Chicago Bears outside linebacker Roquan Smith can improve any team he joins.

But for their trade request to come true, the team must find the best partner for their skills.

Teams should line up to acquire a player of his caliber, especially after being second-team All-Pro for the past two seasons.

He chained his 98 solo tackles in 2021 with 95 in 2021.

The former Georgia player also has 14 sacks, 17 passes defended and five picks in his career so far.

Teams that trade for Smith should be able to absorb the $9.7 million Chicago owes him under his fifth-year option.

In this case, CBS Sports has shared the best destinations for Smith.

Writer Tyler Sullivan included the Dallas Cowboys as a possible landing spot to replace Leighton Vander Esch.

Upgrade aside, team owner Jerry Jones isn’t afraid to make huge financial commitments like Smith’s salary.

He could also play for the Miami Dolphins as his skills complement those of Jevon Holland, Christian Wilkins and Xavien Howard.

The New England Patriots could also have a hand in finding a better option at center linebacker than Cameron McGrone and Ja’Whaun Bentley.

Broncos and Ravens Best Landing Spots

The Denver Broncos could improve their center linebacker position which looks like a donut hole in the current rotation.

Smith is by far a better option than Jonas Griffith and Josey Jewell, which makes the trade wise.

He would also have a great time playing with Randy Gregory and Bradley Chubb.

Finally, Sullivan sees the Baltimore Ravens as the best destination due to their shallow depth at Smith’s position.
