The NFL trade deadline is fast approaching. Some teams will look to move assets and begin anew, while others will try to rearm and replenish for a potential championship run.
Conventional wisdom says that the Chicago Bears will continue to be sellers since General Manager Ryan Poles has already moved on from many players in the offseason. Names being talked about as potential trade pieces for the Bears include pass rusher Robert Quinn, linebacker Roquan Smith, and even running back David Montgomery.
If the price is right, I’d be happy to move on from these three. However, I think that the Bears should also consider buying at the deadline. They won’t be pushing for a championship this year, but given how badly the current wide receiver room has performed, the team needs a shot in the arm just to be competitive.
The Bears shouldn’t be throwing out precious draft picks for just anyone. There are only two realistic targets for a trade that I would like to see the Bears make.
