1. Trade for Howard

A few weeks ago, there was speculation surrounding the Chicago Bears, and how they may be open to trading Jordan Howard.

After recently agreeing to a two-year deal with Mike Davis, a trade involving Howard seems even more likely for the NFC North champions, and it would be absolutely insane if the Eagles didn’t give the Bears a call to see what it would take to land the former fifth-round pick.

Three years ago, Chicago knew they had nothing to lose by drafting Howard, as the running back would go on to be one of the biggest steals from his class after rushing for 1,313 yards with six touchdowns as a rookie.

With this in mind, one has to wonder why the Bears would be willing to give up on Howard with this kind of potential, but between having Davis and Tarik Cohen on top of Howard entering the final year of his contract, it does make sense.

Chicago knows that it’s only a matter of time before Howard asks for a massive pay raise, and if the Eagles were to consider bringing him on board for the long run, why wouldn’t they consider this possibility?
