Report: Bears 'have prioritized making a...


Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has taken over the headlines the last couple of weeks, especially after his camp named four possible trade destinations Wilson would find acceptable.

One of the teams Wilson mentioned (via his agent Mark Rodgers and some help from ESPN’s Adam Schefter’s Twitter account) is none other than the Chicago Bears.

The Bears, it turns out, may have more than just a mutual interest in Wilson coming to the Windy City.

“The thinking among multiple sources is the Bears have prioritized making a run at Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson,” writes Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribue. “His agent included the team on a list of four clubs Wilson would approve a trade to, although it hasn’t yet reached the point where he’s asked out. Two of the other three teams on Wilson’s list probably can be ruled out. The New Orleans Saints are mired in salary-cap hell and the Dallas Cowboys are expected to keep Dak Prescott. The fourth is the Las Vegas Raiders, and they’ve showed strong public support for Derek Carr.”

While this may simply be a case of a columnist making his argument, his sources could also be correct, and the Bears are readying themselves to make a serious push for Seattle’s star QB.

Whether or not Seattle is as interested in dealing, is a whole different story.
