Bears Top Landing Spot for Former $118 Million QB after Fields Trade

After dealing Justin Fields to the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Chicago Bears must examine the backup quarterback position with the #1 pick in the NFL draft.

Chicago's first pick in April and likely starter in Week 1 is USC's Caleb Williams. However, the Bears are ready to add a senior signal-caller to assist Williams adjust to the NFL and provide a backup if he suffers an injury.

On Sunday, March 17, Bleacher Report's Timothy Rapp offered Ryan Tannehill, a free agent and former Tennessee Titans starter, for the Chicago position.

Injury sidelined Tannehill for the 2017 season after 12 years in the NFL. The 36-year-old will play next season.

In 2012, the Miami Dolphins drafted the Texas A&M quarterback eighth overall in the first round. After the 2018 season, Miami traded Tannehill to Tennessee.

After leading the Titans to the AFC Championship Game, Tannehill received his first and only Pro Bowl nod. Tennessee was the conference's best and most consistent team for the next two seasons, making the playoffs each time.

Tannehill has an 81-70 regular-season record and a 2-3 postseason record.

Pro Football Reference reports 64.3% completions, 34,881 yards, 216 TDs, and 115 INTs.
