Ryan Poles making moves!
Ryan Poles took the job in Chicago realizing he had a rebuild ahead of him, after a few moves this off-season the Chicago Bears make 3 moves to start the rebuild! The trade deadline often goes by in the NFL without much happening, but this year there were a ton of moves all over the league, but the Chicago bears jump started the rebuild at the trade deadline.
The deadline has come and pass.
The Bears moved:
2023 2nd rounder (Bears)
– Chase Claypool
– Ravens 2023 2nd rounder
– Ravens 2023 5th rounder
– Eagles 2023 4th rounder

Trading Away Robert Quinn
Robert Quinn had a record-breaking season last year for the Chicago Bears. The then 31-year-old pass rusher tallied 18.5 sacks to set the Bears record. in a city that prides itself on defense that record stood for decades. However, this year Quinn hasn’t gotten off to the greatest start & a 32-year-old pass rusher going through a rebuild just wasn’t a good fit. He was only able to get 1 sack in a Bears jersey this year, so his trade value wasn’t very high. Ryan Poles was able to get a 4th round pick from the Philidelphia Eagles to send him to the city of brotherly love to play for a title contender in Philly. I felt like this was a smart trade that made sense for both sides, bears get a needed draft pick & Philly adds to its stable of pass-rushers.

Trading Away Roquan Smith
This trade was a bit of a surprise. Roquan Smith is a 25-year-old off ball linebacker that currently leads the NFL in tackles. However, he did have a hold in this off-season & a trade demand. If he had an agent who knows, he’s probably still a bear, but his asking price was rumored to be over 20 million dollars, that’s a steep price for an off-ball linebacker that’s had an up & down season this year. They got a 2nd round pick a 5th round pick & AJ Klein (LB) from Baltimore to move on from the linebacker & will look for young players to fill his shoes, it will be a huge job for new Head Coach Matt Eberflus.

Bears Acquire Chase Claypool from the Pittsburgh Steelers
It wasn’t all sell for the Chicago Bears; they used their 2nd round pick to go get Justin Fields a downfield threat that he badly needed. Chase Claypool burst onto the scene in his rookie season totaling 873 yards in 6 games started for 9 touchdowns! The 6’4 238-pound wide receiver runs a 4.42 40-yard dash. Has the size & speed to stretch the field & go up & get the ball at its highest point. He played his college football nearby in South Bend, Indiana for Notre Dame with teammate Cole Kmet, Equanimeous St. Brown & Sam Mustipher he should feel right at home in this Chicago Bears locker room.
