The Bears seem to have done very well. Getting DJ Moore for Justin Fields is a very nice pick up.


AGoodTalkSpoiled

Big fan of this move for the bears. Just tons of assets and as someone else pointed out, could be picking #1 AGAIN next year just with Carolinas pick. Possible if fields turns out to not be the answer they take Caleb. Just overall a competent move that is nice and refreshing. Not for Carolina though


NickMullensGayDad

Panthers have to go through the gauntlet of Dennis Allen, Todd Bowles, and Arthur Smith. They’re probably division favorites


backyardfootball

I think Arthur Smith is a good coach. Has dragged a bottom 5 roster to almost .500 twice. Definitely the most logical spot for Lamar


AGoodTalkSpoiled

That’s awful...don’t know enough about those teams to say you’re wrong. And I’m very happy to not know much about those teams.


mysterymaninurhome

It really depends on how their QB performs. They also now don’t have any receivers. They could win the division but they also could suck


NickMullensGayDad

They could suck and win the division by 2 games. This division is dreadful


punk27

They'll be better than Tampa at least.


DrBigChicken

What? Carolina’s roster is way too good. They’ll have to draft someone who is a complete negative to get first pick. Imo if they draft a guy as good as Gardner Minshew, lowish bar, they’re a playoff team


AGoodTalkSpoiled

Where is their roster good? Especially now without dj. I am open to being wrong. But their roster seems to me real bad and getting worse. Again....I may be flat wrong.


DrBigChicken

OLine, dline, corner I would call legitimate strengths. Qb if that hits, which that’s a decent chance at first overall Wr was a strength, without dj moore it’s more average but free agency and draft can change that Lb safety both average to above Rb they could use a guy. Te they could use a stud. That’s how I see their roster but their bones are pretty good. I think they’re a playoff team with Bryce Young or Cj Stroud year one. If they go for a more project guy maybe not


Batiatus07

Their WRs are maybe the worst in the league without Moore


DrBigChicken

I see that position changing but I hear you, losing their best receiver is a huge hit


Batiatus07

Do they have enough draft assets to get any decent wr prospects?


AGoodTalkSpoiled

Well....if those units are good it’s a good foundation. But the margin for error is very slim. Taking your statements as is, unless something changes and the qb they draft is ready to play, they are operating with issues at qb, rb, te and wrs. It’s nice to have line strength but that has to complement offense not be the only thing. Sure I could see a wide range of outcomes. I don’t think them picking #1 is outside the realm of possibility though...but maybe 6 wins isn’t either.


OmegaAtrocity

I think picking 1 is pretty much out of the realm of possibility honestly, unless there are tons of brutal injuries or something like that. I'm not sure how the qb play could be worse than it was last year, the motley crew of Mayfield, pj walker, and darnold was hell to watch. Panthers defense is quite good, and the biggest factor not mentioned yet is coaching. Matt Rhule is one of the worst coaches to every grace an NFL sideline straight up, and Wilks was your run of the mill defensive conservative as shit old school guy. Not trying to say Reich is gonna be top 5 in league or anything, but just average is a huge huge improvement. All that said I could see it being a top 10ish pick if it doesnt work out. We're helped out by the fact that our division is horrendous, we damn near won it this year.


redditburner24

This feels like one of those 6 quarters for a dollar trades. The Panthers GM should’ve said they aren’t including DJ Moore and got into a staring contest with the Bears GM.


93LEAFS

Then Indy or Houston likely tops Carolina's offer.


binger5

Houston isn't trading up a single spot.


93LEAFS

teams have traded up a single spot to secure their QB again if they felt someone was on the verge of snaking them


binger5

I'm sure it has happened before, but there are 2 great and 1 decent QBs in this draft. Young is probably the correct first pick, but there are worries about his size.


93LEAFS

it's rare that a scouting staff view two QBs as completely equal, and if they believe someone is the guy, they will move up to get him since its such a foundational piece. All, I was saying is the Bears likely had multiple options to entertain offers from other teams if Carolina didn't meet the asking price. It's not like they were bidding against themselves.


hooskies

Not for more than the panthers were offering


mkay0

Panthers weren’t in a staring contest. They were one of 3-4 teams in the mix for that pick and needed to drop real compensation to get it. It will be remembered as a hall of fame trade if Young (or Stroud, I guess) becomes a franchise guy.


