Like Andy Dalton, the Chicago Bears should look to trade Nick Foles

I won’t go into too much detail here since Nick Foles has not played for Chicago in 2021. The main point to see here is that Foles was not the problem with the offense in 2020. Matt Nagy’s offense is broken and other teams around the NFL can see it. I am surprised that Nick Foles is still on the roster, but he caused problems in the offseason in regards to trades. It’s possible he still might, but why at this point?

The same reason that a team might trade for Andy Dalton is the same reason why a team might trade for Nick Foles. Chicago cannot trade both of them, but moving one of them needs to be a priority. Having three quarterbacks on the roster is a waste. If trading Anthony Miller to get a fifth-round pick in exchange for a seventh-rounder was an option, then it’s possible to gain a sixth-rounder for the likes of Foles.

Moving Nick Foles for a late-round draft pick does not seem like a big return, but at this point, gaining a late-round pick while moving a player who is not contributing on the field is a great return in value.

The Chicago Bears could also shop these three notable mentions listed below. Finding someone to trade for Jimmy Graham is not likely, but he’s clearly not being utilized. Danny Trevathan lost his starting spot due to injury and the high-end play of Alec Ogletree.

Robert Quinn has been dominant and if the team loses one or both of the next two games, then selling off Quinn could honestly be the best option behind Allen Robinson for trade value. The problem moving Quinn will be his contract.
