The Halloween season is upon us and while kids will he trick or treating NFL teams will be pick and trading.
The trade deadline ends on 31st October and many players will be looking over the shoulders of their agents’ mobile phones as coaches and front staff go into overdrive.
The Chicago have been in such shocking form that maybe a Bears mask is the ideal Halloween fright night special.
Former Utah cornerback Jaylon Johnson is not so naive as to think he will be exempt from a move from the Windy City to whoever the wind doth blow.
The October deadline is a chance for underwhelming teams to ship off underperforming players and the Bears have hardly covered themselves in glory.
Players reaching expiration of their contracts could be cut loose with the Bears already letting go of Roquan Smith and Robert Smith.
“I’m not oblivious, I’m not blind and I’m not exempt at the end of the day,” Johnson said Monday on 670 The Score. “When you trade Roquan (Smith) away, when you trade Robert Quinn away, man, you can trade anybody away. So, I mean, I’m definitely not exempt.”
The Bears are bottom of the NFC North with a 1-5 record and the least performing team in the league.
If the Bears continue to be so poor at least they will have the first two overall picks in the 2024 draft.
Two hot new players will mean the current roster may be further trimmed.
They next take on the Raiders at home and will be desperate for a win.
