The Chicago Bears are trying to figure out their quarterback room for the 2021 season.

As it stands right now, Matt Nagy and Ryan Pace will likely roll out veteran Nick Foles for the upcoming season if nothing drastic happens.

However, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, the Bears are actually a sleeper team that could make a move for star signal-caller Deshaun Watson.

"A couple of sleepers for you, Greeny, don't laugh," he said on ESPN's Get Up. "The Chicago Bears – I know there are people in that building very high on Deshaun Watson, even though they passed on him in 2017. GM Ryan Pace could maybe get a mulligan. They've never had a 4,000-yard passer there. They could finally change that."

The Bears would likely have to give up a stack of draft picks, but it certainly would be fun to watch Watson running the show in the Windy City.
