Chicago Bears To Trade Quarterback To New York Jets; Bears Franchise To Be Sold?

Written by Chris Powers

The 2021 offseason has been the year of quarterback controversy throughout the NFL. While not every time has had controversy at the QB position, this year more than ever there has been issues. Whether it be with starting quarterbacks, backups, you name it. Things are no different in Chicago.

Last year, Nick Foles was picked up from the Jacksonville Jaguars. Since then, the Bears also signed Andy Dalton during the offseason, and with their first round draft pick locked down Justin Fields. The question is, where does that leave Nick Foles? With the amount of money they are paying Dalton and Fields, there just isn’t room for Foles long term. According to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, Nick Foles could very likely end up with the New York Jets! Check out what Biggs had to see below:

The team that makes the most sense for Foles is the New York Jets. They’re going to start No. 2 pick Zach Wilson from Day 1 unless training camp and preseason are complete disasters for him. The only other quarterbacks on the roster are James Morgan, a fourth-round pick a year ago, and Mike White, who entered the league in 2019 as an undrafted free agent. The Jets could use a veteran with experience to show Wilson the ropes, help teach him how to study film and be a mentor of sorts. Foles seems like an ideal candidate to be that guy, and having him and Andy Dalton on the Bears roster with Justin Fields is redundant. The Bears would create a salary-cap savings if they can trade Foles after June 1.

In other NFL news, there has been speculation that The McCaskey family who owns the Chicago Bear franchise, may be selling the team. Per Jim O’Donnell of the Daily Herald, the sale of the team may be imminent.

If the McCaskey family does indeed to decide to sell the team, there are three primary individuals that are most likely to buy it. Pat Ryan, Jeff Bezos and Neil Bluhm. Ryan already owns nearly 20% of the organization with Andrew McKenna. While Jeff Bezos was linked to potentially buying the Washington Football Team this year, he seems like a likely candidate given his desire to be an NFL owner.

Only time will tell if the McCaskeys do end up selling the franchise. The question is, would the Bears stay in Chicago? And would they remain at Solider Field?
