The Chicago Bears could work a trade with the Buffalo Bills

This one might hurt the hearts of Bears fans, but it is certainly feasible and reasonable. David Montgomery might be the hardest working player on the Bears, and other than Fields, could be the most loved. But, running backs are expendable and the Bears will have to decide whether to pay Montgomery next year. As many other backs have proven, teams don’t generally benefit from paying the position.

For that reason, sending Montgomery to a team that would be thrilled with his services makes sense. The Buffalo Bills are just a running back away from having maybe the most potent offense in the league, and getting Montgomery would put them over the top.

In exchange for Montgomery and the No. 150 pick, the Bears get a third rounder coming at No. 89 and a fourth-rounder coming at No. 130. That is some serious draft capital coming back to the Bears in this deal, and finding another running back to pair with Khalil Herbert won’t be difficult.

Some players available near pick 89 could be Florida running back Dameon Pierce, Alabama wide receiver John Metchie III, Minnesota offensive tackle Daniel Faalele or Chattanooga guard Cole Strange.

Later at pick 130, the Bears could find huge value with guys like Alabama running back Brian Robinson, UTSA cornerback Tariq Woolen, South Dakota State running back Pierre Strong Jr. or Appalachian State linebacker D’Marco Jackson.
