Bears fans are speaking out in response to Jaylon Johnson’s trade request.
For the second year in a row, Chicago general manager Ryan Poles may be preparing to release another young, talented defensive playmaker.
Jaylon Johnson, drafted in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft out of Utah, is one of the last remaining pillars from the Ryan Pace era. Johnson has established himself as one of the league’s top cover corners and is having his best season yet. He has two interceptions and allows a 47% completion percentage with no touchdowns. He could now be traded to a contender before the trade deadline on Tuesday
According to ESPN NFL insider Jeremy Fowler, Bears cornerback Jaylon Johnson has requested a trade after the two sides failed to get close on a contract extension. Johnson is set to be a free agent at the end of the season.
Here’s what people are saying about Jaylon Johnson’s trade request:

I have said it for YEARS… bad organizations let great players leave. Good organizations build around home grown talent.

The Roquan trade was fine at the time as the rationale was build/pay your premium positions
The edmunds signing clouded the waters
Trading JJ would just leave no doubt about it, poles is in over his head

I don't know where rock bottom is for the #Bears. Every time it seems they've bottomed out, they find a new low. Ryan Poles has completely destroyed this franchise in less than two years. It's almost impossible to be as bad as he's been. He should be fired immediately.

Bad franchise does bad things
I could understand some of the trading of older players but this one would be a head scratcher. What a joke we are https://t.co/susEdCErI1

I don't get the #Bears not coming to terms on an extension with Jaylon Johnson.
He's young, playing great football and – if his past comments are any indication – isn't asking for elite CB1 money. There comes a time you pay your homegrown talent. This should've been that time.

Jaylon Johnson requested a trade from the Bears… Ryan Poles refusing to pay another young core defensive player 2yrs in a row is mind boggling. Nobody is coming to Chicago for less money. But can’t say I didn’t see it coming #DaBears
