The Chicago Bears need a strong safety to play in the box next to Eddie Jackson. They lost Ha Ha Clinton-Dix in free agency, but how about trading for someone even better? Could Ryan Pace find a way to land Jamal Adams?

The Chicago Bears will need to be creative for the rest of the offseason. The team is strapped for cash and the only way they can add upgrades to the roster is through select trades and the 2020 NFL Draft. If I am Ryan Pace, I am going to start calling select teams and inquire about possible trade candidates. After losing Ha Ha Clinton-Dix in free agency, safety became a bigger need.

One of those trade candidates could be Jamal Adams. The trade talk has been relatively quiet surrounding Adams this offseason, but just a few months ago there were some rumblings. As of late, the Jets have changed their tune about Adams. In fact, the team now wants Adams to be a Jet for life and the two sides are supposedly in extension conversations.

To me, it seems like Ryan Pace is going all in this season. I am not sure if he feels like his job is on the line or if the team’s window is closing faster than he would like, but he is being aggressive once again. The team is now low on salary cap room, but there are still a few routes to take via trades. If the team can entice the Jets enough, could you imagine this defensive roster?

Let me run it down for you. Upfront you would have one of the best pass rushers in the game on one side in Khalil Mack and a solid pass rusher in Robert Quinn on the other side. Now add a healthy Akiem Hicks next to Eddie Goldman who will eat up pass blockers. This is not all because you have a rising star in Roquan Smith and a healthy Danny Trevathan. Yikes, I would not want to be the opposing offense.

Wait, that is not all though. Even without a trade, Eddie Jackson should be lining up more at free safety — the position he has dominated the league prior to 2019. Then Kyle Fuller will be locking down the top receivers. That is a scary defense. If Pace can make a trade for Jamal Adams though. Watch out, league. The offense will not need to score any points to win.
