Bears offered three first-round picks, a third-rounder, and two starters for Russell Wilson

The Bears did indeed try to finagle a trade for Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.

According to Dan Patrick, Chicago offered three first-round picks, a third-round pick, and two unnamed starters for Wilson. The Seahawks, obviously, passed.

The problem, from the Bearsí perspective, is that they hold the 20th overall pick this year. And if they have Wilson, the future first-round picks likely would landed in the 20s as well.

The only remaining question is whether some other team with a higher spot in the 2021 pecking order decides to make a similar effort. The Jets, for example, have pick No. 2. The Dolphins have pick No. 3. The Panthers hold pick No. 8.

3 1st rounders, a 3rd and 2 starters? Wow, that's a lot. Ryan Pace is either gonna get them over the top or hurt the franchise down the road. Kind of surprised Seattle didn't bite.

Shades of the Jimmy Johnson/Walker trade from back in the day.

IMO Russ stays in Seattle.

Smells like desperation for Pace and company. They must be having nightmares about passing on Mahomes.