Gaius_Octavius_

Feels like Moore is at least worth a mid 1st. They could have not given up the extra 2nd rounder in 24 and it would still be a good trade.


deemerritt

As a panthers fan y'all are overrating Moore pretty heavily. He will be the best WR Fields has had but you kind of have to scheme him open and he is maybe the 20th best WR in the nfl.


Gaius_Octavius_

I don't know about the scheme him open part (don't watch him enough) but I think 15-25th best WR in the NFL is fair. That feels like a low 1st/high 2nd to me depending on age, contract, etc.


deemerritt

I don't think any team in the nfl would have given us a 2025 first for Moore and we saved our 2025 first by throwing him in.


Gaius_Octavius_

If he saved you a 25 1st, that is a good swap. Of course, if you were giving up #9, 2024, 2025 + two 2nds for #1, that would be a crazy overpay too IMO.


luvdadrafts

One of those 2s is like the 61st pick, basically a 3rd rounder. The trade honestly seems about what you’d expect for the amount traded up


sevaiper

It’s a good deal for the Bears in a year with no consensus #1 pick.


deemerritt

It's the cost of doing business with no leverage. It's our fault we are in this spot


Gaius_Octavius_

The truth is if Stroud hits, no one will care how much he costs. A true franchise QB is worth 10 first round picks because if you don't have one you spend every year chasing one.


deemerritt

The in between years for Jake Delhomme, Cam Newton and whoever we take number 1 have truly tested my fandom


Gaius_Octavius_

There is nothing in sports like having a starting QB you actually trust. It makes every game good. Because even when you are losing, you still believe you can win. And losses don't stick with you because, you know "We got them next week…" When your QB sucks, it is the worst. I always assume they will find a way to lose games even when they are winning. You are a nervous wreck the whole time and makes hard to even enjoy the good weeks.


Batmanbettermarvel18

Man maybe I’ve been drinking too much D.J Moore juice but I’ve always said get that man a good throwing qb and he’s a top ten talent at the position. Dude is elite at everything a wr needs to be imo, also did I mention still young?


jarvistheconquerer

He’s not a very good route runner. Great against zone, at the point of the catch, and is a yac machine though.


Batmanbettermarvel18

Can agree with that. Although I do think he is a good route runner, just not quite elite. But certainly has the traits where I believe he can be!


jarvistheconquerer

That’s fair. Definitely not trying to understate his abilities. I think he’s probably around the 15th or so best receiver at least and he’s still young. If I was a bears fan I would be pumped because he’s legit


willarin

Too bad Fields hasn’t shown that either.


nmb_ds

Right Fields is probably not the best person to unlock him, but it was a weak year for WR's in the draft and FA. It seems fair for both parties tbh.


Batmanbettermarvel18

That’s true for the most part, he has certainly shown glimpses of what he can be capable of tho, also he’s young enough to give him a chance to reach his full potential and build around while on rookie deal


BobWeirsHotLegs

Is getting off of DJ Moore’s contract a sneaky bonus in this trade for Carolina?


gogosox82

his contract isn't bad tho. pretty team friendly honestly. 3/$52 million


MSKOnlyScans

*Russillo voice* The cap's going up


deemerritt

No it's very team friendly. He's paid for what he is imo.


moons_a_skull

He’s never had a decent QB and he still averages 1.1k receiving yards over the last 3 seasons


deemerritt

He is the king of garbage time Yac yardage against soft zones down two scores.


Gaius_Octavius_

Down two scores could be different but he will still face a lot of soft zones with Fields as the QB. They try to double him and Fields can just take off.


NickMullensGayDad

Still doesn’t


ID0ntCare4G0b

I'm not so sure. He's sort of a poor man's #1 option.


Gaius_Octavius_

I would call him a 'middle-class man's' #1 option. If you pair him with the right complimentary #2, they could work great.


moons_a_skull

Moore is worth 2 mid FRP’s He’s on a 3/$52m deal (with $22m guaranteed) Never had a decent QB and still puts up *borderline* Pro Bowl numbers and he’s only 25


Gaius_Octavius_

I don't think he is worth 2 firsts but say the 23th pick and the 37th pick would feel pretty fair to me. He is proven talent and can still get better.


VinDieselClickIt

The Panthers wanted to throw in their ‘25 first instead of Moore so that’s probably a fair read on his value.


