The NFL has entered a trading frenzy over the last two offseasons. We've never seen so many stars swapping teams as we have recently. The booming salary cap and player empowerment era have forever changed the way the NFL operates.

The constant wave of trades has made the NFL a year-round news producer. With training camp quickly approaching this summer, more deals will happen. It's just a matter of time until we see the next deal struck.
As for the Chicago Bears, it's no secret that they need more help at wide receiver. Here is a possible solution laid out by Ian Wharton of Bleacher report.
Bears get: WR Kenny Golladay

Giants get: 2023 sixth-round pick

No team has more cap room over the 2023 and 2024 seasons than the Chicago Bears. This team is ripe for an upside swing on a talented but expensive player who didn't work out elsewhere. The best marriage between fit, team need and an expendable player is wide receiver Kenny Golladay.

The New York Giants' star free-agent signing from the 2021 offseason struggled mightily in his first season with the franchise. The offense was ravaged by injuries, and Golladay's effort level was questionable. A new regime might buy Golladay another year in the Big Apple, but the Giants should pounce if given the chance to shed his massive $21.15 million cap hit.

Because of the way Golladay's contract is structured, New York will save $17.75 million in cap space if they deal him. Chicago would assume just $13 million in salary in 2022. They could cut him after the season and incur a modest $3.4 million dead-cap hit from 2023 through 2025 if he simply doesn't work out.

The best case for Chicago is Golladay flourishes with Justin Fields. Fields is a tremendous downfield passer, but the Bears lack an explosive big body who can get downfield. A receiving room with Golladay, Darnell Mooney, Velus Jones and Byron Pringle would stand a chance of helping Fields make a leap this season.

I'm not so sure about this one...
I feel like Golladay is not the same player he once was in Detroit and I don't like his massive Cap Hit. This would be a no for me.
