Chicago Bears Who Could Be Traded

TE Martellus Bennett – He’s under contract for the 2016 season, but held out this offseason for more money and may be planning on doing the same (for even longer) next year. The Bears new management may want to save themselves the headache and deal Bennett now, especially if they don’t plan on extending his deal. Bennett is easily a top-10 TE talent-wise, is under contract next year at a reasonable rate, and could bring back the best draft pick of anyone on this list.

OLB Willie Young – Has only played 40 defensive snaps so far this season and was a healthy scratch last week against the Seahawks. Young was the Bears most consistent pass rusher last season and finished the year with 10 sacks, but the switch to a 3-4 scheme has left Young without a position. NFL teams have always paid a premium for pass rushers and the Bears should be able to find a 4-3 team that would give up at least a late round draft pick for Young’s services. He is signed through the 2016 season at roughly $3M per year. That’s a steal for a player with double-digit sack potential.
