The jokes about the Bears having too many tight ends will be ending soon.
Per a source with knowledge of the transaction, the Bears are trading tight end Adam Shaheen to the Dolphins. The Bears will receive a conditional sixth-round pick in 2021.
Shaheen will first have to pass a physical. He has had plenty of injuries during his three-year career; he appeared in only eight games in 2019 and six in 2018. The second-round pick in 2017 (43rd overall) has 26 career catches for 249 yards and four touchdowns.
The sixth-round pick is believed to hinge on Shaheen being on the Miami roster at some specific date in the regular season.
