Garafolo: Bears Have Been “Really Persistent” in Reciprocating Russell Wilson Interest

Chicago Bears

I’m riding the wave of Russell Wilson rumors to the moon.

Next stop, the Bears reciprocating interest in the star quarterback:

Here’s the money line:

“The Bears would do cartwheels to get Russell Wilson at this point,” said NFL Network insider Mike Garafolo on a radio hit. “They have been really persistent, from what I’mm told, in reciprocating the interest.”

In case you missed it, Russell Wilson trade rumor chatter hit a fever pitch today. It started with Wilson’s camp reportedly speaking to the Seahawks regarding possible trade destinations. From there, it grew to the sharing of a list (via Wilson’s agent) of teams which he would accept a trade – the Bears were among those teams.

Hence, the Bears being “persistent” in “reciprocating” their interest in making Wilson their franchise quarterback.

Miss me with a suggestive emoji and bring on old-fashioned courtship featuring grand gestures of adoration. Especially for a quarterback as gifted as Wilson.

To be fair, Garafolo also reiterated the Seahawks’ desire to keep Wilson for this season. And why wouldn’t they? The guy is a star. But that Wilson has a set of teams he’s willing to be dealt to tells us all we need to know about the situation. In other words, strap yourselves in for an obsessive Wilson watch.
