Latest hypothetical trade proposal has Bears landing veteran receiver

The Chicago Bears aren’t a team that many consider to be buyers ahead of the NFL’s trade deadline on Nov. 1.

 After all, this team isn’t in the business of winning this season.

But this season is about development, including hopeful franchise quarterback Justin Fields.

 Fields doesn’t have a solid supporting cast with a struggling offensive line and underwhelming receiving corp.

So if there’s an opportunity for GM Ryan Poles to improve the offense — looking to the future

Bleacher Report’s Alex Ballentine proposed a hypothetical trade where the Bears land a veteran wideout in the Patriots’

 Kendrick Bourne, who’s hit a bit of a slump coming off an impressive 2021 season.

Adding a veteran receiver who can be a reliable target in the intermediate

areas of the field would go a long way in figuring out what Fields can do with a supporting cast.

Kendrick Bourne fits that description, and based on his usage this season, he could be available.

The Chicago Bears aren’t a team that many consider to be buyers ahead of the NFL’s trade deadline on Nov. 1.

Even in a 38-15 blowout win in Week 6, Bourne saw just one target for 17 yards.
