We have an NFL trade!

The Chicago Bears have traded for speedy receiver Jakeem Grant from the Miami Dolphins for a 2023 sixth-round draft pick, according to multiple reports on Tuesday.

Grant is an elite return man (2nd team All-Pro last season) and will also bring value to the receiver position.

For the season, he had two catches for -7 yards, 46 yards on kickoffs, and 59 yards on punt returns.

As a return man with the Dolphins, he had three punts and two kickoffs returned for touchdowns over his five-plus year career.

He will likely be the new return man as Khalil Herbert will get more carries with the injury to David Montgomery.

For his career, Grant has 91 catches for 1,001 yards and five touchdowns, 2,206 yards on kickoffs, and 978 yards on punt returns.

He was a sixth-round draft pick out of Texas Tech in the 2016 NFL Draft.

During his collegiate career, he had 3,286 receiving yards and 31 total touchdowns.
