If this Chicago Bears offseason was supposed to be about surrounding second-year quarterback Justin Fields with talent and protection, then first-year general manager Ryan Poles has failed to this point.

It is easier to not be as upset if you take the entire picture into consideration, as the assumed plan has been for Poles to go all-in on the 2023 offseason in order to rebuild this roster the right way.

But, one still has to wonder why the Bears haven’t added any notorious playmaker to their offensive group. The Bears need help at wide receiver, and in a big way. Fortunately, Chicago may have a golden opportunity in front of them.

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel has officially removed all team-related photos from his social media and has unfollowed the 49ers account in quite the new-age statement. Let the rumors begin.

If Deebo Samuel is even considered to be available via trade, the Chicago Bears must make a move

According to multiple reports, Samuel also plans to skip on-field offseason work with his teammates in an effort to land a new contract.

For a team like the Bears, who have Darnell Mooney as their current number one receiver, Samuel makes a ton of sense.

Samuel is the type of weapon the Bears could use in a variety of ways, as evidenced by his ability to act as both a receiver and running back last season. For a young quarterback like Fields, Samuel would make things a whole lot easier on him. Being able to get him the ball quickly and let him do the rest would take an immense amount of pressure off Fields.

The question still remains, though, is Samuel officially available via trade? At this point, probably not. However, things seem to be headed in the wrong direction.

If this situation continues to get messier leading up to the draft, general manager John Lynch could opt to make a move. Lynch has never been shy about making a trade, so how about one of the following deals to send Samuel to Chicago?
