NFL Trade Recap: 5 Wide Receivers the Chicago Bears Should Have Targeted

The Chicago Bears desperately need help at wide receiver. They essentially have all No. 2 or slot receivers. Johnny Knox and Earl Bennett would be very good No. 2 receivers, and Devin Hester and Dane Sanzenbacher are classic slot receivers. 

Honestly, I think the Bears wide receiving core is not that bad, they just need a true No. 1. In the offseason, they foolishly acquired Roy E. Williams from the Dallas Cowboys per Mike Martz's request, and he just doesn't have it; no explosion, no big plays and no consistency. 

The Bears should have made a move to acquire a legitimate No. 1 receiver, as there were a few on the trading block, and others that could have been obtained. 

If Jay Cutler had a real weapon to throw to, he could do scary things on the field.
