CINCINNATI — Former Bengals signal-caller Andy Dalton is hoping to re-establish himself as a starting caliber quarterback.
He signed with the Bears this offseason because they promised him the starting job. They followed that up by taking former Ohio State star Justin Fields with the 11th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Since then, the coaching staff has said that Dalton will be the starter, which would allow Fields to adjust to life in the NFL.
Despite Matt Nagy's consistent with that message, some believe Fields could start sooner rather than later.
The oddsmakers aren't buying it. They think Dalton will start Week 1. He is the clear cut favorite to start the year under center according to the latest odds released by BetOnline.
Dalton is -1200 (1/12) to start the season at quarterback for the Bears. Fields is +600 (6/1).
There's still plenty of time for those odds to swing in Fields' favor, especially since the preseason hasn't started, but it looks like Dalton is going to get one more shot to show what he can do as a starter.
