So far, this season has turned into a pleasant surprise for the Chicago Bears. At 3-2, the Bears are headed into a pretty daunting part of their schedule but have plenty of hope as they are starting to play with an edge.

That edge has come in the form of a nasty pass rush and an offense that keeps running the ball with dedication and consistency.

Seeing Justin Fields get crowned as the permanent starter for the remainder of the season was a reason to celebrate, and now that he’s arrived, it’s time to start focusing on being a competitive football team going forward.

In order to become a more competitive football team, though, the Bears could afford to make a few moves.

Should the Chicago Bears make any deals before the 2021 NFL trade deadline?

The 2021 NFL trade deadline passes on November 2, and the Bears have already made one move. Chicago brought in former Miami Dolphins return specialist and wide receiver Jakeem Grant last week, who has already proven to be better than what they had in the return game.

Aside from adding a return specialist, the Bears should definitely look at trading for some cornerback help. Maybe adding an offensive lineman would be a good idea as well, especially with the team being so thin in that area.

If Ryan Pace wanted to make any more moves before November 2, the following three would be the most ideal trades to make and would also set them up for a brighter future.
