Jordan Howard posted a disappointing 2018-19 campaign. It appears the Bears' patience with him is seemingly wearing thin, as the former Pro Bowler's name is coming up in trade discussions. 

According to Adam Schefter, the Bears spoke with multiple teams about a potential deal for Howard at the NFL Combine, and discussions are ongoing. So let's break down the four best trade destinations for Howard. 

4. Kansas City Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs are in need of more bodies at running back since releasing Kareem Hunt. Chiefs' running back Damien Williams filled in admirably, but he's a little small for a feature back. Howard could be the thunder to Willams' lightning if the Chiefs acquire him. 

3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers thought they were getting a star running back when they drafted Ronald Jones II, but he barely saw the field in the 2018-19 season. Tampa Bay clearly needs to bring in an established running back, and Howard seems like a reliable low-cost option. 

The Buccaneers' offense could be much-improved next season if new head coach Bruce Arians can work his magic, and acquiring Howard would be an excellent start.

2. Indianapolis Colts

The Indianapolis Colts completely rebuilt their offensive line, and the results have been tremendous. Andrew Luck was sacked on a league-low 2.86 percent of his drop backs last season, and Marlon Mack ran for 908 yards and nine touchdowns in just 12 games. However, Mack has injury concerns, missing four games due to various injuries last year. 

Howard has only missed one game in his three-year career, making him an excellent insurance policy, and the ideal compliment to Mack.

1. Philadelphia Eagles

Jay Ajayi is expected to be out in Philly, leaving them in the same position they were last year when he got hurt: without a featured back. Howard can take a pounding and deliver it too. The Eagles won the Super Bowl with a smash-mouth back (LeGarrette Blount) and could get back on track if they make a move for Howard.
