For the first time since the conclusion of the 2023 regular season, Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields addressed the persistent trade rumors surrounding him during a podcast session with brothers Amon-Ra St. Brown of the Detroit Lions and Equanimeous St. Brown of the Bears.

Asked about his thoughts on the Atlanta Falcons, a team rumored to be interested in acquiring him and currently favored in betting circles for his potential landing spot, Fields expressed some reservations about returning home. He acknowledged the Falcons' roster strengths, highlighting playmakers like Bijan Robinson, Kyle Pitts, and Drake London, while also noting the team's defensive prowess in the previous season.

Fields also revealed his fondness for playing at stadiums away from home, mentioning another team linked to trade speculation. He specifically mentioned enjoying his experiences at Acrisure Stadium, home of the Pittsburgh Steelers, highlighting the electric atmosphere with the "Terrible Towels" waving during his rookie year.

Fields' connection with Pitts is evident, stemming from their friendship and shared agent. Both players appeared together in the NFL Films docuseries "Hey Rookie" in 2021. Additionally, Fields has ties to Falcons director of player personnel Ryan Pace, who played a pivotal role in drafting Fields during his tenure as Chicago's general manager in 2021.

Despite expressing a desire to stay in Chicago, Fields admitted fatigue from ongoing trade discussions, explaining his decision to unfollow the Bears on social media. However, he still maintains connections with several players, including Robinson, Pitts, and London, among others.

The quarterback's openness during the conversation with the St. Brown brothers suggests a desire for clarity regarding his future in the league. With trade rumors swirling, Fields and football fans alike anticipate resolution in the near future.
