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.

The move clears $1.27 million in cash and cap space for Chicago, leaving the Bears with seven tight ends on the roster, headlined by veteran Jimmy Graham and second-round rookie Cole Kmet.

  1. I bet this works out for Shaheen. Anything to get away from that dump of a franchise. Seriously. Matt Nagy? Hahahahaha.

  2. Amazing they got something (even conditional) for a guy who had 26 career catches for 249 yards and four touchdowns.

  3. To bad they couldn’t send a package deal and send the Dolphins a QB as well. You know just like Arizona did a few years back.

  4. Is it just me or is Ryan Pace finally getting exposed as an awful judge of offensive talent.

    His top 2 picks of 2017:

    1-Trubisky- gone SOON
    2-Shaheen- Been gone since the day he was drafted.

  5. 1 down and they still have 7? I figure the WFT (Washington Football Club) will be hanging around their HQ waiting to sign someone on cut-down day.

  6. Is it just me or is Ryan Pace finally getting exposed as an awful judge of offensive talent.

    His top 2 picks of 2017:

    1-Trubisky- gone SOON
    2-Shaheen- Been gone since the day he was drafted.

    or his other great draft choices

    2015 7th over all pick GONE after 25 rec for 285 yards…IN HIS CAREER
    2016 #9 overall pick GONE

    Amazing he still has a job.

  7. He has missed 21 out of 48 games and has one less catch (26) than games played (27). He may find himself out of a job unless he can stay on the field and be productive. He’s in the last year of his contract so we’ll see if he’s one of these guys that only cares when it’s a contract year. The Dolphins might be able to get some production out of him but I think Shaheen can kiss any guaranteed money goodbye in any future contract. In fact, unless he catches about 30 passes this year he’ll find himself bagging groceries next year.

    I will bet that Shaheen does not make the Fins final 53 so he Bears end up with nothing.

    Except a LITTLE sorely needed cap space.

  9. Just the fact he is no longer a Bear is a plus. Nothing against him personally but as mentioned, couldn’t stay on the field and didn’t produce when he was.

  10. Ryan Pace has turned a 2nd round pick into a 6th ! but only if the Dolphins fixate on his size and ceiling……just like Pace did. Way to pull the turd out of the punch bowl Ryan !
