One report claims that the Bears offered Teddy Bridgewater a 3-year, $60 million contract


It's been interesting to watch the Bears stay patient while the quarterback market around them is moving so quickly. More than a couple of the team's rumored targets are already off the board, having gone to places like Las Vegas, Cleveland, and Carolina. Even though the Bears had been rumored to be 'all over the QB market', it was a mild surprise to hear them connected to Teddy Bridgewater, who many considered the second-best available free agent. 

Not only were they connected, but according to one report, the Bears were ready to express their interest financially: 

That's a lot of money! At the least, it's way more than where people expected the Bears to operate this offseason. The money aside, the fact that Bridgewater's camp was concerned about a QB competition is an interesting nugget. One would think a three-year, $60 million contract doesn't come with a QB competition. Bridgewater's well within his rights to take the offer that guarantees him the starting job, but the fact that the Bears reportedly offered him the same amount of money he took from Carolina, without the guarantee, exposes Ryan Pace's position a bit. 

Or maybe none of this is true! But that's the fun of the legal tampering window. No one knows! Believe anything you want!