Handcuffed

Definitely feels like a brutal trade for Carolina. What would Arizona have charged them for going to #3? Probably far less and they still guarantee themselves one of those high-tier QBs.


godawgsathens

#3 is pointless if you want one of the top 2 guys


Handcuffed

Literally [every study on the draft ever conducted](https://www.vox.com/2015/4/30/8516007/nfl-draft-economics) shows that teams have no idea which players are good and which are not. Trading up to #3 and ensuring you get "one of the top QBs" is literally just as good, statistically speaking, as trading up to #1 and getting, "the top QB". And it wouldn't cost you nearly as much in assets. It looks like you're a Panthers fan, though, so i guess you are just being ^(weirdly emotional).


alphadougg

What you're missing is nobody ever thinks like that. Front offices want "their guy" that they can believe in. They don't want to just trade in the range that the top guys are in and then see which one they get, even if you happen to think that might be a better idea.


Handcuffed

We saw the Niners do this very same thing just a few years ago, right? And in three of the last four years, that team has been to *at least* the NFC Championship game -- pretty smart franchise! Lance may be a total and complete bust and yet the Niners still seem okay. Do you think they'd be having the same team success if they went all the way to #1 instead of #3 to get Lance? I think you can also argue that most teams employ this sort of logic by not trading up frequently. You don't often see teams jump 2-4 spots in the draft to ensure they get, "their guy".


alphadougg

Didn't the Niners trade happen after it was all but fully understood that Lawrence and Wilson would go 1 and 2? They traded up with the express purpose of getting Lance, from what I remember. If the Panthers traded up to the 3, at this point we have no clue what the Texans are doing and the Bears could still deal that pick elsewhere. If there's a QB out of the 4 they like the most, I don't think they wanted to take the chance that he wouldn't be there at #3 after the first two picks.


mylifewuznevereazy

All these guys on video games and the PFF draft (me) gotta understand that in real life you’re not the only team making trades


OmegaAtrocity

At the end of the day I don't mind it, i think its a reasonable level of compensation. I hate seeing DJ go, he's been one of our few bright spots for the past several years. 1 first, 2 seconds, and a top 15-20ish receiver seems about right to go from 9 to 1.


shoegaze521

Rumor is the Titans had already offered their first in 2023-2025, plus whatever else. Panthers had to give up what they did.


alphadougg

Where'd you hear this? Not denying it, I'm just a Titans fan so I'm really curious lol


shoegaze521

No idea if it’s actually true, but it’s definitely been out there around Bears people. Some Twitter types I follow that aren’t news breakers but definitely have Bears contacts mentioned them.


Raw_Cocoa

Bears had all the leverage. Panthers had to overpay


jjgshnimnt

I’d be stoked if I was a bears fan. Glad they are giving Fields a chance


OnceWoreJordans

Can confirm, am stoked for that. Plus DJ Moore, Claypool and Mooney is a fairly decent trio of WRs.


Gaius_Octavius_

Plus Montgomery and Herbert. Lots of weapons.


dumpyduluth

Monty is a free agent


Gaius_Octavius_

I thought next season was the last of his contract.


moons_a_skull

Moore is a top 10 WR imo


kdubs412

Chase Claypool is a top 3 WR. Source: Chase Claypool


MSKOnlyScans

That's way too steep. Jefferson, Adams, Kupp, Hill, AJ Brown, Chase, Higgins, Lamb, Hopkins, Amon-Ra St. Brown, Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Stefon Diggs, and Waddle I feel confident saying are better. Then guys like DeVonta Smith, Terry McLaurin, DK Metcalf, Aiyuk, Deebo, Olave, Wilson, Keenan Allen, and Amari Cooper have arguments.


moons_a_skull

My top 10 is; Jefferson, Kupp, AJB, Chase, Adams, Waddle, Deebo, McLaurin, Metcalf, Diggs, then Moore so I guess technically 11th. Most of those guys you listed are definitely not as good as Moore (Lamb, Higgins, Amon-Ra, Aiyuk, etc)


brettB54

You have Moore ranked over Tyreek Hill?


Gaius_Octavius_

I would put him 15ish but he could become top 10 with better hands.


OmegaAtrocity

Enjoy DJ for me, he's been one of the lone bright spots on some downright horrendous Panthers teams the last few years, you'll love him.


mysterymaninurhome

I’m absolutely pumped. Great trade down.


cookiemonster8u69

I'm a Bears fan (and an Ohio State fan) and I am beyond thrilled with this haul.


