2. Trade for Eagles EDGE Josh Sweat

The Philadelphia Eagles may have multiple interesting pass rushers on the trade market this offseason, and the Bears should be interested at the right price.

Philadelphia has apparently given Haason Reddick permission to seek a trade. So what if that doesn't end up happening? Would they keep him? Would they eventually cut him? Would they shop around Josh Sweat on the trade market?

Maybe not, but the Eagles have former first-round pick Nolan Smith on the roster as well as Haason Reddick, and they've also just brought in pass rush specialist Bryce Huff from the New York Jets on a big-money deal this offseason. Someone's got to be the odd man out, and while it feels likely it will be Reddick, perhaps the Eagles would flip Sweat even in the event they are able to trade Reddick.

It would pave the way for Huff and Smith to take over as their top edge guys.

Having Josh Sweat in Chicago would give the Bears a pair of Sweats off the edge giving quarterbacks nightmares week after week.
