Leonard Fournette, who will fit their old school style, but probably not make Russell Wilson happy. (link)
  • Brad Biggs walked back some of the Andy Dalton talk with more context. (link)
  • The Lions are cutting Chase Danial, so there’s a new vet QB2 possibility out there if the Bears are interested. (link)
