LAKE FOREST, Ill. – Looks like Andy Dalton is headed to Halas Hall.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the former Cowboys quarterback is signing a one-year, $10 million deal with the Bears.
Dalton started nine of the eleven games he played in Dallas last season, throwing for 2,170 yards, 14 touchdowns and 8 interceptions.
Originally drafted by the Bengals, the 33-year-old second round pick has struggled in the playoffs, going 0-4 in Cincinnati with just one TD and six picks.
Dalton joins Nick Foles as the only QBs on the Bears roster. General Manager Ryan Pace made the quarterback spot a position of emphasis heading into the offseason.
“Everything’s on the table in regard to the quarterback situation,” Pace said in early March. “And honestly, that includes players on our current roster. And that includes free agency, a trade, the draft and a combination of all those.”
Last season, Bears made the playoffs for the second time since Matt Nagy was hired in 2018. But they also went 8-8 in the regular season for the second year in a row, before a convincing wild-card loss at New Orleans.
