Today the Chicago Bears traded former undrafted free agent Ryan Groy to the New England Patriots. Many thought it was for an undisclosed draft pick, but that is not the case. The Bears acquired former Mississippi State linebacker Matthew Wells instead.

Wells was a sixth round pick a few months ago, but can play both safety and linebacker. Wells boasts sideline-to-sideline speed and athleticism. He was a big-time playmaker for Mississippi State. He’ll have to earn his rookie keep on special teams, but has more upside for the Bears.
