Trade 3: The Chicago Bears get creative with picks and a sign-and-trade
In this last trade scenario, the Bears end up with that lone no. 2 overall pick again. However, this time, Pace gets a bit more creative with his negotiations.
Allen Robinson doesn’t seem too happy about being in Chicago after not receiving an extension. If Robinson’s camp wants out, the Bears could end up giving him the franchise tag which could create a sour situation.
In this instance, the Bears execute a sign-and-trade with Robinson and the Jets. Chicago also gives up their no. 20 pick, a first-round pick next year and a third-rounder next year.
What will the Bears do without Allen Robinson? Well, they’ll at least have some additional picks to find a replacement to pair with Darnell Mooney. Offensively, they’ll be young. That’s for sure.
Look at it this way: the Bears could end up with an offense featuring Fields, David Montgomery, Mooney and possibly someone like Rondale Moore, Terrace Marshall or Amon-Ra St. Brown. This year’s receiving class is extremely deep, so keeping the picks for this year is an enormous victory. The Jets already have an asinine amount of draft capital for 2021, so this way they’ll now have built up picks for two straight drafts.
The Jets, meanwhile, get their true no. 1 wideout they’ve lacked since one standout year from former Bear Brandon Marshall.
