If the Bears want a veteran presence in the room with Mitch Trubisky, then Andy Dalton is not a bad option at all.

In fact, he’s probably the best option on the table. Dalton has won a lot of games in the NFL. People seem to forget that.

Is he a superstar? No. Is he a guy you want as your starting quarterback? Probably not, but he can play at a much higher level than people think.

If the goal of the Bears is to push Trubisky, then Dalton could be an outstanding option for the right price, which I’m sure would be relatively low.

We’ll see what happens, but Dalton’s days as the starting quarterback of the Bengals are over the moment they draft Joe Burrow.

Where will he land? That’s the question we’re waiting to get answered, and Chicago isn’t a bad option.
