The Chicago Bears are moving. Could 2022 be better than many fans think? Well, let’s not be too crazy. I think the team finds a way to surprise some people. With a weaker schedule this season and many unknowns, this team could end up winning four to 10 games. Personally, the Bears have won eight games in 2022 and just missed the playoffs. Ryan Poles trade a seventh-round pick in 2024 for N’Keal Harry is don’t move that needle.
I’ve already taken the list and determined that three players I think are losers in this trade. Not everyone will see the impact of this deal, but I think adding N’Keal Harry to the roster will make their lives more difficult. I only had one of the three on the final roster anyway, and I also had one on the practice squad. I have a feeling Harry is ruining both of their chances of making the final 53-man roster.
N’Keal Harry trade gives us insight into Chicago Bears’ 2022 plans
At this point, there’s no point in really trying to understand the inner workings of Ryan Poles’ mind and decisions this offseason. The team has a large amount of cap space to spend, but appear to be postponing it to 2023 despite already being projected to have the most salary cap space by a significant margin. We can only assume Ryan Poles and the Bears have big plans in store for next season, but what about this year? What should we expect from this team for 2022?
Now, this is pure speculation. I have no inside knowledge of what this team is going to do for the rest of the offseason. However, we can at least deduce what a trade for N’Keal Harry means for this team and that might give us some idea of what to expect from the Chicago Bears in 2022.
