The Chicago Bears made the move to trade for Nick Foles and add to their quarterback room a week ago, parting ways with their fourth-round comp pick.
Chicago traded for Foles to come in and not only compete with Mitchell Trubisky but be the starter come Week 1 of the 2020 season. There will be a competition between the two this offseason, whenever it resumes, and it will certainly be the top storyline for the franchise.
But are the Bears done adding to the position? Maybe not.
This is a very intriguing draft for quarterbacks and although it’s top-heavy with the potential of four going in the first round, the Bears could have a chance to land a prospect that some scouts are high on, Jalen Hurts. The latest to connect the Bears to the former Alabama and Oklahoma quarterback is Bleacher Report’s Matt Miller.
The draft scout talked about Hurts and his fit with the Bears on the latest episode of the Stick To Football podcast, calling the quarterback a good fit for Matt Nagy’s offense:

There’s no doubt Hurts is an interesting player but the reaction to the quarterback has been all over the place. Some scouts absolutely love his game and think he can be a legit quarterback at the next level. Others aren’t a fan of him as a quarterback and wouldn’t take the risk.
Hurts likely isn’t going past Day 2 of the draft and the Bears have two second-round picks but after that, they don’t pick again until the fifth round.
Should the Bears add Hurts to their quarterback room as a long-term option? Comment below.

They should absolutely draft Hurts. He not only is a proven winner and leader, but he has shown he puts in the works and it translates on the field with his marked improvement every single year! Draft, sit him this year to watch Foles and be mentored by Nagy and Flip, then he takes over next year. He would finally be the QB Chicago has always wanted!
I agree with you so much but will Ryan Pace make that move. I don’t think so. I don’t know why but Jalen Hurts would be loved on a level on the Great Walter Payton if Pace Drafts him. Something about him most people like problem with some GM’s is they don’t see it just like they didn’t See Aaron Rogers, Lamar Jackson, or Patrick Mahomes.
