Chicago Bears are not a fit for money or Super Bowl hopes

J.J. Watt wants to play for a contender. He may take less money to do so. While that sounds great, that does not mean he is taking less money to come to Chicago. They are not the Super Bowl contender right now. They do not know who their quarterback or even who their wide receivers will be. That is the team J.J. Watt wants to chase rings with?

This is not happening.

When you look at the Bears salary cap situation, they are below average right now. They have less money than teams such as the Browns, Ravens, Bills, 49ers, Colts, and others. It will hurt Bears fans to hear, but all of those teams provide a better chance at chasing a ring right now.

All of those teams can pay more, and all of those teams have a bigger need on their defense than Chicago. The idea of J.J. Watt to Chicago is fun in theory and there is always that chance that he wants to play in the same town as his family. Still, there are so many other reasons he would go elsewhere that it is hard to think Watt will play for the Chicago Bears.
