Trade Number 1 for the Chicago Bears to acquire Terry McLaurin

Wide receiver trades have been wild as of late. We recently saw the Green Bay Packers trade All-Pro Davante Adams to the Las Vegas Raiders in exchange for a first and second-round pick. That price seems a little light for a guy who could be argued as the top receiver in football and at the peak of his game.

Then, Tyreek Hill went to the Miami Dolphins in exchange for a first, second, and fourth-rounder this year, plus a fourth and sixth-rounder next year. That’s more like the value we would have expected for Adams. Nevertheless, here is where the Bar should start for a guy like McLaurin, who is 26 years old with a pair of 1,000-yard seasons in his first three campaigns.

In this deal, the Bears would send only one pick in this year’s draft to the Commanders, and it comes in the second round at pick No. 48 overall. The Bears would also send a 2023 second-rounder and 2024 third-rounder to Washington.

In addition, Washington would get former second-round pick, tight end Cole Kmet from the Bears. Washington has Logan Thomas, coming off a tough year due to injury, and at 30 years old. Kmet would provide a younger option at the position and, maybe, a fresh start would help Kmet finally break out.

Along with McLaurin, the Bears get a fifth-round pick In 2023.
