The Chicago Bears will have a new-look wide receiver room next offseason as the unit will be led by DJ Moore and newly acquired Pro Bowl wide receiver Keenan Allen.

There is also a chance that the Bears will add to that position group with the ninth overall selection in the 2024 NFL Draft.

Recent speculation has suggested that the Bears are targeting a wide receiver with their second pick in the first round as a trade-up for Marvin Harrison Jr or selecting Rome Odunze at No. 9 has been leading many conversations over the course of the past week.

It's kind of wild to think that there is a strong chance that the team could be entering the 2024 season with one of the best wide receiver groups in all of football.

The reason it is so wild to believe that is because this is the same team that routinely trotted out Equanimeous St. Brown as a wide receiver that played a role on offense. While St. Brown does have value as a blocking receiver, he has little value as a playmaking option for any offense.

St. Brown's contract with the Bears ended after the 2023 season and there will be no return as he has signed a deal with the New Orleans Saints.

Equanimeous St. Brown will no longer be trolled by his brother for playing with the Chicago Bears.

The only real highlight that St. Brown has during his time with the Bears is the fact that it was his podcast in February where it became clear that Justin Fields was not returning. On The St. Brown Brothers Podcast, Fields revealed that he was no longer following the Bears on Instagram because he wanted to get away from the speculation regarding his future with the team.
