2. The Chicago Bears trade the number 1 pick for a package built around Davante Adams

Here’s the thing about the Raiders offseason: Davante Adams just may want out after one year with the team. It’s clear the Raiders are moving on from Derek Carr, which is bound to rub Adams the wrong way. These are two former college teammates who are best friends, and the way Las Vegas is treating Carr at the moment is not going to sit well with Adams.

What better way to make Adams happy than to send him back to the NFC North where he’d get a chance to play the Packers twice a year? Sure, he’s 30 years old. But, Adams is still at the top of his game. He has plenty of years left in him, and would make Justin Fields quite happy. Here’s the trade.

The Bears get Adams, plus the first-round swap this year of course. The Raiders also give up their second rounder and a fifth rounder this year. Plus, next year they give up a first-round and third-round selection.

To recap, that’s: Davante Adams, two firsts, a second, a third and a fifth. Would that be enough? Maybe.

The Bears would finally have their alpha wide receiver, with an opportunity to address a position like offensive or defensive line with the seventh overall pick. Then, in Round 2 this year, they could do the same thing. It’s a tempting offer.
