Chicago Bears: 3 Potential trade targets with the Atlanta Falcons
By Cody Young
The Chicago Bears are in need of a receiver and this may be a route they take.
This may be the most unrealistic of all the trades I have listed but at the very least, Atlanta should be listening to offers for Ridley. He is a stud WR and fans of the team may not want to see him go. However, he may bring back the most value from any other player on the team.
I’m sure some people were expecting to see Julio Jones and Matt Ryan in this article but honestly, the contracts those two players have makes it pretty hard to trade them, Ryan specifically. Ridley is having a great 2020 and is still on his rookie deal, which makes his contract very moveable.
Similar to Matthews earlier, Ridley will command a hefty price that the Bears may, or may not be willing to pay for. With Allen Robinson’s future with the Bears up in the air currently, Chicago is going to need someone to fill that role.
Ridley would be a great fit and is someone you can rely on to produce right away which the Bears need. Even with Robinson on the team, one of the biggest holes for Chicago is at WR. I think Mooney is well on his way to being a quality player but they still need more.
The Chicago Bears are in the thick of things in the NFC North, and the Packers have already been rumored to be adding pieces at the deadline. Time will tell if Green Bay decides to add anything but they and the Bears find themselves on a similar playing field, and one of these trades could put them over the hump.
