4. Eddie Jackson, S

The next player the Bears could look to part with is safety Eddie Jackson. After he took a step backward a couple years ago, he was definitely someone that fans wanted to see the team trade. After he received his big contract extension, his effort went down the drain.

But, last year began a bounce-back for Jackson. And this year, he's played fairly well so far. Aside from a couple of notable plays where there was a lapse in coverage, Jackson has graded out pretty well if you ask Pro Football Focus (72.7 overall).

Jackson has one year left on his contract and could absolutely help a contender looking for some depth atop their secondary. Historically, he has been a ball hawk and he's displayed some strong leadership skills within the locker room.

I would guess the Bears may be able to get a fourth or fifth-round pick in exchange for Jackson, if not a pair of later picks, if they were to try and trade him.
