With tight end David Njoku requesting a trade, why should the Chicago Bears avoid the former first-round pick?
Hypothetically speaking, the Chicago Bears could manage to get creative and figure out a way to land Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku, however doing so wouldn’t be very smart. While Njoku is just 23 years old and a former first-round pick who’s got two years left on his rookie contract, the Bears seem to be set with the tight end position.
In free agency, the Bears also added Jimmy Graham on a two-year deal while spending the 43rd overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft on Notre Dame tight end Cole Kmet? The motive behind both these moves? Graham will end up being a mentor for Kmet, who was a two-sport athlete in college, splitting his time between football and baseball.
