Trade Pitch Nets Bears Star Edge Rusher, Former No. 2 Pick

The 2023 Chicago Bears could surprise and contend. If necessary, GM Ryan Poles will look for pass rush upgrades.

The Bear's decision-makers have the best understanding of how the team will do this season.

If they think they can win the NFC North Division, they might make roster improvements soon.

David Kenyon of Bleacher Report proposed a trade between Chicago and Washington for Chase Young, the former No. 2 overall pick.

Yannick Ngakoue is a free agent on a one-year deal, while DeMarcus Walker is a decent starting defensive end but not a top-tier pass rusher. 

The Bears didn't choose an edge rusher in the draft, which was seen as a result of how the draft unfolded. Young, 24, is a former No. 2 pick and NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year. 

Moving on Young now has pros and cons. Young's frequent injuries have reduced his trade value, giving teams like the Bears more bargaining power.

Young will be a free agent soon. To make a deal for him, Chicago needs to offer Young a long-term extension.

Young's injury problems and potential decline could make his big swing a big miss, despite his youth and talent.
