Amid escalating speculation surrounding his future with the Bears, Justin Fields appears to be accepting the likely conclusion of his tenure in Chicago.
Addressing the media at Lambeau Field on Sunday, the quarterback took the podium and conveyed a sense of farewell. Justin Fields, the Chicago Bears’ quarterback, heads into the offseason facing an uncertain future.
Over three seasons, Fields has showcased himself as one of the NFL’s most formidable running quarterbacks. Despite this, questions loom about whether his contributions are sufficient for the team to forgo selecting a quarterback in the upcoming 2024 NFL draft.
With the Bears holding the number one pick in the 2024 NFL Draft, acquired through a trade with the Carolina Panthers, speculation mounts that the team might part ways with the 24-year-old quarterback in favor of a promising rookie like Caleb Williams or Drake Maye.
Fields’ performance in the recently concluded season, featuring 13 games, saw him amass 2,562 passing yards, 16 touchdowns, and nine interceptions. Additionally, he rushed 120 times for 657 yards, securing four scores.
