There’s a chance the Chicago Bears will make at least one trade before the start of the 2022 NFL season.
According to Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, the Bears received calls and had trade talks centered on offensive tackle Teven Jenkins.
Jenkins has missed three straight practices in training camp since last week. According to head coach Matt Eberflus, Jenkins is a little battered and will be assessed day to day.
However, according to NBC Sports Chicago’s David Kaplan, the most concerning thing with Jenkins is that there is a disconnect between him and the new coaching staff. This could pave the way for him to make a fresh start.
“From what I hear, it’s not a serious injury” Kaplan said via Bears Wire. “What I’m hearing is there’s a high level of disconnect between Teven and the new coaching staff.”
Jenkins was a second-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. He played in six games as a rookie, while making just two starts.
This will definitely be a story to watch over the next few weeks.
