The 2023 offseason will be a critical time to get offensive playmakers for the Chicago Bears.
With the team having over $100 million in projected cap space, they have plenty of money to get some elite players.
However, the team has plenty of issues that need fixing heading into the offseason.
They lack a star receiver and a solid offensive line.
While they have options with their running game, their passing attack was one of the worst in 2022.
One way to fix this might be to trade for DeAndre Hopkins, who the Arizona Cardinals are looking to trade.

However, could he be a trade target for the team, or is making a deal for him too much of a risk?
Hopkins Is Only Worth Trading For If The Price Is Right
The fans in Chicago want their team to get Hopkins.
He’s a proven receiver with a history of making insane catches.
However, he also comes with an injury history which drags down his value.
Add in how he will be 31-years-old and you have a reason to lowball the Cardinals in a trade deal for him.
But it’s not likely the Cardinals will take a low offer for someone who still has a couple of years left in him.
For the Bears, the right price will look similar to the Amari Cooper trade in 2022.
In that trade, the Cleveland Browns got Cooper, a four-time Pro Bowler, for a fifth and sixth-round pick.
If the price for Hopkins isn’t higher than this, the Bears should take a chance on the five-time Pro Bowler.
