Another team the Chicago Bears could trade with is the Bengals

The Chicago Bears must call around and find a trade partner or two as they fall to 5-3 on the season. After a two-game losing streak, the Bears are actually on the bubble of being sellers rather than buyers. This team has seen some injuries to the offensive line over the last two weeks and honestly, the offensive line has not been good enough before the injuries anyway.

The Bengals have been rumored to be selling and more than one of their players could help drastically. Beyond the offensive line, the Chicago Bears offense has been very disappointing once again this season. Ryan Pace and the Bears must look to add some help in other areas too. I am not sure who is at fault here on why the team has not made a move yet. I fear that George McCaskey and Ted Phillips have handcuffed Pace from making any major moves.

I also fear that Pace and Matt Nagy cannot get out of their own way. Could their own egos be stopping them from making any major moves? Does the fear of a lower salary cap in 2021 hurt things too? There are so many unknowns, but what I do know is that other teams, teams like the Super Bowl Champion Chiefs, do not seem to be afraid to make major moves even with the unknown of 2021. The Chicago Bears are not being aggressive at all. This is a problem.

If the Bears want to make a serious run and compete for not only the playoffs but also the Super Bowl, they need to add some playmakers to this offense along with an offensive lineman. With the Bengals continuing their rebuild, the Bears should see who could be available.
