The Bears on Tuesday bolstered their offense by acquiring veteran receiver Chase Claypool from the Steelers in exchange for a 2023 second-round pick, pending a physical.

Claypool, 24, has appeared in 39 games with 27 starts in three seasons in Pittsburgh, catching 153 passes for 2,044 yards and 12 touchdowns.

The 6-4, 238-pounder was selected by the Steelers with the 49th overall pick in the second round of the 2020 draft out of Notre Dame. The Bears chose Claypool's college teammate, tight end Cole Kmet, at No. 43 and cornerback Jaylon Johnson out of Utah at No. 50.

Claypool's career stats are comparable to Bears 2020 fifth-round pick Darnell Mooney, who has caught 167 passes for 2,050 yards and eight TDs in 41 games.

Claypool appeared in all 16 games with six starts as a rookie, catching 62 passes for 873 yards and nine touchdowns. Last year he recorded 59 receptions for 860 yards and two TDs while playing in 15 games with 13 starts.

Claypool started each of the Steelers' first eight games this season, catching 32 passes for 311 yards and one TD.

Take a look at new Bears receiver Chase Claypool in action. In 39 career games, all with the Steelers, the 6-foot-4, 238-pounder has caught 153 passes for 2,044 yards and 12 touchdowns.
