1. Eddie Goldman
Last September, the Bears rewarded Eddie Goldman with a hefty four-year extension worth $42 million after looking at how much of an impact he made on defense during the previous three seasons.
Without question, Goldman was one of the main reasons behind Chicago being able to work their way into having one of the top defenses during the 2018 season, and with the defender turning 25 last January, it seems like the best has yet to come.
When taking all of this into consideration, why on earth would the Bears even consider the thought of moving on from Goldman since he’s clearly a valuable member of the defense?
Well, as teams always show in the NFL, sometimes offers are made that are simply too good to turn down, and the Rams made it clear last offseason a few times that anything can be possible trade wise.
Trading Goldman to another contender like Los Angeles obviously doesn’t make that much sense for Chicago since the argument can be made they would only be hurting themselves, but also the Bears know how much money they would save down the road.
Acquiring Goldman would be an absolute long shot for the Rams at this point in the offseason, but also when has this ever stopped the team before from trying?
