Chicago Bears Fans React to Chase Claypool trade, Addition by subtraction?
The Chicago Bears made one of the worst trades in their franchise history last year when they sent a second-round pick to the Pittsburgh Steelers for WR Chase Claypool. That second-round pick turned out to be a literal first round pick, as the Steelers took Joey Porter Jr. 32nd overall, due to the Bears finishing with the worst record in the league.
Today, the Chicago Bears traded Claypool away to the Miami Dolphins for 2025 6th round pick, virtually nothing compared to what they traded for him. It’ll go down as a massive blemish to Ryan Poles’ track record as the GM of the Bears, and he’ll need to do a lot to make up for it in the coming years, or that’ll be all he’s remembered for.
The Bears fanbase had a field day on social media, as people shed virtual tears of joy due to the departure of Claypool, who had provided nothing but drama and poor effort since the moment he stepped foot in Halas Hall. Take a look at some of the posts around the country.
What a royal screw up. #bears

Addition by subtraction. If this helps the locker room, so be it

Claypool trade was a big mistake so was drafting a kick returner with a 3rd round pick.
