ESPN’s Bill Barnwell released an article Thursday outlining 11 sensible midseason NFL trade ideas, and why they make sense. You can read the full piece here.
When it came to the Kansas City Chiefs, Barnwell suggested they trade with the Chicago Bears (Hey, Matt Nagy) for cornerback Marcus Cooper, sending a seventh-round pick to bring the ex-Chief back.
Barnwell: It might be a surprise to some Bears fans that Cooper remains on the team, given that the 28-year-old hasn’t played much since infamously fumbling away a blocked field goal return on the 1-yard line against the Steelers last season. Cooper was benched shortly thereafter and cut from his four-year, $16 million contract after the season, although he re-signed with the Bears on a one-year, $1.5 million deal in March.
