Bears should be all-in on trade for Bengals QB Andy Dalton

The Cincinnati Bengals kicked off their offseason marketing of quarterback Andy Dalton on Wednesday, who's expected to be traded by or before the 2020 NFL Draft. The Bengals hold the first overall pick and barring some shocking turn of events, will select LSU quarterback Joe Burrow.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport spoke with Bengals director of player personnel Dick Tobin who declined to confirm a trade is coming. However, it's clear Cincinnati wants to do right by Dalton, and the only reasonable way to accomplish that goal is by sending him to a team where he can compete for the starting job.
