The Chicago Bears are well into the preseason now and are looking more and more ready for week one against the Green Bay Packers.

It should be a good year but there is no doubt that Ryan Poles is continuing to make upgrades for his team as they try to take big steps.

The team they just played in the preseason, the Indianapolis Colts, made big news on Monday as a report came out that they have given star running back Jonathan Taylor permission to seek a trade.

Could the Chicago Bears be a good fit for him? That is a debate on its own. If they did make a move like that, the trade could look something like this:

The Chicago Bears could just move a 1st and 6th-round pick for Jonathan Taylor.

The Chicago Bears would be taking a big risk making a trade like this. Running backs are depth players in the modern-day NFL and they don’t have much leverage when it comes to getting that second contract.

However, adding a stud like Jonathan Taylor might be something that the Bears consider if they think they need to upgrade that position.

He is younger than some of the other backs to hit the market over the last few months and that makes him a little bit more interesting to teams.

Giving up a first and a sixth is something that fans might not love but the Colts may be set on getting a lot for him if they are going to move him.

With a rookie QB coming in, they’d probably rather keep him but it doesn’t seem like they are going to be able to.
