The great Chicago Bears tight end purge continues, with a guy we weren’t necessarily expecting to survive draft weekend now finally on the move.
And he wasn’t even cut! The Bears might actually get something in return for Adam Shaheen:
Bears are trading TE Adam Shaheen to the Dolphins for a conditional 2021 sixth-round draft pick, per source with knowledge of the transaction.

Obviously it depends on the conditions that’ll actually net the Bears a pick, but at this point, possibly getting a little something has to be viewed as a win. (In stark contrast to the original draft selection of Shaheen, which has to be viewed as an enormous bust.)
Luis will likely have much more on this later. Moving Shaheen in trade could save the Bears upwards of $1.9 million against the cap, as opposed to cutting him and saving only $1.2 million. That alone makes the trade a good move. But if the Bears actually wind up with a sixth rounder out of it, too? Steal.
Which is kinda sad.
