2. Buffalo Bills
The Chicago Bears and Buffalo Bills making a Chase Claypool trade makes sense.
The Buffalo Bills are one of the best teams in the NFL. After stumbling to the end of last season and in week one of this season, they have turned it around. A big part of it is their offense led by quarterback Josh Allen.
Allen is the second or third-best QB in the league right now and he shows no signs of slowing down any time soon. As long as he doesn’t turn the ball over, he has a chance to win literally any game over literally any team.
They have Stefon Diggs as their number one receiver which takes pressure off of other players playing the position on the offense. If they added someone like Chase Claypool, that may give Josh Allen another good weapon that might be a bit under the radar at this point
This situation would be different than the Chiefs for Claypool. For one, Allen is amazing but nobody is quite Patrick Mahomes. However, the Bills do have an established number one receiver so the targets would be fewer.
However, because a lot of the focus is on Diggs, there might be less coverage that he deals with. It is certainly something that he may like. The Bills are desperate to make a big postseason run this year so we’ll see if they consider something like this.
