Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford is involved in some pretty hot trade rumors lately. What would a trade to the Chicago Bears look like?
The 2020 NFL offseason might just be a hectic one within the NFC North. After all, not a lot of us would have predicted the Chicago Bears finish just 8-8 a year after winning the division at 12-4. This is a Super Bowl roster, for the most part, which just needs a couple of holes filled.
One of those holes, obviously, stands at quarterback. Mitchell Trubisky has not proven he can be the guy to lead the Bears to a championship. If you are active on social media, you are well aware of many excuses made for Trubisky.
Essentially, Trubisky could certainly be that guy for the Bears if everything goes right around him — and I mean everything.
This offseason, there will be no shortage of intriguing quarterback options for the Bears, should they want to bring in another guy to compete with Trubisky. Interestingly enough, another option may have just appeared — within the division.
There are mixed reports right now, with some saying that the Lions are denying the trade rumors. However, it isn’t difficult to see why the Lions would try and trade Matthew Stafford.
Detroit holds the third overall pick in this year’s draft, and very well could end up with Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa at that spot.
Stafford is entering his 12th year after being the no. 1 overall pick back in the 2009 NFL Draft, and is coming off a season in which he played just eight games due to a broken bone in his back. If the Lions truly want to rebuild this roster around a young quarterback in hopes that it turns their franchise around, Tagovailoa would be the guy at no. 3 this year.
So, could the Bears entice the Lions with a competitive offer? What would that look like and what would happen after a trade? Let’s look at it.
