Chicago Bears: 5 Landing spots for Khalil Mack if the Bears trade him
By Braden Fogal
The Chicago Bears trade Khalil Mack to the New York Giants.
The Chicago Bears could deal Khalil Mack to the New York Giants, a team name that certainly fits the pass-rushers stature. The Giants have Leonard Williams hitting the free-agent market, so this could possibly be a situation like the trade with Dallas where the New York franchise tags Williams and includes him in a trade for Mack.
This trade would include the Giants first-round pick that sits in the middle of the 2021 draft right now. With this trade, Chicago could add a solid replacement piece on the defensive line and build through the draft with that extra pick. If the Bears could snag an often injured, but talented Sterling Shepard at the wide receiver in this trade, then I like the return on this one. I like Darius Slayton better in that scenario if the Bears could swing him instead.
On the Giants side, head coach Joe Judge has had success with his new club on the defensive side of the ball, mostly. New York went into Week 14 against the Arizona Cardinals riding a four-game winning streak and seems to have the right coaches in place to build towards a future with the solid defensive unit they already possess. Defensive coordinator Patrick Graham joined the team after serving with the Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots as a linebackers and defensive line coach, making Mack a dream scenario for a team with Saquon Barkley on the offense.
I think this trade helps both sides in the present and future.
