Steelers trade Claypool to the Bears for a 2nd rounder in '23

Steelers trading WR Chase Claypool to Bears for 2023 second-round pick (nfl.com)

Wow - This is a bit of a surprise, and solidifies what everyone knew:  We're in complete rebuild-mode

Time for Tigger to bring the "Can't keep my feet on the ground" act to Chicago.

Pickens is going to be a big pickup for the fantasy guys.

A good start but a rebuild should require another move or two. I would not keep 3 qb's. I'd listen to any offer for any player including Watt and Fitzpatrick. I'd be especially eager to move Heyward to a contender. Let him have a shot at a Lombardi. He sure isn't getting one in Pgh.

A couple of 3-4 win seasons and solid drafts are needed to even smell being competitive.

Also reported Claypool had become a major locker room distraction. Maybe that was what Pickett was talking about after the last game.

Good riddance.

One more of the "Player's Coach's" Ego-Centered Waste Of Talents gone away. Maybe with a coach who will not tolerate ego before team he will develop to his potential. Time will tell I reckon. Meanwhile draft a stud Offensive Lineman with that number two pick.

Steelers were able to get a 2nd rd pick for a guy who was unhappy, voiced it and became a distraction in the locker room plus we only had one more year out of him and we woulda got nothing for him.

Boykin has all the measurables (size, strength and speed) that Claypool has. Claypool won't be missed on the field.......great move by Omar.

Agree 100%. Perhaps the first thing I've liked that the Steelers have done all year.  Thumbsup

Didn't watch the game but I read he had 2 catches for 13 yards 0 TD's on 6 targets.

Sure does feel like a good trade to me. Poor Mapletron glad he's gone tbh.
