Trade No. 2: The Chicago Bears deal two prominent players and a pick

This offseason, the Falcons signed free agent running back Mike Davis to come in and be their starter. Many would have assumed they would address the position in the draft as well, but the Falcons sent a clear message to Davis that he was their guy after not drafting a running back.

Behind Davis, the Falcons don’t have much. That’s why this trade would be an intriguing one. Davis proved he could handle the load last year in Carolina, but if Atlanta added one more dynamic player to the backfield, Davis would stay fresh all year long.

The Falcons get Tarik Cohen in this deal, who is coming off an ACL tear he suffered early in the 2020 season. He’ll add another element to the offense as well as provide special teams prowess for Atlanta.

Also in this deal, the Falcons get Danny Trevathan. This is mostly to help aid the Bears in taking on Jones’ cap hit, but also because the Falcons could use a couple more pieces on defense.

Although there were talks of the Falcons getting offers including a first-round pick, I wonder if a couple of players and a second-rounder wouldn’t be enough to tempt them. If not these two players, maybe this final deal would grab their attention.
