Recent actions by Justin Fields on social media suggest that the Chicago Bears have made their quarterback strategy clear to him for this offseason.

Notably, the Bears' quarterback has unfollowed the team on Instagram, a move that fans quickly picked up on. While the implications of this decision can be interpreted in various ways, it appears to be a strong signal that Fields is preparing for the possibility of being traded by the Bears.

The Bears, who acquired the No. 1 pick in the draft from the Carolina Panthers in a deal that included their 2024 first-round selection for Bryce Young, are now faced with a pivotal decision. They must choose between continuing to develop Fields or trading him to select another quarterback with the top draft pick, potentially targeting USC's Caleb Williams, the 2022 Heisman Trophy winner.

Fields showcased significant improvement in the 2023 season, achieving career highs despite missing four games. The former Ohio State standout completed 61.4% of his passes for 2,562 yards, threw 16 touchdowns against nine interceptions, and added 657 rushing yards with four touchdowns on the ground.


The possibility of opting for Williams, or another top quarterback prospect, over Fields is understandable for the Bears. Williams not only presents a higher potential ceiling but also offers the Bears the opportunity to have a franchise quarterback under a cost-effective rookie contract for the next four to five years.
