I would be ecstatic with a Newton addition.

Do they have the money after signing Graham and Quinn?  Newton is owed $18.6 million for next season.

Could that be adjusted with a new  contract?

Sure, but if you are immediately trying to extend Newton, why even bring Trubisky back?

Because his contract this year is fully guaranteed and cutting him frees up $0.

You could also do something with Newton's deal like making it a $10 m contract this year with a big roster bonus next spring, where it is clear that if he's good enough the contract will be torn up, and if he's not good enough they would cut him before the roster bonus making him a free agent.

Look at this shit, on top of his 30 interceptions he had 21(!!!!!) -DROPPED- interceptions

 

Some of those are not really dropped interceptions, they barely had any chance.  But there are still plenty in there that are straight drops.

meh, they absolutely went after a qb that would only be competition. I know I spoke well of foles in past, but that was in comparison to bridgewater. I think this is a garbage, flailing offseason.

Nah, that contract is starter money.  Mitch is done, Foles knows this offense

Oh he might start, but they didn't find themselves a starter.

Bmags is spot on.  This is Pace trying to save his job by signing mediocre vets and attempting to luck into a 10 win season and a playoff appearance.  It’s so obvious it hurts.

Also, every bit of Foles success as a starter has come with in Andy Reid tree offenses. 

Elsewhere, he's sucked. Pace is betting on that.

Foles best season by far was under Chip Kelly

How much of the answer to both of those has been "Health"?

That's true. I got confused and thought Reid was still in Philly. I stand corrected.

The Bears needed someone with a high football IQ, that will compete with Trubisky and push him for the job. Foles is that guy. He is also a more accurate thrower than Trubisky and knows when to throw the ball instead of giving up and taking a dumb sack. Foles got hurt in the first game of the season and in the first quarter. Give the guy a chance.

Big Dick Nick! At least Bears finally have a QB with Super Bowl (MVP) credentials.

Worked out great for the Broncos giving up a 4th round pick for a mediocre at best QB making a lot of money who had a couple hot streaks in his career.

That's sadly better than anything we've ever had as a franchise. :lol: 

It's ridiculous to me that he can opt out of his deal if he has a good year and the Bears didn't get a draft pick in return though.
