Possible payout on the Teven Jenkins deal? Here’s what you should expect

It’s unbelievable how fast Jenkins bitches It went from a potential franchise processing to a commercial bait. The Chicago Bears He was traded to get him in the second round last year. It is fitting that things turned out this badly. It represents the perfect microcosm of Ryan Pace’s tenure as General Motors. All too often, redeem players who don’t deserve the price tags paid to get them. People aren’t sure what’s going on with Jenkins. Coach Matt Eberfluss He insists it is related to the injury. Insiders like David Kaplan and Jeff Hughes claim it’s a matter of mentality.

Both possibilities are not reassuring. Soon the news broke, and the Bears were coming up with amusing business ideas for their sophomore treat. This leads to an unprecedented fall from grace. High-altitude shots are rarely traded after one season, especially in such an important position. It leads to the obvious question of what they may or may not receive in return. So I did some research. Close to what I can tell, there are only two instances since 1994 when a highly crafted tackle (round one or two) was traded one year later.

Billy Milner in 1996 and Isaiah Wilson in 2021.

The Miami Dolphins drafted the Milner 25 overall in 1995. A year later, they sent him to the St. Louis Rams in exchange for tight end Troy Drayton. It is possible that the reasons for his trade are related to the change of regime. Longtime coach Don Shula retired in 1996. Substitute Jimmy Johnson wanted to tweak the roster, and Milner was one of several moves. As for Wilson, his rookie year was a disaster in Tennessee. He’s landed on the COVID list multiple times and clashed with coaches. The Titans got fed up, and they packed him up and picked the seventh round for a higher pick than the seventh round from Miami.

This may be the maximum that bears can expect in any trade involving Jenkins. Either exchange player for player or choose a late round. Yes, he’s a highly recruiting pick and he’s still young, but Jenkins already had serious questions about his back and now has concerns about the motivation surrounding him. You will not pay the difference furthermore.

Teven Jenkins should be back soon.

It is not clear whether the bears deliberately seated him or not. If not, the young man’s handling situation is getting worse with each missed exercise. He has to get back on the field and show the coaches that he cares about them. The best case scenario for all participants is that he enters the competition again and performs well. The Bears offensive line has been struggling in training camp so far. Jenkins has been formulated to help solve this problem. He’s still their most talented worker, but he couldn’t help if he wasn’t there.

If they trade it in, GM Ryan Bowles will likely see a draft compensation. He likes to stack the picks whenever possible, gaining more flexibility. However, if player swap becomes an option, keep an eye on wide receivers and linebackers. Bears have question marks in both situations. They can even swap out Teven Jenkins for an offensive lineman from another team. Such exchanges have occurred before.

The Poles were part of one.

It happened in 2013 when presidents and 49 people traded wide receivers Jonathan Baldwin and AJ Jenkins. He’s already proven willing to get rid of loose players because he doesn’t feel fit for what the Bears need. Jenkins may not be in Chicago by the end of the month.
