Could the Kansas City Chiefs and the Chicago Bears come together on some trades in the 2022 offseason? We take a look at some options.
The Chicago Bears have hired former Kansas City Chiefs executive Ryan Poles as their general manager, and with the ties between these two front offices, we should brace ourselves for any potential trades the two teams could make.
Those kinds of relationships are huge during the NFL Draft as well as the offseason, so you should expect the Bears and Chiefs to be talking this offseason, even if nothing materializes. But what could materialize? With just a couple of weeks before the 2022 NFL offseason gets underway, I want to take a look at some fun trade targets on the Bears roster the Chiefs could target.
The Chicago Bears could add some much-needed draft capital and the Chiefs could continue to add proven players to their championship-ready roster.
Kansas City Chiefs trade target No. 1: Tarik Cohen, RB
At this particular point, I think it’s safe to say that Clyde Edwards-Helaire has not lived up to his first-round billing.
He missed three games his rookie season and then missed another seven in his sophomore campaign, which obviously raises major questions about his durability and ability overall to hold up as a featured runner in the NFL.
Durability concerns have also been there for Tarik Cohen, to be fair, but he would be coming into Kansas City to pair up with Edwards-Helaire and spell him, not take his job.
Prior to the 2020 season, Cohen was developing into one of the elite pass-catching backs in the NFL. We saw the Chiefs get some great use this past season out of Jerick McKinnon and I think Cohen could be used in a similar way, adding another speedy, dynamic weapon in the passing game for this offense.
