The Chicago Bears could trade for cornerback Greedy Williams

The Cleveland Browns could be one team the Bears might want to reach out to and talk trades. Cleveland has former first-round pick Denzel Ward locked and loaded as one starting cornerback, while this year’s first-round pick Greg Newsome played very well in his rookie debut on Sunday.

That might end up leaving 2019 second-round pick Greedy Williams without much of a job, at least in terms of starting. On Sunday against the Chiefs, Williams played just 12 percent of the snaps on defense. He played a little special teams, but it appears as though Williams is locked in as the Browns’ third outside cornerback.

The former LSU Tiger is just 23 years old and likely not too happy with being an afterthought just two years removed from being the 46th player off the board. LSU’s history in providing the NFL with excellent defensive backs should be enough reason for the Bears to reach out about Williams’ availability.

The most attractive part of Williams’ game is the fact that he stands 6-foot-2, possessing tremendous size for an outside corner. There is no doubt he would come in and start from Day 1, or as soon as he picked up the playbook. If the Bears could find a way to land Williams, it would be a huge move.
