  • Dalton agreed Tuesday to a one-year contract worth up to $6 million with the Saints, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Schefter reports that Dalton's deal includes $3 million guaranteed. The 34-year-old, who logged six starts for the Bears in 2021, gives the Saints an experienced backup option behind presumed starter Jameis Winston (knee). Taysom Hill will primarily see snaps as a tight end instead of at quarterback in 2022.

  • Dalton completed 33 of 48 passes for 325 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions and rushed once for seven yards in the Bears' 31-17 Week 18 loss to the Vikings. He ended the season with 1,515 passing yards, eight touchdown passes and nine interceptions over eight games. On the season, Dalton had six starts, but in only one of those contests did he have more touchdown passes than interceptions. Although he technically has a $5 million contract in 2022, it's a void year, and the Bears would owe him nothing if they choose to part ways with the 11-year veteran. Regardless, he'll likely continue to be a useful backup in the league in his age-34 season, and his fantasy value would be dependent upon whether he's able to draw any starts.

  • Dalton will start Sunday's game in Minnesota, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports. Coach Matt Nagy suggested as much earlier in the week and confirmed it Friday afternoon. Justin Fields was on track to return from an ankle injury for the season finale, only to land on the reserve/COVID-19 list and give Dalton another start in what could be his final appearance for the Bears. The Chicago offense is in good health apart from Fields, with no other starters on the final injury report, COVID list or injured reserve.

  • Dalton is expected to make a second straight start in Sunday's season finale at Minnesota after the Bears placed Justin Fields (illness) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, Jason Lieser of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Fields is vaccinated and therefore has a chance to test out of the NFL's COVID-19 return-to-play protocol in fewer than five days, but given the timing of his placement on the list, he'll more than likely miss a third consecutive game to end his rookie campaign. Along with Fields, Dalton was sidelined Week 16 in Seattle due to a small fracture non-throwing hand, but the latter stepped back into the lineup for the Bears' Week 17 win over the Giants. Over his seven appearances (five starts) this season, Dalton has completed 61.7 percent of his throws for 6.3 yards per attempt and a 7:7 TD:INT while carrying 15 times for 69 yards.

  • Dalton is set to return to a backup role with Justin Fields (ankle) named the Bears' starting quarterback for Week 18 against Minnesota, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports. The season has been disappointing overall for both Dalton and Fields, but the former has shown some promising signs with the campaign nearing its end. In what might have been his last taste of action as a member of the Bears in Week 17, Dalton started in place of an injured Fields and completed 18 of 35 attempts for 173 yards, a touchdown and an interception. The 34-year-old is scheduled for unrestricted free agency in the offseason, and there's no guarantee of another shot at a Week 1 starting job no matter where he lands.
