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:
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?
