3. Philadelphia Eagles
The Chicago Bears could think about sending Chase Claypool back east.
The Chicago Bears may rather make trades with the AFC but they shouldn’t worry about sending anyone to an NFC right now. Even if the Bears did everything right, which you know they won’t, they are still 4 years behind the Philadelphia Eagles.
Trading Chase Claypool to the Eagles may be a smart idea for Ryan Poles and his staff. He has already spent time playing for an NFL team in Pennsylvania so why not head to the other one? This one has a chance to be in the Super Bowl for the second straight year.
Like the Bills and unlike the Chiefs, the Eagles have an established star number-one receiver. For them, it’s AJ Brown. A guy like that can make it easier in terms of coverage for the other receivers on the team. Claypool would get that and a chance to be in the playoffs if he went to the Eagles.
After losing the Super Bowl to those Chiefs last year, they might be all in on trying to do it again but with a different result in the end. Taking a chance on an unhappy but talented receiver could be an option. They would love to add a player like him if he was willing.
The Bears are not obligated to do anything with Claypool just because he doesn’t like his situation. They gave up a 2nd round pick to get him from Pittsburgh so they may still see him as valuable for that reason. However, it is time to cut your losses and move on.
