Steelers sending Chase Claypool to Bears for 2nd-round pick

The Pittsburgh Steelers are trading wide receiver Chase Claypool to the Chicago Bears in exchange for a second-round pick.

What It Means:

Claypool should immediately compete for the Bears' No. 2 receiver job behind Darnell Mooney, meaning fewer targets for the likes of Cole Kmet, Dante Pettis, Equanimeous St. Brown, N'Keal Harry, and Velus Jones. The acquisition should also be a boost for Justin Fields and the offense as a whole. Claypool's departure from the Steelers leaves rookie George Pickens as the clear starter opposite Diontae Johnson. There will also be more targets available for Pat Freiermuth.

Claypool had the third-highest target share (17.5%) on the Steelers this season, right behind Freiermuth (18.6%) and just ahead of Pickens (15.1%). In Chicago, Mooney is the only player on the team with a target share above 15.5%. Nobody else is averaging more than 3.3 targets per contest.
