It seems that the NFL is ready for a quarterback swap explosion this offseason. Big-name free agents are hitting the market and trades could quickly follow. The Chicago Bears could offer one of these trade packages for Derek Carr.

How many times are we going to mention the Chicago Bears and the word quarterback this offseason? Well, remember last year when they had a kicker issue? Now Ryan Pace and Matt Nagy are facing a similar situation with the quarterback position.

Alright, that may be a little extreme, but Mitchell Trubisky struggled in 2019 and even someone who believes in him (me included) cannot deny that he needs to be better. With Chase Daniel and Tyler Bray hitting free agency, and the Chicago Bears in a win-now mode, the team cannot count solely on Trubisky finding his success in 2020.

To help in this matter, the team should look at adding some real competition. We recently broke down 12 quarterbacks who have been rumored targets for the Chicago Bears this offseason.  Not all of these names should be brought into the Windy City, but there are a select few Ryan Pace must consider if he truly wants to win a Super Bowl and maintain his position as the Bears’ general manager. The other option is drafting a legit threat to Trubisky’s playing time.

No matter which direction he goes, Pace cannot just throw Trubisky out there expecting different results and not have a backup plan. Well, if the Las Vegas (Oakland) Raiders sign Tom Brady this offseason, Derek Carr will be available. If I am Pace, I am going after him and not taking no for an answer from Jon Gruden. Here are three trade offers Pace should consider suggesting to Gruden.
