In successful trade deals, the Chicago Bears have experience in closing them.
Think back to the Khalil Mack trade in 2018.
A draft day trade in 2021 helped the Bears land Justin Fields.
Then there’s the failed trade the team made with the San Francisco 49ers to earn quarterback Mitch Trubisky a draft spot.
However, there is a new trade deal they can make with the 49ers that won’t fail.
This trade is for wide receiver Deebo Samuel, the NFL’s all-rounder.
If the Bears want a dominant offense, getting Samuel would help Chicago.
Bears Offense needs a Swiss army knife
Some NFL fans call Samuel a Swiss army knife.

Best Swiss army knife ever and it’s not even close.

This statement about him is very true.
He is a special talent that can run, catch and pass the ball.
Few players can do that on game day.
This makes his talents on the football field very special.
It also makes him a highly sought after player.
However, the one team that needs him the most is Chicago.
With Samuel, the team gets a better clear receiver and a huge boost to their normally disappointing offense.
He and Fields can work together to improve the Bears for the 2022 season and beyond.
It’s a wise investment if the Bears management really wants to bring a title to Chicago.
What makes Deebo Samuel worth a trade to Chicago?
Did I already say it was a Swiss army knife?
Samuel is the NFL’s all-in-one player.
In 2021, he had 1,405 receiving yards, 365 rushing yards, 24 passing yards and 15 total touchdowns.
However, the 1,405 receiving yards only came on 77 receptions.

So why is this such a big deal?
That’s because if he had the same number of receptions as Cooper Kupp, 145, he could have broken the record for receiving yards.
Those things make Samuel a necessity on the Bears offense for 2022.
Think about how Chicago could use him on offense.
The team used other players the same way Samuel was used in San Francisco.
This makes a move to Chicago easy for him.
Do the Bears get what San Francisco wants in a trade deal?
The biggest drag on a trade deal could be what Chicago can offer San Francisco.
However, we’ve seen the NFL’s top receiver of 2021 traded for just two draft picks.
But could the Bears pull off a stunt like that with San Francisco?
Maybe, if the 49ers want to wait until 2023 to get a first-round pick.
That expectation is because the Bears don’t have a first-round pick until the 2023 NFL Draft.
However, that could be enough to tempt the 49ers into a trade deal.
The Bears have other second-round picks and later in the 2022 draft they can trade to San Francisco.
Plus, they owe it to Chicago for that 2017 draft day to earn a spot.
This is the best place for him, if you ask any Bears fan.
