All eyes are on the Chicago Bears as the 2023 NFL Draft is slowly approaching in the coming months.
The Bears have the first overall pick in the draft and all eyes will be on them.
This pick gives them unlimited power in a draft full of excellent quarterbacks.
With everyone wondering what they will do with their pick, they could pull a shocking move during the draft.
The most shocking move would be to make multiple trades to move back in the draft, then trade for Sean Payton.
While everyone in Chicago would be floored by this, it can reverse the direction of the franchise.
With the Broncos already interested in Payton, the Bears need to make an offer the New Orleans Saints can’t refuse for him.

However, Payton will need “functionality,” from the front office, as this is the most important thing to him.
If the Bears can prove this to him, they sit in a better position to get him from the Saints.
Making moves to gain more first-round picks with their current pick can prove this to Payton.
It will show him they have the smarts to build for their future.
When you add in their cap space for 2023 and Justin Fields, it’s a dream job for Payton.
While it seems impossible that the team will fire Matt Eberflus after one season, it’s still possible.
However, this only happens if they can convince the Saints and Payton.
If this happens, it makes sense to take a proven coach over their current head coach in Chicago.
