The Chicago Bears feel like they are on the brink of something big. They feel they have provided Justin Fields has the pieces that could make for a lethal offensive attack. Headlined by their trade for D.J. Moore this off-season, the Bears have added multiple playmakers. One thing they seem to be missing? A superstar running back.
Chicago Bears Named In Massive Trade With The Indianapolis Colts For Jonathan Taylor
According to Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald, the Indianapolis Colts have rejected at least one trade offer for Taylor from the Miami Dolphins but have also been in talks with at least two other teams, which he identified as the Bears and the Denver Broncos.
“Miami has made at least one offer, that was not accepted, and continues to engage the Colts in negotiations, according to a source,” Jackson wrote Thursday. “Denver and Chicago are among other teams that reportedly have expressed interest.”
In addition, Jackson wrote that a team was also believed to have made a serious offer to acquire the Colts’ 2021 All-Pro running back; however, he followed up by saying that Indianapolis had not received a first-round pick or something comparable for Taylor, as of Thursday morning.
What Could The Bears Offer The Colts?
Indianapolis is reportedly seeking a first-round pick, but could be willing to trade Taylor for draft assets equating to a first-round pick. Whatever the case may be, the Bears are in a strong position to make this deal.
The Colts may be interested in finding out what Chicago GM Ryan Poles has to offer them. There are actually plenty of options available to him.
In addition to Chicago’s own first-round pick in 2024, the Bears own the Carolina Panthers’ first pick next year, which they acquired ahead of the current NFL Draft so that Carolina could select Alabama quarterback Bryce Young with Chicago’s pick.
Along with the Panthers’ first-round pick in 2019, the Bears received a second-round pick in 2025 and wideout D.J. Moore, who should become Justin Fields’ top weapon this season. What that means, overall, for the 2024 draft is that the Bears own two first-round picks, a second-rounder, a third-rounder, two fourth-rounders (their own and Philadelphia’s), a fifth-rounder, and a sixth-rounder.
All in all, the Bears have the draft capital and the salary cap to make the move happen. The only question is, will they?
