The Chicago Bears ended their quest to trade for Russell Wilson yesterday but they certainly tried very hard to get him.

After the Bears signed QB Andy Dalton on Tuesday afternoon, ESPN’s Adam Schefter revealed the team went all-in on a trade for Wilson but the Seahawks turned them down.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday that Bears GM Ryan Pace and Seahawks GM John Schneider met earlier this week and were in serious discussions about a trade.

“The Bears certainly made a big offer — multiple first-round picks,” “The Seahawks slept on it. They discussed it. Yesterday, they decided, specifically coach Pete Carroll, 70 years old, does not want to rebuild, decided we are not trading Russell Wilson to the Bears.”

Dan Patrick went on to reveal that the Seahawks turned down three first-round picks, a third-round pick, and two starters who were not named in exchange for Wilson.

Seems like a lot to turn down but Russell Wilson is that good.
