10. The Chicago Bears should try and trade Eddie Goldman
This past season, we saw the rise of rookie Khyiris Tonga, who filled in for Eddie Goldman at times. Tonga, a seventh-round pick in 2021, did an admirable job. He looks to be a future stud at the position. Tonga is a truck up front and did a good job in run-stuffing as a rookie. He certainly has a bright career ahead.
Tonga may even make Eddie Goldman expendable. If the Bears could trade Goldman for a mid-round pick, they should do it. Every bit of draft capital is going to be important in the near future, especially because the Bears could use rookie contracts in a big way with their cap situation.
Goldman has been one of the more underrated nose tackles since entering the league back in 2015. However, if the Bears could save some cash and plug Tonga right in, they should definitely take that chance.
If they don’t trade Goldman, the Bears could cut him and still save $6 million against the cap in 2022. But, dealing him would save them even more, should they be able to find a taker.
