NFL Rumors: Chicago Bears Could Trade Down Twice In First Round

The Chicago Bears are becoming more and more likely to trade the No. 1 overall pick in this year's draft, but according to multiple league sources, the team is even considering doing a rare double-trade back in the first round.

By doing so, the Bears would acquire multiple first-round picks this year and in 2024, along with other round picks in this year's draft.

The Bears like Justin Fields and are ready to move forward with him as their quarterback of the future, but they need to surround him with more offensive talent.

Here are some worthwhile notes on the whole situation: 

  • Bears unlikely to use No. 1 pick on a QB, as they're confident in Justin Fields as their 2023 starter

  • Houston Texans and Indianapolis Colts are currently the most likely trade partners, as they both have a desperate need for a quarterback and could offer multiple first-round picks

  • Seattle Seahawks could also be a potential trade partner, even after they re-signed QB Geno Smith in free agency.

  • Other teams have already floated offers for the No. 1 pick, and the Bears may entertain trade talks with teams inside the top 10.

  • Bears' draft board rankings and free agency signings will determine whether they prioritize asset acquisition or choose a starter-ready piece for their trenches. Photo Credit:  Jamie Sabau-USA TODAY Sports
