The NFL off-season has brought Chicago Bears fans into a new chapter in the team’s history. First year General Manager Ryan Poles made a smart underrated trade today with the New England Patriots. Chicago sends a 2024 seventh round pick to the Patriots who send 6’4 wide receiver N’Keal Harry. I think this is a smart trade that impacts the Bears offense with more potential.
N’Keal Harry is a former first round draft pick back in 2019. Harry is 24 years old , and with a change of scenery has a chance to get better in his early NFL career. The best part of this deal is how he slides into a young Bears offense that needs a tall receiver. Bears QB Justin Fields owes his GM a big thank you by this trade. I think N’Keal needed to find a better fit for his skillset , and Chicago’s Luke Getsy offense is just right for Harry.
The Chicago Bears acquiring Harry gives them solid depth in their wide receiver core. Receivers Darnell Mooney and rookie Velus Jones get help on offense along with Field getting another useful weapon. I see Harry fitting in the Bears offense long term given his youth , and potential to be a much needed deep threat for Chicago. I like the moves by GM Ryan Poles as they are unexpected, but smart making the future of the Chicago Bears bright . Welcome to Chicago , N’Keal Harry.
