Chicago Bears: 5 best-case scenario quarterback rooms
By Joseph Herff
Chicago Bears Scenario No. 2: Sell the farm for Deshaun Watson
Giving up virtually everything for just one player is not normally a good idea, and frankly, I don’t know how on board I would be with this idea either. However, the Bears have the chance to correct their wrongdoing from the 2017 NFL Draft and acquire a 25-year-old elite quarterback in Deshaun Watson.
The likely trade would be along the lines of this:
This trade may not even get it done either, and this trade would set the Bears defense back quite a bit as their inside linebackers are pretty weak outside of Roquan Smith. Again, the defense would still retain stars in Khalil Mack, Eddie Jackson, and Kyle Fuller with other great players alongside them.
This team would be instant competitors if this trade went down. Watson, despite being on the horrid Houston Texans, completed over 70% of his passes for over 4,800 yards and 33 touchdowns with a 112.4 passer rating. His career passer rating is 104.5. This is an elite quarterback that would completely make the Bears Super Bowl contenders.
- Deshaun Watson
- Nick Foles
- Practice Squad free agent or rookie
The same applies as Dak Prescott. The Bears would have a high-end starting quarterback and backup quarterback. They wouldn’t need much depth behind them. Although it would be hard to get Watson, they should at least try.
