The downside would be way too big of a risk to Jerry to do something like that. He would probably get suspended like Steinbrenner did in baseball. I'm sure some under-handed things to happen in trades. I can't prove this story so don't ask for a link, but a huge issue between Jerry and Jimmy occurred when Jimmy made a trade with his buddy Dave Wannstedt. Jimmy gave him a young player that they had just drafted and some picks for some marginal veterans that the Bears were probably going to cut anyway.
