Could the Chicago Bears add another great wide receiver?

A.J. Green, WR – Cincinnati Bengals

A.J. Green was once a top-five receiver in the NFL. Now, after many injuries and age set in, he is not quite as good. Yet, he is still a super talented receiver who happens to be on a rebuilding team and an expiring contract. This is where the Bears can come in.

It seems as if the Bengals are in a situation that is ultimately going to end up with the not being able to pay Green, as he will require decent money. This means they should trade him. Now, the Bears have leverage in their negotiations with Cincinnati and should be able to get him for a late-round pick or two.

That would be a huge steal for the Bears, who then can make a playoff push with a receiver core consisting of Green, Allen Robinson, Anthony Miller, Ted Ginn, and Darnell Mooney. This would provide great comfort for whoever the QB is, knowing they have such solid options to throw to.

I think that trading for Green if the offense needs a spark would be a super good move because it is low risk and high reward. They are not giving up much, and at the same time, they are getting a talented player. This is like the Emmanuel Sanders situation from last year, where he was traded to the San Francisco 49ers. The only problem is there might be other teams bidding for his services, so that might be something to worry about.

Still, the Bears could use another stud receiver to add to the offensive firepower. He might be the player needed to put a spark in this offense and help push toward the playoffs. Most likely he would not be extended, but it won’t be like they gave up a lot for him.

The Bears have plenty of talent on their roster and are not in any place where they must make a trade. Still, they could definitely use a piece or two to fill out the roster, and any of these players would be a good get. The Bears have not been busy at the deadline the last few years, but with the pressure higher than ever, this might be the year they do.
