NFL Rumors: Contract talks for Jaylon Johnson and Darnell Mooney 'have not gone far'

As the NFL trade deadline approaches, curiosity regarding the status of some players being traded grows. 

 Two players in particular could be playing their final games with the Bears.

"Darnell Mooney and Jaylon Johnson are in the final year of their rookie contracts, and extension talks with both have not gone far,"

The 33rd Team's Ari Meirov recently reported. "Chicago is having another tough season, and unless it changes its approach in contract talks, considering a trade for one of them could be an option."

Johnson and Mooney were unable to reach an agreement on the extensions they were entitled for from their rookie contracts prior to the start of the season. 

Ryan Poles and the front office have very little motive to buy and try to trade for available players. 

The Bears' chances of making the playoffs --- or even achieving any success --- are slim. As a result, maximizing the value of their expiring contracts makes the most sense.

Last season, they followed the same course, dealing Roquan Smith and Robert Quinn to the Ravens and Eagles, respectively.
