This past Monday night, the Chicago Bears gave fans a glimmer of hope for the remainder of the 2022 season.

For the first six weeks, the offense had been stagnant. Second-year quarterback Justin Fields struggled to stay upright, but also to see the field and make the correct decisions. But, Fields did make enough of those “wow” plays to keep hope alive in his development.

Then, Monday Night Football in Foxboro happened. In a game where the Bears weren’t given a chance, Matt Eberflus’ team went out and dominated the New England Patriots in every aspect of the game.

Now at 3-4, the Bears are no where near being out of contention for a playoff berth — and yes, it seems crazy to be talking about the playoffs right now. But, even if the Bears aren’t a playoff team, they are clearly a team that chooses to compete and ensure they’re in every game. They’re a team that feels as though they’ve garnered some momentum.

With that said, maybe it’s worth the Bears being buyers at this year’s NFL trade deadline.

The Chicago Bears have already been active in the NFL trade market, but after selling, Ryan Poles should also look to buy.

The Bears traded the guy who, just last season, set the single-season franchise sack record. Robert Quinn was shipped off to the Philadelphia Eagles for a fourth-round pick earlier in the week — a trade that made a lot of sense for both sides.

Dominique Robinson and Trevis Gipson are the future of the position, and Quinn hadn’t done much yet. This was a victory for the Bears.

On the flip side, Poles should now be looking to add talent if he can do so. There are plenty of teams, right now, who are clearly going to trade some key names.

If the Bears want to add talent at the glaring holes within their roster, and also allow their quarterback to continue developing the right way, Poles needs to analyze the market in order to find some potential bargains.

The following three players would be well-worth the Bears going after, so long as they can land them for the right price.
