Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy and general manager Ryan Pace are clearly on the hot seat despite leading the team to a surprise playoff appearance last season.
In reality, their futures in the Windy City will depend heavily on the quarterback situation. Pace bombed out big time by trading up for the recently-departed Mitchell Trubisky in the 2017 NFL Draft and is set to rely on Andy Dalton to save his job in 2021. It’s not an ideal scenario for the general manager.
This has led to speculation that Chicago’s brass might look to pull off a blockbuster trade up in next week’s draft to land one of the top-five signal callers. Unfortunately for Pace and Nagy, their questionable futures in Chicago could handcuff them when it comes to making a trade.
