I guess the question would be, would you rather have McCoy in this offense for a year, or Howard?

Since Cohen is going to figure prominently in the backfield I don't see any reason to trade for McCoy to split time. I'd rather pick up someone like Hyde on a cheap FA deal and keep our picks.

Easy true professional or the Drama Queen?

I keep Howard.

McCoy doesn't look much faster than Howard at this point in his career. He can catch better, but McCoy hasn't been a pillar of health either.

what seems to be lost in a lot of the discussions about Howard is he is not a bad RB ... he just is not a good fit for what the Bears now wish to do with the RB position in their system

there are teams that could use a solid conventional type back, like the Eagles for instance ... so I think there is a market for the Bears to get value in a trade of Howard rather than simply giving hm away ... and I am quite sure Ryan Pace also realizes this

I wish Howard well wherever he ends up

With the Jets getting Bell, the best "fits" for his skillset are in Oakland, Buffalo, and Tampa Bay.

Madden-type idea:

Howard + 4th
Pierre-Paul + 3rd

They clear cap space, add a starting quality RB who doesn't cost much. We get our 1 year EDGE rental and a little more draft ammo to try and move up into the 2nd.

There are videos on the NFL app where people are talking about trades with NO for Ingram or with Buffalo for McCoy. Cannot see the Bears doing either. Why would they go for a guy in the late twilight of his career? Even if he does fit Nagy's scheme better. No. Just no.

The Shady trade makes some sense to me. He’s entering the last year of his contract. So if we like a back in this draft, we can get a young back, and get Shady for a year with no intention of resigning him. Meanwhile the draftee has a year to learn.
RBs don't need a year to learn. How many rookie RBs have been outstanding? A LOT. Including Jordan Howard.

Young backs can take some time to learn protections so it couldn’t hurt but I still like my idea better
