Bears Top Trade Partner for $20 Million Pro-Bowl Edge Rusher
New front office personnel in the Chicago Bears and Minnesota Vikings could lead to trade business between the teams if it benefits both parties.
The Bears need a better pass rush to improve their record in the second year of the rebuild.
Vikings pay $17-$20M for linebacker Danielle Hunter, unsure of his future with the team.
Chicago had the lowest sack production in the NFL in 2022, with only 20 sacks as a team.
Ngakoue and DaMarcus Walker's addition adds 16.5 sacks from last season, improving the Bears' pass rush but not reaching an elite level.
The Vikings increased Hunter's pay to $17 million guaranteed and $20 million with incentives for one year but did not extend his contract.
