At the trading deadline on Tuesday, Ryan Poles, general manager of the Chicago Bears, switched from being a seller to a buyer.

The news was initially reported by ESPN.

NFL Network Insider Tom Pelissero tweeted on Tuesday that the Bears have acquired wide receiver Chase Claypool from the Pittsburgh Steelers in exchange for a 2023 second-round draught pick

According to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport,

the Steelers will not be receiving the pick they acquired in Monday's trade with the Ravens for Roquan Smith,

but rather the Bears' original second-round selection.

Chicago supporters have been pleading with the Poles to do something to advance second-year quarterback Justin Fields.

On Tuesday, Poles finally responded to that call, albeit at a high cost for a former second-round pick in his third season.

Claypool, 24, has a contract that lasts through 2023.
