Things are starting to heat up when it comes to the Chicago Bears and possible trades. We've heard that the Bears have discussed a trade for Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton, and we also heard the Bears could acquire a TE through trade. When it comes to Dalton, the cost to acquire him would likely be a 3rd or 4th round pick however Dalton's cap hit could be the biggest hurdle. Now ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports that the Bengals are willing to work with the Bears to lighten that load. Fowler reports that the Bengals would be willing to eat some of Dalton's cap hit to facilitate a trade to the Bears. "One potential hurdle is cap space. The Bears have $25,197,387 of space entering March, according to ESPN's Roster Management System, but they can gain more with contract restructures or player releases. Dalton currently holds a $17.7 million cap hit on the Bengals' books. Cincinnati might be able to eat some of that money to facilitate a deal."
As the trade becomes a real possibility, do you think Dalton could steal Trubisky's starting job?
