Chicago Bears & Atlanta Falcons Hypothetical Trade

This certainly isn't something that Chicago fans have thought about but in this scenario, they would likely be retaining quarterback Justin Fields. They would be all-in on the 24-year-old while adding a dynamic difference-maker in the backfield. Chicago is also gaining more draft capital for the future.

Robinson was the No. 8 overall in the 2023 NFL Draft by Atlanta. He immediately became one of the most electric playmakers when he stepped on the field. The Texas product has elite acceleration and has start/stop ability to evade defenders in the open field.

He also has sticky hands as a pass-catcher coming out of the backfield. In his rookie year, Robinson had 976 rushing yards, 487 receiving yards, and eight total touchdowns. A potential offense that features Fields, Robinson, and D.J. Moore could be electric.

Additionally, Chicago has the draft capital to continuously add talent over the next three drafts. Who knows if this trade will happen but you could see the thought process behind it.
