No matter where you looked or listened, the Chicago Bears were the talk of the NFL Combine. With the top draft pick and the most cap space available, they are set up to absolutely own the offseason, so it’s no surprise that the rumors were flying in from various media outlets.

We already shared a couple that the Bears are expecting multiple first-round picks and that other NFL teams are “scrambling to get to the top pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, but this latest from Rich Eisen is especially juicy.

“The Bears are already long down the road of trading the first overall pick,” Eisen said Monday on his show, adding, “teams have been identified, compensation is being hammered out.”

Eisen, who has been the face of the NFL Network since 2003, also said that Chicago general manager Ryan Poles is “playing this thing like a virtuoso so far.”
