It is unusual for teams within the same division to engage in trade negotiations with one another, but recent personnel changes in the front offices
the Chicago Bears and Minnesota Vikings might make this a more often occurrence, particularly if the transaction is mutually beneficial.
If the Bears hope to finish above.500 in the second season of the franchise's rebuilding project,
they will need further help getting pressure on the quarterback. Danielle Hunter, an outside linebacker,
Is being paid anywhere between $17 and $20 million by the Vikings, even though it does not look that he will be a part of the team's long-term future.
Before the Bears signed Yannick Ngakoue and while Hunter and the Vikings were in the midst of a contract dispute,
It made sense for Chicago to make a trade with Minnesota that involved the Bears trading their second-round pick in 2024 to Minnesota
In exchange for Hunter and then signing the three-time Pro Bowler to a long-term deal. Even now, it makes perfect sense.
