In the past few days, a lot has happened pertaining to our favorite subject—the Chicago Bears, naturally.
They pulled out of what was reportedly a major trade for defensive end Chase Young.
Cornerback Jaylon Johnson requested permission to look for a trade after he was unable to negotiate a contract extension that satisfied him.
Finally, the Bears did acquire a defensive end in a major trade, albeit not for the player that many had assumed they would target.
The defensive end that the Bears acquired was Montez Sweat of Washington. I think Sweat is a far superior player than Young.
Since being selected in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft, Johnson has established himself as a key member of the Bears secondary.
The Bears would want to extend his contract since he is without a doubt their greatest secondary cover man.
Johnson claims that representatives for both the Bears and Johnson worked on an agreement last week.
