RUMOR: Bears Thinking of Trading Khalil Mack To Washington Redskins For #2 Overall Draft Pick
The 2020 league year and free agency begins on March 18th as teams scramble to figure out what moves they are going to make before the NFL Draft.
With the NFL Draft order being set, teams are looking to see if they can make some moves to either move up or down in the draft to nab the guy they want to possibly change the course of their franchise going forward.
The Chicago Bears are likely one of those teams as they have zero draft picks in the first round this year. The only way they can likely move up is trade a player. If they want to move up somewhere in the top ten, they would mean moving a player like Khalil Mack.
Former NFLer Dan Sileo is reporting that the Chicago Bears have actually reached out to the Washington Redskins about the possibility of getting their #2 overall pick.
The player he has heard about the team moving is Khalil Mack.
Mack had 8.5 sacks and 5 forced fumbles in 2019, which is an underwhelming statistical season for a player of his caliber.
It was the lowest mark since his rookie year and also the first time since that season that he failed to reach double-digits.
