Bears fans are miserable today, now that their team signed Andy Dalton instead of Russell Wilson, and while the following details won’t help, they will provide a “what could’ve been” moment to think about.
According to Dan Patrick, the Bears offered the Seahawks three first-round picks, a third-round pick, and two other starters for Russell Wilson. Seattle, of course, wasn’t down for that. Thus the Bears settled for Dalton. LOL.
About an hour ago DP was told that the #Bears offered Seattle the following for Russell Wilson:
-Three 1st Round picks
-a 3rd Round pick
-2 starters (Was not told who those starters were) pic.twitter.com/lOgH2ZuLVC

The football film guys who told me the Chiefs would beat the Bucs in Super Bowl LV can debate the reported package. Have it. I, on the other hand, will tell you about this leak. It seems someone put this out to disclose the starting asking price for Wilson.
Even if the Seahawks don’t trade Wilson this year, they know that they might have to do so eventually. Getting this out there now allows teams to plan for a viable package in the coming years.
I’m speaking to you, Lions. Starting planning.
