“They told me I was the starter. That was one of the reasons why I wanted to come here,” Dalton said, via Kevin Fishbain of TheAthletic.com.
The Bears made a play for a Russell Wilson trade before signing Dalton and there’s no long-term answer at the position on hand, so the team’s message in March may not wind up being the same after April’s draft or once they’re at training camp this summer. For now, though, Dalton is No. 1 in Chicago.