LonesomeHammeredTreb

Bears are so lucky the Texans won that last game.


dumpyduluth

Never tell a man he's fired before his last shift. That's management 101


scal23

https://twitter.com/JWerner247/status/1634322501202321408?t=_kgjjyETSUHyVzrp2peY4w&s=19 DJ Moore is 25, has three years left on a very fair contract and already has more career receiving yards (5,201) than the Bears all-time leading receiver (Johnny Morris, 5,059).


ScalarWeapon

> already has more career receiving yards (5,201) than the Bears all-time leading receiver (Johnny Morris, 5,059). ok that is wild


Gaius_Octavius_

I didn't realize he just started that extension.


Traditional-Most-787

I think the Bears just fleeced the Panthers. That's a hell of a haul.


joostinwhales

I don’t understand trading away your best receiver before right before you draft a QB, it seems like the panthers are just making it harder for whoever they draft


Sdt6023

Soo...don't trade for a potential franchise QB because you cant lose DJ Moore? They can still fill out the WR roster in free agency and the draft. They'll be fine.


joostinwhales

For sure a chance they will be fine, but my thought is moore is on a good contract and every team wants a WR to help their QB grow, whereas the panthers are trading the WR they have away


tsourced

We will probably trade for DHop


parkranger2000

They’re in full rebuild. DJ moore does nothing for them they’re gonna be one of the worst teams next year with or without him


joostinwhales

While I agree they’re in need of a rebuild, didn’t they refuse to trade burns last year when they could of got more picks for him? Seems like they are trying to be somewhat relevant


5towns

Bryce Young will probably sit behind Darnold or something for a year


OmegaAtrocity

No chance whoever we pick isn't the day 1 starter. We have no qb signed besides Corral, a 3rd rounder from last year.


qballLobk

Houston could have had the top pick if they had lost the last game. They won so now they are 2 and Carolina just jumped them. They could have picked the top QB or gotten that haul from Carolina to trade down. Like Mathew Berry would say: Nothing good comes from hustling.


Gaius_Octavius_

Lovie Smith is having a great laugh right now


EMOHLED

If Stroud is above average I think this will be a win win trade. But puts pressure on the Panthers to also find a WR **Or young


ID0ntCare4G0b

It's not hard to find receivers. Unlike point guards, they do actually grow on trees.


PortillosBeefDipped

Very excited about this, as a Bears fan. I'd like to see them pick an OT with pick #9 unless one of the top pass rushers drop on draft day


Gaius_Octavius_

They could very easily end up with Jalen Carter at #9 if they think it's not getting any worse. Considering they might have just picked him at #1 themselves, that has to be the dream scenario.


JokersRWildStudios

Man…as a bears fan do you take Carter at 9? I’m not so sure.


mysterymaninurhome

If he’s there 100% i would take him


Gaius_Octavius_

If no more news comes out about the crash, getting Carter would be a dream. He would have been a great pick at #1 before the arrest.


mysterymaninurhome

If nothing else comes out, I feel like he’s still going to go top 5 tbh


Gaius_Octavius_

Probably. Draft rooms have been wanting him and Anderson since they were true freshman. Teams would trade up if either of them started to fall because all the QBs went fast.


gogosox82

if anderson and carter are gone, they should take johnson from OSU. Lord knows they need all the oline help they can get.


ThugBeast21

Agreed. Can’t see Carroll passing on him at 5


JokersRWildStudios

Scared he might be uh…arrested


Doot2112

You don’t seem to understand the legal system


NoExcuses1984

I'm a Seahawks fan who'd take Jalen Carter at #5.


xfortehlulz

maybe im in madden mode but as a neutral fan I really want Chicago to take one of the TEs and just load up on weapons. can't guard all 4 of Mayer, Mooney, Claypool, Moore AND the threat of the run. I also just think if the Northwestern tackle isn't there I wouldn't reach for any of the others that high.


Raw_Cocoa

They won't have to all be guarded if Fields has no time to throw


[deleted]

So many good WRs for fields to now throw the ball to


dellscreenshot

Makes sense. DJ Moore is a great get. Build a good roster, get fields a chance and if he doesn’t perform you know you need to move on.


sperry20

Bears getting the ammo to move up next year and get Caleb Williams or drake maye. I like it.


gogosox82

As a bears fan, this is good move. very excited to see what fields can do with dj moore and bears get their 2nd round pick back from when they traded it to get claypool.


mkmore4

I thought they’d string this out a little longer to maybe create a bidding war, but it’s a nice deal for the Bears. To get a high end playmaker and all those picks in one deal is pretty rare.


