The Bears and Panthers sit near each other on the NFL’s most miserable merry-go-round — quarterback-starved and picking through other franchises’ trash cans to try to solve the most elusive riddle in sports.To get more news about chicago bears, you can visit bearsbuy official website.

The Bears traded for Nick Foles last year — a backup whose contract is now a liability — and signed Andy Dalton to a one-year, $10 million deal last month.

One year and two weeks ago, the Panthers handed free-agent quarterback Teddy Bridgewater a three-year, $63 million contract. On Monday, the Panthers gave up on him after 15 starts, trading three draft picks — a sixth-rounder this year and second- and fourth-round picks in 2022 — for Jets quarterback Sam Darnold.

Darnold is the most tempting of the four. He won’t turn 24 until June, making him seven months younger than Joe Burrow, last year’s top selection. The 2018 No. 3 draft pick from USC has the pedigree but a price tag that comes with it. The Panthers certainly will pick up Darnold’s fifth-year option for 2022, a fully guaranteed $18.9 million.It would have been fascinating had the Bears tried the same tack, giving coach Matt Nagy a chance to revive Darnold’s career. But trading picks — even those a year into the future — runs counter to the Bears’ current approach of trying to support a middling quarterback with draft help. For all the criticisms of Dalton, he merely cost them money.

Removing Darnold from the Jets’ circus — former Bears offensive coordinator Adam Gase oversaw what might be the two-year nadir of the franchise — will make him better. Of the four starting quarterbacks traded this offseason, Darnold might have been the most polarizing. A sampling of league sources this offseason produced more non-believers than intrigued parties.
