In before Kyle doom boners.

This would be a good thing (assuming the guarantees aren't crazy)

Yeah, Pace's history with trading down in the 2nd have resulted in a 2nd and 4th rounder, but all of his trade downs have been 5-8 picks later IIRC. I think you could get a 3rd if it was 10 picks difference which is why I picked Baltimore as the example.

Another option would be trading for a later 2nd and a future 3rd. Although I'm not sure how often that has happened. I believe the value of a future pick is 1 round later so a future 3rd = this years 4th rounder.

Dave Wannstedt on the Score is hilarious, said Mitch is better at some things than Mahomes but, he doesn't know what things. I to believe Mitch is better at some things than Mahomes unfortunately, for the Bears and us fans, those things aren't football related.

It must be nice to absolutely fail at coaching in the Chicago market, think of all the on-air interview opportunities you get afterwards

Jay Cutler is in talks again about a media career. Possibly in the booth or maybe a studio gig with ESPN.

As you guessed, I'd rather just let him play out the season and then talk extension. But as far as premature extensions go, this one is not that objectionable.

Same guy is saying the Bears are offering Khalil Mack in a trade for multiple 1st, 2nd and/or 3rd round picks. And now are talking with the Redskins about moving to the #2 pick.

I mean it's pretty far fetched, but seems like he's doubling down on the original rumor because the only way the Bears have the ammo to move up to 1 is if they move Mack for anything close to what they paid for him. Trading Mack to try to get up to 1 would be the boldest move in the history of sports.

Well just for fun, the Rams trade for Goff was one of the only ones I could think of that was a trade for a top 2 pick where the team moved up from outside that top 10.

That was the the 15th, 2 2nds, a 3rd and a 1st and 3rd from the following year. And neither Goff or Wentz were the prospects Burrow was.

So the Bears are lacking the mid first and the 3rd this year, plus whatever else extra it would cost.

I guess Mack could maybe get you that, but they'd be eating an additional 4m in cap just to move him and would probably have the worst pass rush in the league after the move.

So, I still feel pretty comfortable this is lol crazy.

I get why Cincinnati is "listening" to offers for the top pick, but imagine how "wowed" they would need to be to trade down? They are moving on from their QB of many years and there is one for the taking with the first pick in the draft. If they actually liked another QB better than Burrow that they think would be available a few picks later, I could see them trading. But I doubt anyone is willing to give up what Cincinnati would expect in return for that pick. And I'm clueless how the Bears even remotely fall into the list of teams that could pull off a trade like that.
