Ryan Poles shocked the world a couple of weeks ago when he traded his best player to the Los Angeles Chargers. This player was edge rusher Khalil Mack. In return, the Bears received a 2nd round pick and a 6th round pick. People inside Bears nation were very conflicted on the blockbuster move.

Ian Wharton of Bleacher Report made a list of every NFL Team's smartest 2022 offseason decision so far. As you can guess, he named Mack's trade for the Bears.
Here is what he had to say on the topic:
"Rarely are trades in the NFL considered win-win deals for both sides. However, when the Chicago Bears traded 31-year-old pass-rusher Khalil Mack to the Los Angeles Chargers for a 2022 second-round pick and 2023 sixth-rounder, it simply made sense. Chicago unloaded Mack's three-year, $63.9 million deal after he missed 10 games with a foot injury.
Mack's tenure in Chicago was terrific. In four years, he compiled 36 sacks, 14 forced fumbles, and countless highlights of him dominating blockers. His impact went beyond the raw numbers.
However, the Bears are revamping their roster and clearing off the cap sheet as the Justin Fields-era begins. New general manager Ryan Poles did well to get valuable assets for an aging player with a huge contract."
While I think he is right, the most important part is what can you do with those additional assets. In order to truly call this move a great one, you need to capitalize with the draft pick and really help your new young quarterback.
