Trade Number 2: The Chicago Bears help the Indianapolis Colts get their guy
Since Andrew Luck retired, the Indianapolis Colts haven’t been able to get the quarterback position right. They’ve tried Jacoby Brissett, Philip Rivers, Carson Wentz and even Sam Ehlinger for a bit. None of them have come close to what Luck meant to the franchise, so this coming year might be the year they give up on the veteran route and go all-in.
Obviously the Colts would be targeting Stroud or Young, here, to pair with the electric Jonathan Taylor in the back field. The Colts already have some strong, young receivers in Michael Pittman Jr., Alec Pierce and Parris Campbell. Adding a franchise quarterback could take them from bottom of the Barrell to the top in a hurry.
For Chicago, in this instance, they very well could still come away with a top tier receiver like Jaxson Smith-Njigba, Jordan Addison or Quentin Johnston. Additionally, edge rusher could still be very deep at the number nine pick. Quite frankly, the Bears would have a lot of great options at nine overall and would also be adding a third rounder this draft, plus a first and second next draft.
