Brandon Marshall has been traded to the Chicago Bears for two third-round picks. Chicago has plenty of room under the salary cap to handle Marshall's contract, and this deal makes a ton of sense from the Bears' perspective.

First off, it eliminates Chicago's biggest need: Marshall is a true No. 1 wide receiver and he gives Cutler the big body that this passing attack has desperately needed.
