The Dallas Cowboys and Chicago Bears are having nearly completely opposite seasons so far in 2023. Despite their shocking loss to the Arizona Cardinals, they have looked like one of the best teams in the NFL this year.
The Chicago Bears are already being picked as a team to have the first overall draft pick in back-to-back drafts. If these tends continue on both sides, it might benefit both sides to see a Bears wide receiver traded to Texas.
The Chicago Bears Send Veteran Wide Receiver Chase Claypool To The Dallas Cowboys In Bold Proposal
Alex Ballentine of Bleacher Report highlighted with this could benefit both team:
The Chicago Bears made a regrettable trade when they shipped off a second-round pick for Chase Claypool last year. That selection became the 32nd overall selection while the player has vastly underperformed in the Windy City.
That has become even more apparent in the first two weeks of this season. With a full offseason to get acclimated and to buy into what Chicago is doing, the 25-year-old has been nonexistent in the offense.
He has just three catches on 10 targets for 36 yards and a touchdown. Jay Glazer of Fox Sports (h/t Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk) reported the Bears were frustrated with the receiver’s effort and he would be “possibly even shipped out of town again.”
Taking on a player like Claypool with questionable effort is a gamble. That’s the kind of thing that could throw off chemistry, but it’s a relatively low-risk gamble for the Cowboys. If the Bears are desperate to unload him, they probably will do it at a discounted price.
Claypool’s cap hit is only $3 million this season, so there’s little financial risk to it either.
At best, he would be rejuvenated by playing for a winning team with a real chance to contend and emerge as yet another weapon for Dak Prescott. At worst, his poor effort continues, and the Cowboys can cut bait at a relatively low cost.
Claypool is a gifted receiver when he’s at his best. He is a big, physical presence who isn’t quite like anyone else the Cowboys have and would provide some insurance against an injury like the MCL sprain that held Brandin Cooks out of Week 2.
So far in three games Claypool has accumulated four receptions for 51 yards and one touchdown. A change of scenery with an established quarterback like Dak Prescott. If the Bears don’t a future with Claypool they could be enticed to get something for him now in a trade rather than letting him walk in free agency.
The Cowboys would get wide receiver depth for extremely cheap.
