Gaines Adams Traded to Chicago Bears for 2nd Rounder | Fantasy Football Rankings


The Buccaneers have officially traded one of their top young talents on defense to the Chicago Bears. Defensive end Gaines Adams was the fourth overall pick by the Buccaneers in 2007, and he was traded away for a second round pick in next year’s draft.

On the bright side for Tamp Bay they did eat up 15 million in cap space by making the move. With economic times being what they are I guess the Buc’s are cutting their losses after a horrible beginning to the season.

Solid Deal for the Bears

In recent weeks Tampa Bay had been complaining about Gaines not getting the job done, and decided to cut bait.

In my opinion, Gaines poor production was more because of the talent around him and new coordinator Jim Bates is washed up as a defensive coach. Last season, Bates struggled to get the job done with a talented defense in Green Bay and this year his defense is getting killed.

Nevertheless, in Tampa Bay ( as most loser do) they fail to see the system problems and focus on star players not getting the job done.

Just this past week we saw Braylon Edwards perform much better in a Jet uniform than his old Browns’ uniform.

Now, I believe we will see Adams perform well in a Bear uniform as apposed to his old Buccaneers uniform.

In the end, this was a solid deal for the Bears as they get a talented player at age 26 that is under contract until 2012.

Fantasy Football Rankings for the Bears and Buccaneers Defenses

The Buccaneers have been horrible against the pass, and they will struggle even more without one of their top pass rushers. Look for receivers to continue to pound out the production against the sorry group.

As for the Bears, Gaines should only help a quality defense be that much more productive.

This is a win for all fantasy football owners with the Chicago Bears defense on their fantasy teams.
