Akiem Hicks could be on the trade block

Recently news broke that the Chicago Bears offered the Seattle Seahawks three first-round picks, a third-round pick, in addition to two obscure veteran players for Pro Bowl quarterback Russell Wilson. Seattle obviously turned the Bears down, for now, and they proceeded to sign quarterback Andy Dalton.

CBS Sports’ Jason La Confora — his history on Bears news is problematic, best case scenario, — announced that Bears GM Ryan Pace really offered the Seahawks a few veteran players to browse, including starters Akiem Hicks and Khalil Mack.

The Chicago Tribune’s Brad Biggs is announcing that Seattle isn’t the only team that may have conversed with the Bears about a trade for Hicks, saying that there are “rumblings” around the league that Hicks is accessible.

Trading the 31-year old Hicks would make a major hole in the Bears defense, however it would likewise make $10.5 million in cap space for 2021.

The Bears did sign defensive Angelo Blackson on Wednesday night to invigorate their depth at the position, yet he won’t have the option to reproduce Hicks’ status on the defense.
