The Bears signed former Bengals and Cowboys quarterback Andy Dalton to a one-year, $10 million deal on Tuesday.  The move came after Chicago tried and failed to acquire Russell Wilson from the Seahawks.

According to reports, the Bears made a big offer for the star quarterback.  The deal included multiple first-round picks as well as a third-round pick and two starters.

The deal was turned down by Pete Carroll because he's getting up there in age and isn't interested in rebuilding.

It sounds like the Bears made the best offer they possibly could during their little GM picnic with the Seahawks.  You can't fault them for going all in on Wilson.  But plan B can't be Andy Dalton.  They now have Dalton and Nick Foles doing that Spiderman meme in the quarterback room.
