The Chicago Bears still have a need at safety, and with Jamal Adams on the trade block, what would they have to give up to get him?
The Chicago Bears are always looking to add playmakers on defense. Jamal Adams, a top safety in the league, has been rumored to be a potential trade candidate ever since the trade deadline of last season. He is due for a big payday soon, and the Jets have not offered him anything to his liking. He has requested a trade from New York, and with that said, the Bears could be a great team for him to land.
Adams is a two-time Pro-Bowler and a two-time All-Pro. He has been the x-factor in the Jets secondary for a few years now and has solidified himself as a top safety in the game. He is a natural strong safety, a position the Bears still can use an upgrade for. Trading for Adams will not be easy, but the Bears could consider pulling the trigger. Imagine Eddie Jackson and Jamal Adams in the defensive backfield. Opposing offenses would have to make some perfect throws or those two will make them pay.
At the end of the day, the question is what will it cost the Bears to get Adams. The Bears gave up a plethora of draft picks for Khalil Mack. Trading for Adams might take a similar package, but maybe not quite as much. The Bears do not have a lot of cap space, so trading for Adams means they would have to create room to give him an extension. Still, Ryan Pace could work some magic and bring in Adams to add to this monstrous defense. These are some trade packages that could work to bring him to Chicago.
