Would a trade for Andre Dillard make sense for the Chicago Bears?

How about Ian Cunningham calling up his former team to help negotiate a trade for Andre Dillard? Cunningham was there when Dillard was drafted in the first round in 2019. He fits the Ryan Poles build that clearly, Cunningham covets also — 6’5″ and 315 pounds.

Dillard has been demoted for Jordan Mailata — a seventh-round draft pick. Heading into his third season with Philadelphia, rumors are swirling that Dillard could be a surprise cut candidate or at least a trade piece. I’m not sold on the fact that the Eagles would just cut Dillard at this point — he adds solid depth to a team pushing for a playoff birth and Super Bowl appearance. That said, a trade could be more in the realm of possibilities.

I am not as high on Dillard as I am on Isaiah Wynn, but the connection to Cunningham could come into play here. Dillard could easily push for a starting spot here in Chicago and maybe a fresh start with a familiar face is what he needs. What would Ryan Poles give up for a 2019 first-round draft pick who is nearly 27 years old? Anything more than a fourth-rounder seems like too much for me.

The big question Ryan Poles and Chicago Bears fans need to ask is will any of these three players help move the needle forward towards a future Super Bowl run? Isaiah Wynn is a maybe answer for me while Denzel Mims is a resounding no. Dillard is intriguing, but the price has to be just right for me to even consider giving up draft capital for him.
