Jim Harbaugh Breaks Silence on Bears' Trade for Keenan Allen

Jim Harbaugh, the new head coach of the Los Angeles Chargers, believes Keenan Allen is doing better than anyone else in his new home with the Chicago Bears.

In his first public comments about the deal, Harbaugh acknowledged the "business" side of the Chargers' departure from Allen when appearing at the NFL's annual owners meeting on March 25 in Orlando. 

The Bears traded a 2024 fourth-round pick for the six-time Pro Bowl wide receiver and the remaining $23.1 million on his deal.

As a former Bear, Harbaugh seems pleased with Allen's current circumstances."It's the business part of it," Harbaugh said, according to ESPN's Kris Rhim. "Everyone acts in their own best interests.

And Keenan, making $23 million per year and playing in Chicago, who has it better?"

The Bears and Chargers both have a shot to win the Allen trade. Chicago receives one of the league's most consistent receivers, who is coming off one of the best seasons of his 11-year career.

He caught a career-high 108 catches for the Chargers in 2023 and now brings his abilities to Chicago to work alongside standout DJ Moore and aid in the development of the Bears' upcoming rookie quarterback.

Meanwhile, Los Angeles addressed a salary-cap issue and added draft money to its soft rebuild under Harbaugh.
