Twitter reacts to Bears trading for Steelers WR Chase Claypool

The Chicago Bears have made a splash ahead of the NFL trade deadline in acquiring receiver Chase Claypool from the Pittsburgh Steelers.

It’s important to note that Chicago is sending their own 2023 second-round pick to Pittsburgh for Claypool, not the second-round selection they acquired from the Baltimore Ravens in exchange for linebacker Roquan Smith.

The Bears landed a playmaker at receiver in Claypool, who gives quarterback Justin Fields a big-bodied, vertical threat in the passing game.

As you can imagine, NFL fans had plenty to say about the Bears’ big move. While Chicago’s second-round pick is a hefty price for Claypool, Bears fans are excited that GM Ryan Poles is choosing to invest in Fields — and that starts with helping his development this season instead of just waiting for 2023.
