SHARE Willie Young is reportedly looking for a trade from the Bears

Trades in the NFL may not be as frequent as other major sports, but the Bears have proven they aren’t afraid to deal a player, even during the season. With the NFL trade deadline coming Tuesday, the Bears may not be done moving players.

At least one Bears player hopes that’s the case. CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora reported outside linebacker Willie Young has requested a trade.

Young is playing his first year in a 3-4 defense, requiring him to move from his more comfortable position as a defensive end.

Despite the position switch, Young had reportedly been coming along nicely. Used as a pass rushing specialist in certain packages, Young has recorded four tackles with one sack on the season. Last year as a defensive end, Young had his first season of double digit sacks, totaling 10 on the season.

The Bears are in the middle of retooling their defense. They have already traded Jared Allen and Jonathan Bostic. Fellow defensive end turned outside linebacker Lamarr Houston said he hadn’t ruled out requesting a trade as well.
