At 2-3, the Chicago Bears are right about where many thought they would be during a rebuilding year.

With a new head coach, Matt Eberflus, and a new general manager, Ryan Poles, this was always going to be a tougher year in terms of wins and losses. However, just this last week, we finally saw some significant progress in Justin Fields and his development.

Having plenty of cap room next year and a full load of draft capital, the Bears should feel good about their future and building around Fields.

Other teams, though, don’t have that same luxury. The Carolina Panthers, for example, just fired head coach Matt Rhule and now appear to be launching a full-on rebuild of their own.

The Chicago Bears are in a position to be able to engage in trade talks with the Carolina Panthers.

With the Panthers likely headed for a top draft pick and being in position to select either C.J. Stroud or Bryce Young, it’s very likely they try and part with some of their veterans.

One of those veterans who could be traded is wideout D.J. Moore, whom the Panthers have already extended but have an “out” after the 2023 season. Now, there are rumors of the Panthers taking calls on guys like Moore, among others.

The Bears desperately need a true number one wide receiver, and Moore has the talent to be exactly that. At only 25 years old and coming off three-straight 1,000-yard seasons, Moore has plenty of football ahead of him and would give the Bears a legitimate number one option on the outside, or in the slot. He is an extremely versatile weapon with lots of speed and excellent strength at the point of catch.

With Darnell Mooney in place, adding a wideout like Moore would give Fields a one-two punch that Chicago has been longing for this year. The myriad of random wide receivers has proven to be ineffective in establishing any passing threat, as fans have seen.

Should the Bears engage in trade talks regarding Moore, one of the following packages just might get a deal done.
