The Chicago Bears could trade a pair of picks for DK Metcalf

First up, the Bears would need to decide which of the Seahawks receivers they want to pursue. If they choose the younger Metcalf, they’d be inheriting a rookie contract of a guy who will need to get paid sooner or later.

Metcalf is only 24 years old and, in his first three seasons, has amassed over 3,100 receiving yards and 29 receiving touchdowns. Next offseason, the Bears would need to work out an extension — and it’ll be a pricy one.

In this deal, the Bears would be sending Seattle their second rounder this year, essentially making Metcalf their second-round pick. That seems more than fair.

Next year, the Seahawks would get the Bears’ fourth rounder as well. But, the Bears would at least get Seattle’s seventh-round pick in this year’s draft also. That way, Poles still has five picks in the draft.

Metcalf would certainly help Fields. He’s a huge, strong target who can also be a deep threat on top of doing a bit more than he was pegged for out of college. Metcalf and Mooney would immediately give the Bears a speedy, threatening duo at receiver.
