  • Bears TE Greg Olsen reportedly on trade block, should Rams make offer?

    According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's Greg Bedard, the loudest Combine chatter of late has been that Bears TE Greg Olsen is on the block.

    One rumor making the rounds had Olsen going to the Pats for one of the team's three second-round picks. Olsen's skills are a poor fit for Mike Martz's offense and the Bears don't have an early-round pick this year, so the chatter makes sense on the surface. The Bears could then pursue Brandon Manumaleuna as a blocking tight end.

    Id definitely give the Bears an offer for Olsen, but i doubt i would go as far as doing a straight swap involving our second rounder (#33). Id offer the high third rounder we have and see if they bite. Olsen is an established pro and if we were to bring in a rookie QB he offers a much better option at the TE position then the Rams have had in a long time

    In other years I would definitely consider it, but I think our first three, and even first four picks are too important to our rebuilding process at this point. Certainly not worth our second round pick.

      I'd call them and see if they'll give us Olsen for Alex Barron. The Rams get their starting tight end who is a nice target in the passing game, and the Bears get a starting offensive tackle familiar with OC Mike Martz's offense (remember, Martz was still here in 2005 when the Rams drafted Barron).

        I don't know what I'd offer for him, but I'd be interested in picking him up for sure.

          Nick I really like this idea. Maybe even like Barron and the Eagles 5th round pick that we have. Considering we would have used a pick on a Tight End. This would be an awesome deal.

            GET OUT OF MY BRAIN!!!!

            (I was thinking the same thing, and I'd make that trade in a heartbeat)

              lol if Bears took Barron for Olsen, they'd have both of the Rams OT's from the Martz' days...

                This idea makes too much sense for it to happen in real life.

                  Actually Orlando was cut this week, why they now have the void at the tackle position.

                    Why give up a 2nd round tender for Barron (if someone signs him & we don't match.) To young and talented not to get picked up.

                    I would rather keep second maybe give up a 3rd for Olson or Scheffler.

                    I would stil draft a TE in the Draft D. Pitta or J. Graham both great receiving threats.

                        I'm not doubting the need of OT for the Bears but I would be surprised if they traded Barron for Olsen straight up.

                        I would LOVE IT but I doubt it.

                        Sorry if I am poop-canning on the party. ;)

                          This would be amazing! We would be able to keep all of our picks, fill a huge hole, and get a nice receiving threat.

                            am i the only one not so optimistic about Barron's free agency attractiveness? He still IS the NFL's leader in false starts and has a 50/50 chance of having a good game. I think we'd at least have to throw in a fifth rounder as well. That would be a fair trade.

                              Oh yeah the Bears would be foolish to do this as a straight up trade, but we can dream right?
