Trade Number 2: Darnell Mooney gets dealt to the Tennessee Titans

At one point, I figured the Bears would keep one of Chase Claypool or Darnell Mooney. That quickly turned into, "Get Claypool the heck out of town, no matter the price."

But now, the Bears are looking at a future offseason with plenty of money to spend and some valuable draft capital. Mooney has rarely been used this year, and the team might even move on from Justin Fields as we've heard plenty of outlets say. At this stage, they could try and deal Mooney for a mid-round pick and then rebuild the wide receiver room around D.J. Moore and Tyler Scott.

One team that could use another wideout is the Tennessee Titans. DeAndre Hopkins won't be around very long, but they are hoping former first-round pick Treylon Burks can develop into their alpha instead. From there, Tennessee still needs plenty of help.

If Burks develops into the guy they want him to become, then adding a field-stretcher like Mooney could be valuable. Mooney is still just 25 years old (going on 26 before the end of the month). He may not be worth what he was worth earlier in his career, but a fourth rounder would certainly be a fair return for Chicago. That would give them three fourth-round picks in next year's draft.
