The Chicago Bears have secured a new quarterback for the 2021 season.

Former Cowboys quarterback Andy Dalton has signed a one-year, $10 million deal plus $3 million in incentives according to multiple reports.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport has the latest news on the signing.

"Chicago has been circling on Andy Dalton for a few days, with the 49ers among the other teams to have interest," he posted. "Now, it’s Chicago with a real chance to start."

The Bears had a "very aggressive pursuit" of quarterback Russell Wilson but Seattle told them they were not trading him at this time according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Schefter said the following on ESPN SportsCenter on Tuesday night.

“I know Nick Foles is there but I think Andy Dalton goes in there as the guy that will end up being the starting quarterback for the Chicago Bears.”

In 2020, Dalton threw for 2,169 yards with 14 passing touchdowns and 8 interceptions for a QBR of 53.8.

He will be reunited with Bears offensive coordinator Bill Lazor in Chicago.
