It may have taken a full season, but we finally know the compensation the Chicago Bears will receive from the Philadelphia Eagles for last offseason's trade that sent running back Jordan Howard, the only player to begin his career with back-to-back 1,000-yard rushing seasons with the Bears, to the City of Brotherly Love.
Unfortunately, Howard didn't deliver the way the Eagles probably hoped he would, and as a result, Chicago will receive a sixth-round pick in the 2020 NFL draft.
Had Howard excelled in Doug Pederson's offense, the Bears could've ended up with a fifth-rounder.
Howard appeared in just 10 games for the Eagles and finished the season rushing for 525 yards and six touchdowns. His 4.4 yards per carry was the second-best of his career and he likely would've had the kind of 2019 campaign that flipped the pick into a fifth-round selection had he been healthy for all 16 weeks. Howard missed several weeks with a shoulder injury and ended up losing his starting job to rookie Miles Sanders while he was out.
In Week 9 against the Bears, Howard ran for 82 yards and a touchdown in Philadelphia's 22-14 victory.
