NFL Trade Rumors: Will Justin Fields Get Traded? NFL Insider Sees Value in Bears Making Move ASAP

The Chicago Bears head into this month’s 2024 NFL Draft boasting the first and ninth overall selections. It really is an ideal scenario for general manager Ryan Poles and Co. to be in after a very active offseason thus far.

After dealing Justin Fields to the Pittsburgh Steelers last month, it is already a given that Chicago will choose former USC quarterback Caleb Williams with the first choice in the draft.

The more important topic at hand is what Chicago intends to do with the ninth selection. To maybe work with Williams in the Windy City, it has already met with one of the best wide receivers in the draft class.

But there’s more than one scenario at work here. Chicago only has four more picks in the whole draft after the two choices made in the first nine. After making trades for Pro Bowl players Keenan Allen and Montez Sweat over the last several months, this is just the nature of the beast.


With the draft rapidly approaching, Chicago is one of the clubs being connected to trade-down situations, according to ESPN’s Field Yates. After the two deals discussed earlier in the draft, the plan would be to recover some selections.


Chicago now has a chance to get value from clubs that are in need of quarterbacks, as the first four picks in the draft are likely to be quarterbacks. Additionally, it can make teams that were chosen later in the first round fear and advance to take a signal caller as a reach.

Raiders in Las Vegas freak out over a quarterback: Prior to the NFL Draft, Vegas has already met with Bo Nix and Michael Penix Jr. This is obviously necessary in light of the Jimmy Garoppolo experiment’s failure. Would general manager Tom Telesco, in his first year, trade up from 13 to 9 in order to choose a quarterback in the second round of the draft? That is a plausible scenario. Chicago would most likely receive the Raiders’ third-round selection (77th overall) in exchange.

Team in need of wide receivers soars into the top 10: With the trade of Stefon Diggs to the Houston Texans, it is evident that Josh Allen, the quarterback for the Buffalo Bills, needs weapons. It will be difficult to locate 28th at this time. Rather, the Bills go all the way up to nine in order to sign Rome Odunze of Washington. Chicago would receive a huge haul, which would include a first-round pick in the 2025 NFL Draft, which the team could trade for many picks this season.


The Los Angeles Rams target the EDGE guy: Les Snead, the general manager of the Rams, is known to be always involved in trade talks. Considering their recent unexpected playoff run, that may be the case on draft night. Dallas Turner of Alabama may make it to nine, in which case Snead would likely climb from 19. A third-and fourth-round selection in the 2024 NFL Draft would probably result from this for the Bears.