ID0ntCare4G0b

I'm zagging here. Great trade for the Panthers. They essentially give up a not quite star receiver who has had #2 option production two of the past four years, one first and two seconds to swap places for the #1 pick. And the Bears even let them stagger the years they give up the first and the second. Kinda think the Bears low key blew it. Should've pushed harder for getting the 1st and 2nd in 2024 and maybe even a first in 2025 instead of a second. I'm also not real high on DJ Moore as a #1, especially in this era of out of the box ready to go receivers.


ty5486

I agree and dropping 8 spots is a lot for only one extra first. The main benefit of the Colts trade everyone was mocking to me was you’re still getting Anderson/Carter on top of the extra capital, now you’re out of that territory and miss on getting the opp to do a second trade down to QB needy team if you want that. Leaving the top 4 this far away from draft night is crazy to me Also in a super weak nfc south like it’s not out of the question Carolina wins the div next season. For the Panthers it’s a home run value wise in my eyes they just gotta make the right pick Edit: also not getting 39 instead of 61 is an underrated miss too. Remember Chicago traded pick 32 for Claypool so they don’t have a 2nd round pick until the end of the round


ID0ntCare4G0b

I wonder if Carter's stock dropping might have factored into their decision.


xfortehlulz

yea I think this is a win for the bears cause they didnt need a QB at 1, but DJ moore getting talked about like he's a star is really odd to me.


dellscreenshot

There's a huge difference in contract but if I'm the panthers I would've rather waited till after the draft and tried to get Lamar to sign an offer sheet. It would only be two firsts and they wouldn't have to give up pick 9.


NotManyBuses

As a Panthers fan I’m gonna kms The best receiver on the team is now Terrace Marshall. Did anyone outside of Carolina even know who that is? I thought so Young is a midget, Stroud is black Jared Goff at best, Levis and Richardson aren’t worth even a top 10 pick


Gaius_Octavius_

I think it will be Stroud. Young is just too small and the others didn't need to be taken at #1.


lloyd4567

https://twitter.com/brettkollmann/status/1634320865964982273?s=46&t=q4vt0AgNXiK6tNe_hsSoRw


rossboss711

They gave up a lot but I’d rather take a swing than continue to go 7-10 every year and get the #9 pick


PortillosBeefDipped

well yeah I know who that is because the 2019 LSU offense was all time.


NotManyBuses

Well to phrase it another way, have you ever see him make a play in the NFL? Do you know what number he wears?


FrankStalloneGQ

I'm thinking it had to come from Tepper. There isn't a QB worth trading all that much for, and there are four QB's that teams could realistically have as number one on their board. Apparently Tepper can't play simple poker, and I can't believe the Bears fleeced a team. That just never happens.


Gaius_Octavius_

Tepper seems like he would be a handful to work for. Very involved and never satisfied.


offensivename

Are you implying that Will Levis could conceivably number one on someone's board...?


FrankStalloneGQ

Yes...? Did you think Daniel Jones was going to get drafted 6th overall four years ago? With the success of very toolsy QB's of the last several years, it would not be completely crazy for a few teams to rank Levis number one on their board. I am not some Levis superfan, and I know his tape is very flawed, but there will be teams that look at his tape and find all/most of the flaws to be fixable. Edit: The rumor is that Reich has Stroud and Levis as his top QBs while Tepper likes Stroud and Young. There's a good chance that NFL folks are higher on Levis than the draft community/fans.


offensivename

I don't see it. Stroud and Young have been the consensus one and two in some order forever and Richardson is the upside pick. Can't imagine anyone having Levis over all three of them.


FrankStalloneGQ

I'm not necessarily disagreeing with you, but I can especially see a couple AFC teams really put an emphasis on tools and feel like Levis could be the Josh Allen of this draft. That is not my personal take, but the NFL is a copycat league, and front offices generally chase past mistakes. I can see a team like the Raiders or Titans feel like they need a freak at QB to compete in the conference and overrate a guy like Levis.


tsourced

We can make moves like trading for DHop. Worth it anyways to have a QB.


tsourced

Panthers fan here, pumped as hell to get our pick of the litter. Signs point to Stroud right now but it’s got to either be him or Young. Bummed to lose DJ but we can get aggressive and trade for DHop.


