The Chicago Bears got further assistance in laying the groundwork for the future,
Roquan Smith, the NFL's top tackler, was acquired by the Ravens on Monday, a source said.
According to a source who spoke with Schefter, the Ravens traded linebacker A.J. Klein to Chicago as part of the deal,
and the Bears will take on $4.833 million of Smith's $5.408 million remaining on his contract for the remainder of the year.
Before the trade deadline on Tuesday, the Baltimore Ravens added a playmaker to the defence.
To strengthen a defence that is currently ranked 28th in yards allowed and 20th in points allowed, the Ravens install the tackling machine.
