3. What if the Chicago Bears could trade Kindle Vildor?

The Chicago Bears have Kindle Vildor buried on the depth chart. He was playing deep in the first preseason game with Michael Ojemudia across from him and Macon Clark in the slot. Needless to say, the Bears are about ready to move on from Vildor.

However, he may give them one last gift out the door. If the Chicago Bears could get even the latest conditional pick for Vildor, they should jump right on it. When you think about it, a cornerback-starved team is going to see a 26-year-old who has 22 career starts and think that it is worth taking a flyer on. Not enough teams have depth at cornerback.

Vildor only has one year left on his rookie salary deal, but as a former fifth-round pick he hardly has a serious salary for a team to digest. Vildor has another week or two to build up his stock in the way that Gipson did. Both cornerback and edge rusher are high-priority positions and teams always have needs. The Chicago Bears having extra bodies here could pay off with a lottery ticket or two.
