As we enter what will be one heck of a week for the NFL, the Chicago Bears are still in the thick of headlines when it comes to a potential Russell Wilson trade.
This is going to be a crucial, eventful, and flat-out shocking week in some respects. Teams are going to make the majority of their cuts as they prepare to move forward with a lower salary cap than typical years. As we have heard by now, it’s going to be a “massacre” of cuts.
Coupled with those types of moves, we could end up seeing a fair amount of trades. Would that include the Bears being able to pull off a deal for Wilson?
The Bears have been rumored to be a front-runner in the race to land Wilson if he is traded, but no one knows for sure if the Seahawks will be willing to actually pull the trigger. What we do know is that the Bears are definitely going after Wilson, and they have made him their priority, per Brad Biggs of The Chicago Tribune.
Austin Fuges, a friend of ours over at the Lake Shore Live Podcast, has an inside scoop on what the Seahawks have been asking for in a trade for Wilson.
It’s important to remember that the initial asking is a base line, and the players involved in talks are not necessarily all going to be in the deal. But, the following assets have been discussed, and as you would probably expect, are quite a bit.