Gaius_Octavius_

I like Moore a lot but finding WRs is pretty easy compared to finding a QB. Personally, I am not sold on Stroud, but if the Panthers are, you do it and don't really think twice about it.


tsourced

Agreed


Dazzling-Decision285

It's a haul of draft picks, but the hit rate on 1st Rd picks is not that high and even lower for the 2nd Rd. People widely overrate the value of picks.


ScalarWeapon

Fair. I do agree picks get overvalued sometimes. But could you extend the same logic to the other side of this trade, that #1 pick? In recent years there's Goff, Winston, Bradford, Mayfield..


BobWeirsHotLegs

Am I the only one who thought the Bears might be able to get more? Maybe I’m just not a DJ Moore fan


scal23

The Bears basically took Moore instead of the '25 first, so in a roundabout way they got him for one first when guys like Hill and Brown have gone for two.


mysterymaninurhome

I can see Moore being somewhat polarizing, but he’s played with shit QBs, is 25, and they have him at a reasonable number for 3 more seasons.


buzzlighty3ar99

bears got fleeced , why not wait till closer to the draft


Gaius_Octavius_

The reports are they wanted the DJ Moore part done before free agency so they can use their money elsewhere.


BuckyWunderlick007

the Bears got fleeced?? no, it’s the other way around.


ID0ntCare4G0b

They didn't get fleeced, but they didn't do as well as the Titans did when they dealt the #1 pick to the Rams.


mysterymaninurhome

The rams weren’t even in the top 10 when they did that trade


OmegaAtrocity

I don't really think the Panthers got fleeced, that's just what the price is for that kind of trade up. The Bears did pretty well.


ProskXCX

I think trading out of number 1 is super risky for Bears. I think Stroud and Young can be great and am not a believer in Fields. Love this for the Panthers though. If they hit on QB, he's gonna be a huge reason for their success the next decade+. Trading Moore for a chance at that means little in the long run.


Gaius_Octavius_

I’m the opposite. I would take Fields over Stroud or Young. If Young was Stroud’s size, I would take him over Fields.


meloghost

yea and if Fields sucks you have 2 1sts to move up with for a QB class that nearly every expert thinks is superior.


Doot2112

If the panthers end up with a franchise qb it’s a steal. If I was Chicago I would’ve traded down and also trade fields


Gaius_Octavius_

I just said the same thing. If Stroud actually hits, any price was worth it. A true franchise QB is worth 10 first round picks.


Doot2112

They traded a receiver they probably don’t want to pay, a first round pick and 2 seconds to move from 9 to 1. Total steal


Gaius_Octavius_

I am just not a believer in this QB class is what it comes down to. I would have made that trade next year for Caleb Williams in a heartbeat.


Doot2112

I am a will Levis believer. He will be the top quarterback in the draft


Gaius_Octavius_

Until the defense comes out drinking milk… He has all the tools but some of the stories make me nervous.


Doot2112

That could certainly be a problem


offensivename

Moore is going into year one of a reasonable extension. They definitely wanted to keep him.


Doot2112

Then they wouldn’t have traded him. It’s a new regime with Frank reich


offensivename

They traded him because the Bears refused to do the deal without him in it. The Panthers wanted to give them their 2025 first instead, but the Bears insisted on Moore.


Doot2112

Better off for Carolina. An expensive wide receiver on a bad team is worthless


offensivename

Better off if whoever we draft is the real deal. Sucks even more to have given up a player already known to be really good if he busts though. Also makes it more difficult to develop him if he has no one to throw to.


Doot2112

If the quarterback is worth while it doesn’t matter who the receivers are. Look at Trevor Lawrence. Everyone thought the Christian Kirk deal was awful and that Evan engram was a bust with the giants. Nobody know who zay Jones was before Lawrence got him the ball. Frank reich is supposed to be qb guru. He now gets his chance to prove it


offensivename

Hey now... As an ECU alum, I'll have you know that Zay Jones is the all-time college football receptions leader! If the trade works out, then it works out. It mostly just sucks to lose DJ right after losing McCaffrey, our only other real offensive weapon. Though the McCaffrey trade was what gave us pick 61 and allowed us to keep #39, so you know... I'd feel better about the whole thing if I trusted quarterback evaluations even slightly. We had two quarterbacks who went top three on the roster last year and we see how that went.


Stercules25

I really thought the Bears would get much more/ a better deal than this tbh


Obvious-Unit3560

Bears fan I am very happy with deal the only thing worth watching last year was Fields and the secondary DJ Moore steps in and fills our recieving room now get a front 6 on defense and an O line


extraedward69

Subpar return for the bears
