They just traded, supposedly two first round draft picks, for Khalil Mack, the DE/LB of the Raiders. who was the 2016 defensive player of the year, and as every good as Aaron Darnold is of the Rams. Mack is on the last year of his rookie contract, so it's expected the Bears will in turn sign him to a long term deal. With Roquan Smith rookie LB, and ninth pick Leonard Floyd LB as well, the defensive is primed to make a good stand this year.
If Trubisky can progress as everyone hopes in his second year, with Howard and Cohen in the back field, and receivers like Robinson, Miller, White (if he can stay healthy), and Burton at TE, this team can be a surprise team, if not at least a wild card team. It has the potential to go from last to first, but i don't think that's realistic.
What do you make of the trade for Mack, and the potential long term extension they will sign him too, (you don't give up two first round picks for a rental player), to play for the Bears?
