This week, one of the more notable topics revolving around the Chicago Bears has been the lack of effort from wide receiver Chase Claypool in Week 1 against the Green Bay Packers.
Head coach Matt Eberflus acknowledged that it was even a possibility for Claypool to be inactive in Week 2 due to his showing last weekend. This situation has some Bears fans wondering if the team should simply admit failure on this trade and cut ties.
Should the Bears wind up trading Claypool before the trade deadline this season, there are a few teams that might make sense which are also a bit under the radar. Let's dig into these possible suitors.
Trade Destination No. 1: The Tennessee Titans
This offseason, the Tennessee Titans went out and signed veteran DeAndre Hopkins to be their number one target in the passing game. With an underrated defense and Derrick Henry still on offense, the Titans aren't far from competing for the AFC South crown.
Already though, Hopkins is on the injury report with an ankle. His status is still unclear for Week 2.
Beyond Hopkins, the Titans have second-year pro Treylon Burks, who has also had his share of injury concerns. Other than those two, though, the Titans are fairly thin at wide receiver. Nick Westbrook-Ikhine is next on the depth chart, just for example.
Adding Claypool would make him an easy WR3, if not a WR2 for this offense.
