The Chicago Bears are getting ready to shop the first overall pick around as they try to improve their chances at a brighter future.
With the fact that they have their franchise quarterback in place and there is no generational-type player at another position, there is no reason to keep the pick without trying to get a haul for it.
Chicago also has the most cap space of any team in the National Football League. That might allow them to add some pieces that help them develop into a much better organization going forward.
It would be a good idea for them to consider adding a receiver that can help them develop Justin Fields who showed in 2023 that he has the potential to be a fantastic player in this league. The problem is a lot of his electricity came in his run game but his passing left a lot to be desired.
The Chicago Bears need help in the wide receiver room going into 2023.
The Bears made a trade to add Chase Claypool but he wasn’t very effective. He gets a pass because Fields wasn’t where he needs to be in his passing game but 2023 will need to see some growth from both of them.
Darnell Mooney is also there but he needs some help. In an ideal world, Mooney would be a three and Claypool would be a four. It might be hard to land a one or a two but there are plenty of them out there.
