Here is where it gets even more crazy for the Bears. After already trading star pass rusher Khalil Mack to the Los Angeles Chargers, the team decides to trade Robert Quinn as well, committing even more so to this rebuild.

The Bears send Quinn, a 2022 fifth-rounder and a 2023 seventh-round pick to the New York Giants in exchange for a later fifth-rounder and a second-round pick this year.

This gives the Bears another high pick in this year’s draft to add pieces immediately. And they do so by adding yet another wide receiver, loading up their corps.

George Pickens never really had the chance to show the world what he could do as the true number one wideout for Georgia. He was injured last spring and missed the majority of the 2021 season, yet still declared for the draft.

The 6-foot-3 wideout could still become a true number one or two option in the NFL, kind of like a Tee Higgins type. With Pickens and London in the fold, Fields now has a young, dangerous trio at wide receiver to work with for years to come.
