The Chicago Bears are in an enviable spot right now as their No. 1 overall pick is wanted by multiple teams across the NFL.
The Washington Commanders are among the above and would only need to move up a single spot to draft Caleb Williams given that they currently own the second-overall pick.
The Bears announced their pick was up for grabs way ahead of the trade with the Carolina Panthers last year but they haven’t made their intentions known to this point and are expected to take Williams off the board themselves.
According to the NFL Notifications account on X, Washington has a plan in place that will see them land both a competent quarterback and star wide receiver should the Bears refuse to do business with them where it pertains to the No. 1 pick.
Said plan involves drafting Ohio State WR Marvin Harrison Jr. and then trading their No. 36 pick from the second round to the Bears in exchange for Justin Fields.
The Bears haven’t outright declared that they will stick to their starting quarterback and a recent post from one of their social media accounts only served to confuse fans as they couldn’t tell whether they were saying farewell or he’s staying.
Either way, interesting times lie ahead.
