Over the course of free agency thus far, first-year Chicago Bears general manager Ryan Poles has taken his time in turning over this roster.

The first big move came with a bang, as he made the crucial, tough decision to trade pass rusher Khalil Mack to what has become an AFC powerhouse in the Los Angeles Chargers.

Other than trading Mack, Poles has taken things slow. One of the more recent moves saw the Bears ink backup quarterback Trevor Siemian to a 2-year deal just a couple of days ago.

In the coming hours, following the Siemian signing, rumors and reports surfaced all over in regards to the Bears now looking to trade veteran Nick Foles — also known as a Ryan Pace blunder.

Ryan Poles and the Chicago Bears have more than just the logical options in possibly trading Nick Foles.

If Siemian was signed to a standard 1-year, prove-it type of deal, none of this conversation would be happening. However, it’s interesting to note that Siemian’s deal is for two years and worth a base of $4 million and a maximum of $5 million.

Without a doubt, Foles’ time in Chicago is coming to an end. The Bears could choose to designate Foles as a post-June 1st cut and save $3 million. But, Poles would obviously rather add to their draft capital this year.

The Bears have six draft picks, and while they won’t get much for Foles, Chicago would love to have the standard number of picks in this upcoming draft with seven. Trading Foles now becomes somewhat of a priority, a challenge, and something which would make fans thrilled with their team’s new general manager.

If Poles explored the following three trade scenarios, the Bears could come away satisfied.
