The Chicago Bears are discussing trading offensive tackle Teven Jenkins after receiving interest in the 2021 second-round pick, sources told Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo of NFL Network.

The previous regime in Chicago drafted Jenkins, who missed most of his rookie season with a back injury. The Bears fired head coach Matt Nagy and general manager Ryan Pace, replacing them with Matt Eberflus and Ryan Poles, respectively, in January.

Jenkins missed three straight practices to begin training camp, but the Bears didn't say why he was absent. The 24-year-old initially ran with the first-team unit during offseason workouts but was surpassed by Larry Borom at right tackle.

The Bears' offensive line is one of their biggest question marks ahead of quarterback Justin Fields' second season.
